the real deal

My feet are always tricky to fit because I'm a 12.5 (European 47) low volume foot. I ordered the 13D and it was really tall in the toe box and longer than I needed. So I ordered the 12D (European 46) and it fits absolutely perfectly. So I'd say these run a tad big. I am wearing the Smartwool Heavyweight hiking socks with them and my toes have just enough room to move around and are not touching the front. Break-in will take a while, so I probably won't be wearing these on my elk hunt this week, but the vibram sole is flexy/squishy, perfect for hunting in the wet Pacific Northwest. Full leather and Gore-tex are standards for around here.
