HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this it is very easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind you heel and in font 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.
If you think you need a heavy boot for spring, summer and fall adventures you're be wrong. This has become my favorite boot for all of my activities. I use them as approach shoes when getting to the crag, wear them on non-climbing ascents (when I'm photographing climbers), to the dog park and on just about any non-freezing hike. They're stable and supportive but still light which is key for me as I slow down in my late 30's haha
These boots are very light but very sturdy - great for day hikes on tricky terrain or longer treks with a heavier pack. I love how grippy they feel on slick rock and steep gravel. I recently took these on a multi-day trek on the JMT and they performed very well. The boots are a tad stiffer and slightly narrower than the Alterra GTX so I would consider sizing up next time. Otherwise a great lightweight boot!
I've been using the Selvatica Mid GTX throughout the hiking season in New England and I've found them to be among the most comfortable and lightest boots I've tried. I'm used to hiking with a heavier and taller boot for stability's sake, which often has my feet overheating, heavy, and unresponsive. With the Selvatica Mid, my feet were comfortable during cool, mild and warm hikes. I could move efficiently over a variety of terrain with a full pack thanks to the mid-height around my ankle and aggressive sole. The fit was excellent and true to size, with no hot spots or pressure points at the end of the day. For day hikers and weekend warriors such as myself, these boots are a full package that can accommodate a variety of lengths. I'm looking forward to pushing these boots through some more intense hikes this fall.
