In some cases getting a couple sizes or styles and trying them then sending back what you don't like is the only way. I have had luck going to outdoor shows and trying some. It isn't easy. Also, I encourage you to call and talk to the manufacturer if you have specific foot issues. They can steer you to the right models to try.How are you guys buying boots by mail?
It takes me a good while at Sportsman's Warehouse (great selection of brands), trying on boots. No brand has the same fit at the same size. You just know when you hit the right one.
I just can't see ordering boots online, trying them on, sending them back, one pair at a time.
Merrills used to fit my fit perfectly, but they changed something in manufacturing and no model seems to work now.
Danners are usually a great fit.
Would like to move up to Kenetrek or Schnees.
