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, you’ll need a piece of paper larger than your foot, a pencil, and a measuring tape.

  1. Stand and place the paper on the floor in front of you. If you like, you can tape the paper to the floor to keep it from sliding around. Put your foot on the paper.
  2. Use a pencil to trace all the way around your foot. Try to keep the pencil perpendicular to the paper.
  3. When you’ve completely traced your foot, flip the paper over and trace your other foot on the reverse side.
  4. Use a tape measure to find the length of your foot at its longest point. Next, find the width at the widest point. Write these numbers on the paper.
  5. Subtract ¼ inch or about ½ centimeter from both the length and the width to account for the pencil outline.
  6. Use these measurements to find your shoe size on the chart below.

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, wear the socks you plan to wear with your pair of boots.
  • Always trace and 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 tracing, 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 trace the foot.
