HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this we make it easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and with a pen mark just behind your heel and in front of your longest toe.
2nd. Do this for both feet and then measure the centimeters between these lines. This measurement is your Mondopoint.
3rd. Using the measurement from your longest foot find your correlating size below.
I did intense research on hiking shoes, looking at what was available from every major brand. It was actually the lacing system that ripped the scale. And once I got my pair in the mail and tried them on ... I knew I had made the right decision. The shoes are super well made and very comfortable. They aren’t the cheapest option available, but I think I will have these for a long time, so happy to pay a little more than the mass market options.
My first pair of AKU shoes, I found that they fit perfectly used the suggested sizing method. Shoes were stiff which I appreciate given the recommended uses. The only thing I have done is upgrade the insole to one that is a little more substantial. Great shoe will be ordering a second pair when the new stock arrives.
