SIZE & FITTING ADVICE
For medium feet we suggest that you go up ½ a size on your SHOE size - this will allow for a thick sock with the boots. The AForme® refers to the more asymmetric shape of this last. Many of the features are taken from running shoe characteristics, a narrower heel and waist to hold and support the rear of the foot, an increased upwards toe lift (rocker), reduced sideways pressure on the large toe, and a wider forefoot with slightly above medium volume.
