Fit

As Bill Crary says, “The LAST is always FIRST”.

A “last” is a mold (plastic or wooden) on which each boot is built. The last determines the FIT…heel height, toe spring, width, and depth of the boot. The last determines the comfort of the boot, and consequently we have invested a lot of time and effort into developing and refining each of our lasts.

HOW DO CRARY BOOTS FIT?

Every foot is unique.  We’re only providing these guidelines as a tool to assist with your sizing decision.  Ultimately, the choice of size is your responsibility.  Crary Boots is pleased to offer a fit guarantee.  If the size you select is not correct, we will exchange the boots for free.  The boots you return must be in unused, new condition.  We only ask that you pay return shipping to Crary (we will cover the cost of shipping the new boots to you).

Mt. Hood and Pacific Crest:

  • Fits true to size.
  • If you are BETWEEN sizes, we recommend ordering a ½ size down.
  • If you will be hiking in these boots, and are BETWEEN sizes, we recommend ordering a ½ size up.

Burnside:

  • Fits a ½ size big.
  • We recommend ordering a ½ size down (e.g. if you are a true size 10, order a 9.5).
  • If you are BETWEEN sizes, we recommend ordering a ½ size down.
  • Roomy toe box.

Badlands:

  • Fits true to size.
  • Has a narrower toe box, as this boot is built on a dress last.

MEASURING YOUR FEET:

We highly recommend doing a proper foot measurement, particularly if this is your FIRST time purchasing a pair of Crary Boots.

  1. Place a piece of blank paper on a hard floor.
  2. Stand on the paper wearing the socks of your choosing.
  3. Holding a pencil vertically (90º), place a mark at the end of your heel.
  4. Place another mark at the tip of your longest toe
  5. To find your size, measure the heel-to-toe mark in millimeters. We use millimeters instead of inches because it is more accurate.
