Size guides

Finding the right size

1. Put on a thin sock and measure your foot length on both feet.

2. Measure from heel to toe (it´s easier if you put your heel against a wall).

3. Then add 2 cm for extra toe space and compare with the sizes in the table below.



For our collection of boots, we work with several different lasts but for this season we want to make it simpler for you and our consumers. We now introduce Wide for wide feet and Slim for slim feet - and then we have the “normal” that most people will fit in.

    What’s the difference between a summer and a winter boot?

    Most of our hiking boots are made for use in spring, summer and autumn. We also have winter boots, such as Skare mid and Stuore Insulated.

    Of course, you can wear a summer boot in the winter, but here are some differences between summer and winter boots:

    • Winter boots generally have a softer rubber compound in the sole, which gives a better grip in cold and icy road conditions (but wears faster in summer)
    • Winter boots often have a wool lining or other insulating lining to retain the heat from the foot
    • Winter boots often have an insulating midsole, so that ground cold does not penetrate into the shoe

    How big should winter boots be?

    Winter boots should be a little roomy, both to accommodate a pair of thick wool socks (preferably with a thin wool liner closest to the foot) and to allow some air for the foot to warm up.

    When it comes to size, our winter boots are designed so you can follow our standard size chart:

    What is a shell boot?

    A shell boot has no lining inside. An ordinary boot with a membrane or leather lining can keep water out for a while, but once it gets wet, it takes a long time to dry it. A shell boot has a cellular rubber bottom, which makes them completely waterproof at the bottom. As long as you take care of the leather, it will remain waterproof for many, many years. As there is no lining or other material that absorbs water, shell boots are extremely quick-drying, allowing you to wade with them.

    Which ski and skate boot should I choose?

    Our ski and skate boots have many fantastic features, including excellent moisture and water resistance, and a felt liner that can be removed and dried, worn in your tent or replaced at the end of its life.

    The Guide BC and Guide Expedition BC are constructed in the same way, but there are some differences:

    • The Guide Expedition BC has a wider and roomier last, ideal for those who want a little extra room for warm socks or have wide feet. The Guide BC is suitable for those who want a slightly tighter fit, e.g. for increased stability if they are to be used for Nordic skates.
    • The Guide Expedition BC has a 5 mm thick liner, while the liner in the Guide BC is 3 mm thick.
    • The Guide Expedition BC has a higher shaft than the Guide BC.

    What are the warmest winter/ski and skate boots?

    Our warmest winter boot is the Skare Expedition and our warmest ski and skate boot is the Guide Expedition

    • A warm hiking boot or ski and skate boot should have an insulating lining – we have opted for a removable wool liner. This simplifies drying and extends the life of the product, as the liner can be replaced. In the Skare Expedition, the liner is also reinforced with Primaloft Aerogel around the toes.

    How do I take care of my boots?

    Wax the leather regularly. If you have single-layer boots, you can use Leather Grease instead of (or as a complement to) the wax. Is the leather Nubuck? You can spray them if you want to keep the surface as it is, but you have to spray often. Wax is better in the long run, but the surface will be shinier and darker. The cellular rubber part can be washed with water and mild soap but no other products should be used. Wear the boots frequently and store them in a cool place if you are not going to use them for a while.

    Our wax is always a safe choice

    Single-layer boots or very dry leather– choose Grease

    Keep the nubuck surface – choose spray

    Did you know that we can repair your Lundhag boot if it has broken or becomes worn out? Read more about boot care here.

    Can my boots be repaired?

    Our skilled shoemakers in Järpen have all worked with our boots for a long time and we can repair most things. Common repairs include replacing soles, repairing and improving seams, reshaping the cellular rubber, replacing the cellular rubber bottom section and reshaping the footbed. As a rule, it is better to repair at an early stage – sort out the repair as soon as you notice that the seam has started to come apart, etc. Taking care of your boots will extend their life!

    Can I wear a felt liner in my normal boots?

    No. Unfortunately, only boots made for a felt liner are suitable for one (they come with a liner and are specifically designed to be the right fit for it). A felt liner adds 3–5 mm in all directions, which makes a huge difference to the volume. To make boots as warm as possible without a liner, we recommend wearing double wool socks, one thin and one as thick as you can have without things getting too tight (it’s the air that traps the warmth).
