Boot Options



Height (of uppers)

Boot heights are measured from top of midsole to top of upper. Similarly, measuring from the bottom of your foot and going up will produce the same measurement. This does not include the the boot heel height.

 6" 8" 10" 12" 14" 16" 18"



Everyone wears their soles differently. Similar to that of tires, each sole has an advantage above the rest. Choose your sole wisely, but, don't stress, you can always change it during your next resole.
