Fitting Tips

Most of our footwear runs true to normal shoe size. To achieve best fit, we recommend that you select your normal shoe size. If you are unsure of what your actual size is, please follow the steps below.

Note that some of our boots are available in Narrow and Wide, as well as the standard Medium width. Narrow sizes are 7-8mm narrower than Medium, while Wide sizes are 7-8mm wider.

Kenetrek Pac Boots: If you normally wear a half size, we recommend that you order up to the next whole size. You can enhance your fit by adjusting the thickness of your sock combination to provide a snug comfortable fit. Be sure not to make your boots too tight as it will make your feet colder. If you have a narrow foot, try one of our Performance Insoles inside the liner. Women can often wear our pac boots comfortably; just order 1-1½  sizes smaller than your normal shoe size (we also suggest adding a performance insole inside the liner).

How to Measure

To measure properly, we recommend using a stationary vertical surface such as a wall and a measuring tape or ruler. Remove any socks when measuring.

  1. Stand with your heel against the vertical surface.
  2. Measure to the tip of the foot with the measuring device. Be sure to measure both feet. Take a note of the larger number.
  3. Measure both feet at their widest point.
  4. Use these measurements to find your shoe size on the chart below.
  5. Add a half size to allow for layering of socks and variations in feet size throughout the day. As an example, while a (male) foot measuring 25.9 cm is a 9 on the sizing scale, you would select a size 9½ boot.

Helpful Measuring Tips

Keep these tips in mind to help you get the best results from your measurement:

  • Take your measurements at the end of the day, especially if you know your feet tend to swell throughout the day.
  • When measuring, a bare foot will allow for more accuracy.
  • Always measure both feet, since it’s common for one foot to be a bit larger than the other. Use the largest foot to find your shoe size.
  • If you’re having trouble keeping your balance while measuring, do it next to a chair or table that you can hold to steady yourself. Some people also find it easier to have a friend use the tape measure.
