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.
These are excellently crafted, both sleek, well-balanced and chic light hikers, which I really wish had fit me better. I decided the next size larger would be a risk, so I just returned them, as I have a broader metatarsal and these likely would suit a more standard, tapered toe shape, better than mine.
I have been wearing my Selvatica Mid boots for a few months now and I cannot say enough good things about them. I tend to have more sensitive feet when it comes to boots but these were pretty much comfortable right from the box. I also have a history of being pretty tough on footwear. I live in Vermont and spend my free time out on the trails with my dogs. We adventure in the Green Mountains and also in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. My most recent hike took me to the Southern Presidentials of the White Mountains. The terrain there is rough and rugged... lots of rocks. Ice up on the higher parts of the trails also. I wore my Selvaticas and even though they have quite a few miles on them already, they stayed strong and kept me upright and moving for the 10.5 mile day. The traction is pretty decent and I love how the boots feel so lightweight. Definitely better for me than the heavier backpacking boots. Looking forward to adding another pair of these to my hiking gear in the near future.
