Sizing is strange, but good value.

Like others, I had difficulty settling into the right size. In other European shoes I wear a 44 (or 44.5) and in US size I wear a 10.5 and this is fairly standard if you consult other conversion charts. However, Zamberlan sizes the 44 as a 9.5 (it is printed on the shoe tongue) and the 45 as a 10.5. After trying on both sizes, I ended up with the 44, even though according to Zamberlan I would not normally fit in a US 9.5.

The boots are light, not overly rugged, but a good value with the deep discount. I suppose one benefit of the strange size is that they ended up in Sierrra Trading Post inventory, if you can find the right size.

Boots performed well on a week trip in the Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, Canyons of the Acients and Four Corners area.
