BOOT FITTING: THE ART
  

When trying on boots, make sure to bring the socks you would normally wear and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use. Boots and shoes are handmade by skilled cobblers, using mostly natural materials. Therefore you can experience minor variations in dimension or upper from pair to pair in a given size. What you are looking for is the size that holds your toes ever so slightly away from the front of the boot while the lacing system is snug across the top of your arch. To check the length, you should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. The fit across the top of your arch is the single most important factor. If the lacing system here doesn't hold your foot in place, the boot will not be stable on your foot while you walk. If the boot is too short, your toes will get crushed walking downhill. Too long, and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters. Be patient and make sure you've got the right size and fit.
