What it's not
Due to the handmade nature of JK Boots, here are some disclaimers to be aware of that may vary and be uneven, offset, or different, throughout each individual boot; the color, leather finish, texture, thickness, stitching lines, spacing, eyelets, hooks, quarter spacing, uppers positioning, heel counter position, sole stitching. Stitching on uppers and soles may be frayed, or appear torn in some area. All of these things are normal for handmade boots. Rest assured that quality is not compromised. Appearances may be deceiving and always take second priority when it comes to building quality handmade boots.
What it is
Custom fitting means we can fit proper foot length, foot width, and calf circumference. Usually during this process, boots will fit 10 times better, and will fit better than any other footwear. We use a combination of in store fitting, try on boots, and measurements, do determine your suggested size. There are almost no limitations with length and width for us. In the past we have done things to help people in all kinds of circumstances, from making more room for bunions and matching foot shape, to hammer toes and foot amputees.
Out-of-store custom fitting is determined by measurements provided by you. You are responsible for providing correct, detailed measurements, and then we will offer our suggested sizing based on those measurements. Our suggested size may not be your preferred size, from that point on, you may or may not need to use a combination of oiling, break-in time, liners, or socks. Please understand, It's impossible for us to guarantee your preferred sizing because of the following example; Two twins with identical feet could receive an identical suggested size. One prefers a tighter fit, while the other prefers a looser fit. One is simple and has no problems with the size or the boots at all, he loves them, the other has many questions and issues with the boots. For this reason, we offer our suggested size, and then it's up to you to get yourself there. We are on your team, and here to help.

Comfort means having a proper length, width, arch support, and heel height which may provide better current and long term foot health.
Comfort is not a promise to make all your foot issues go away. There are many factors like fatigue, weight, bone structure, injury, genes, unknown medical issues that may come into play.
