ZAMBERLAN® FIT

The foot plays an important role in supporting the weight of the entire body as well as locomotion. The bones of the foot are arched longitudinally to help facilitate this support function. The transverse arch helps with movements of the foot. These movements help keep the sole (plantar surface) in contact with the ground despite the unevenness of the ground surface. They also work in concert with the ankle joint to help propel the foot off the ground during the toe-off portion of your gait.

The engineering of our lasts and footwear construction take into account all the anatomical aspects of the foot, making it a true investment in your feet. This is why Zamberlan® engineered and created different lasts, based on the anatomical features of the foot and the requirements for various end-use applications.

Generally, Zamberlan boots are all comfortable, not too long and have a good volume.

BOOT LASTS & SIZE CHARTS

To find out your Zamberlan footwear size, measure the distance from the back of your heel to the tip of your longest toe. For a realistic measurement, do this while wearing a pair of socks.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Place a sheet of paper on the floor and trace your foot with your heel against a wall, making sure to keep your foot perpendicular to the wall
  2. Measure the outline from the back of your heel to the front of your toes. 
  3. Find this measurement in the chart below, corresponding to the selected LAST for the model you are considering. Note, if you are between two measurements, use the next biggest cell to the right.
  4. Repeat these steps for both feet. If one foot is bigger than the other, order the size that fits your bigger foot.
  5. Follow the column down and find your Zamberlan US size.
For more information, please see our Knowledge Center article "Getting the Best Fit and Finding Your Correct Size


Tip #1:
 
It is not uncommon for some Zamberlan customers to find their ideal size is 
½ size smaller than what they may use in their everyday footwear. While most find Zamberlan runs “true to size”, some have to size down by this ½ size to get an ideal fit.

Tip #2:

Due to the technical nature of our footwear, particularly the stiff midsoles in our backpacking boots, getting the correct size is of paramount importance. Get too big of a boot, and you may be subject to heel blisters caused by heel slippage. Get too small of a boot, and you may endure toe rubbing and cramping.

It pays to take your time and get it right! If you are not able to try on multiple sizes, try the tips and foot measuring approach detailed above.
