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.
I purchased these as slightly overkill boots for wet and rocky day hikes in PNW. They are just flexible enough to allow for a normal gait, and more than supportive enough to carry a backpacking load. The sole is good in clay mud and wet rocks, with minimal slippage. Though not tried, I'm sure these would work well in the snow. I have low volume feet, and wide at the toe box. Most boots are too narrow in the toe box and too loose in the ancle. Aku boots fit me very well, but I have to use a thicker polyurethane insole to lower the volume a bit. These boots are the most comfortable boots I have ever had that still offer a lot of support. The flex is just right, as is the cushioning, with a nice return spring. There is minimal padding, especially around the ancle, and the materials are on the stiff side initially, so some breaking in is recomended. The only downside for me, is that because the ancle cuff is quite snug, the breathability is not good. I would love to use these in the summer too, but they are warm and need to be removed every 2 hours to vent. Luckily I have the Tributte 2 which is a fantastic Summer boot!
