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.
Comfortable, great in steep-uneven terrain.
Side-sloping with a heavy pack is a breeze and the stiff shank has given me a ton of confidence in the mountains.
I highly recommend these boots to outdoor professionals.
Superb quality. A bit stiffer sole than I needed. Not too narrow for my wider feet. High arch support. Seem extremely durable.
Best pair of boots I've ever owned - Incredible, well thought out, and very comfortable. Out of the box and on your feet - you feel confident, secure and safe no matter where you are using these.
