HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this we make it easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind your heel and in front of your longest toe.
2nd. Do this for both feet and then measure the centimeters between these lines. This measurement is your Mondopoint.
3rd. Using the measurement from your longest foot find your correlating size below.
Excellent pair of boots. The Vibram outsole is fantastic, with a nice heel brake. Rubber gives great grip even in extreme cold weather. Way better than the proprietary outsoles on competitors boots. The lower stitching is covered on these, which is great cause that was a vulnerable point on the standard Pilgrims. The flexibility of the sole is pretty much the same as the regular Pilgrims, however the upper is much more flexible. The leather on the lower portion of the boot is also much thinner and more flexible than the original Pilgrims. The lace loop on the tongue is a great feature for keeping the tongue centred. And the lace pocket in the tongue is awesome for keeping the laces from flopping when hiking in shorts, or when in uniform. The color is listed as a shade of green, but they’re close enough to brown I can get away with wearing them in uniform. Way closer to brown than the green/beige original Pilgrim DS. Super breathable, I prefer non Gore-Tex boots and these are cool and dry. With regards to fit, definitely get a half size down. All my other boots are 9.5, and the insoles that are sized for those fit perfectly in a size 9 Pilgrim. Heel pocket and instep fit the same as 9.5’s from other brands, but the forefoot width is average to slightly narrow. I have a wide forefoot so I’d prefer a little wider, but they still work for me. If you want something for heavy loads over rough terrain choose the original Pilgrim instead. Only thing I’d change is making the middle lace loop a metal lace lock like the Pilgrim Combat instead of the webbing loop on these, but I get that it’s supposed to be light and flexible. Overall super happy, these are a great light flexible boot. For the price these blow the usual suspects from competitors out of the water.
Great boot, wish they came in tan or brown. Best lacing system compared to the other Pilgram boots. The fabric loop is superior to the metal lacing loop.
Excellent boot. Very minimal break in time necessary, flex in toe box relaxed quickly. perfect weight for the amount of support provided.
