  • Q & A

Size question? What is the difference in size 40 and 40.5? I saw somewhere else it looks like the sizes that are .5 are medium width, is this accurate?

Hey Joanna, the .5 size difference is a difference in the EU sizing. EU sizing is measured in cm so you are seeing a size difference of ~.5cm.

Boot Love

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are awesome for hiking and backpacking. They offer ample support and are really comfortable out of the box. I found them to run true to size. I love the dual lacing zone. You can tighten the lower and upper independently of each other thanks to a gripping eyelets mid way. Love the soft full leather outer and nice padding around the ankle.

Great Boot!

    I bought these for my mom-in-law and she loves them! she would not take them off walking around the house. they have been traveling down south and hikes in them everyday. Great fit, great style and easy to break in!

    Solid construction and great fit.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Needed to replace a 20 year old pair of Raichle boots, which aren't even made anymore. Wanted a full leather boot, so looked at several websites of both retailers and manufacturers to see who made women's boots. Tried several differnet pairs, and these fit my foot right out of the box without being too short, too narrow in the toe box, uncomfortable ankle collar, etc. Was impressed with the construction (not chintzy hardware), nice materials, and overall fit/finish. Took them following weekend backpacking to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and no problems. Been on several short hikes since, and these are great for shorter hikes too. I don't have a narrow foot, but my heels are more narrow. No major slipping - just normal tiny movement with a shoe having stiff sole. SIze seems spot on.

    Scarpa Hunza GTX Women's

    I am trying to decide between the Hunza...

    I am trying to decide between the Hunza and the Manali --which are basically the same boot but the Hunza is leather and the Manali is synthetic. I have tried on both and they both fit great. I will use them for snowshoeing, long day hikes (up to 12 miles) and I do maybe 2 backpacking trips per year (40 pound pack). I have bunions, which are my biggest issue (and the ball of my foot tends to gets sore too). Which boot would you recommend for my needs?

    The Scarpa Hunza GTX has a dual density midsole and the Manali GTX doesn't. The Hunza GTX just might be more comfortable on longer days but YMMV. Fit is of course paramount. If they fit the same, go for the boot with the dual density midsole.
