Buying and fitting advice?
Try on both boots, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking.
Try several models and various sizes if necessary.
Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying shoes on.
Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
What size should I choose?
For hiking, do not hesitate to buy one size larger than the usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and to avoid toes rubbing at the tip of the shoe. Tip: keep your toenails short, and before going downhill at any time, check that your laces are tight enough to stop your feet slipping down towards the front of the shoes.
