HOW TO ACCURATELY MEASURE YOUR FEET TO FIND THE CORRECT BOOT SIZE
Start by collecting a few things from around your house, including a yardstick or ruler, a soft tailor’s tape or paper tape, a piece of cardboard or printer paper, and a pen.
Draw a 90° angle on the cardboard or paper using the yardstick or ruler. The lines should be long enough so that your longest toe touches the horizontal line and the widest point of your foot touches the vertical line.
Ensure that you’re wearing your hunting socks while taking these measurements. Stand on the paper or cardboard with your feet shoulder-width apart and place your full weight on both feet.
Have a second person mark where your heel and the widest part of your foot lands on the cardboard or paper. Ensure that you’re keeping the pen vertical when making your marks. Leaning the pen inward or outward against your foot will skew your measurements.
Place the edge of the tailor’s tape on the straight line and measure the widest and longest point of each foot down to 1/10th of a centimeter.
Add both length measurements together and divide them by two. This is your length measurement.
Add both width measurements together and divide them by two. This is your width measurement.
Record your measurements and refer to the GOHUNT Sizing Guide and Staff Reviews to find the right boot size for your foot profile.
GENERAL TIPS TO ENSURE YOUR NEW BOOTS FIT PROPERLY
Measure your feet with the socks you intend to wear in the field.
Measure your feet later in the day. Your feet tend to swell slightly as the day progresses.
The arch and heel of your foot should feel snug but not tight. Your heel should feel secure in the heel pocket. If your heel lifts up when you step, make sure the lacing is not too loose.
Your toes should not touch the front of the boot. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes. When you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is without your toes hitting.
If you're unable to cinch the boot tight enough to prevent heel slip or it allows your toes to touch the end of the boot, you will have a hard time with a heavy pack on steep downhill descents and you’ll want to size up.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BOOTS?
Proper boot care can significantly extend the lifespan of your boots. Leather boots, in particular, need to be cared for after heavy use. If your boots are wet and covered in dirt, we recommend cleaning them. If you’re not going to clean your boots, you should still allow your boots to air dry after each use.
Remove your insoles and laces after each use. This will open up your boots and allow them to air out. Even if your boots don’t get wet, they will naturally absorb moisture from your feet, especially on multi-day trips. Insoles and laces can be hand-washed in cold water and set out to air dry.
Using a boot brush and warm water, remove the dirt from your boots. The warm water will open up the pores of the boot and allow you to thoroughly clean them.
For leather boots, you’ll want to recondition the leather after cleaning them with warm water in order for them to remain water-repellant. Applying a waterproofing agent to the damp leather will reclose the pores that were opened up during cleaning. Once you’ve reconditioned your boots, water should bead up when gently poured over the leather.
Allow your boots to air dry. Do not use a heat source to dry your boots. The heat could cause the leather to shrink or become brittle, increasing the chances of irreparable rips or creases.
Store your boots in a cool and dry place to prevent mildew. We recommend packing a newspaper in the toe box of wet boots to help absorb the moisture and maintain the boots’ shape during the drying process.
Take your boots to a knowledgeable cobbler for repairs.
WHAT SHOULD I USE TO TREAT MY NEW BOOTS?
For a general-purpose waterproofing product, the GOHUNT staff has found that Granger or Nikwax Waterproofing performs the best.
Re-apply this product as necessary or after every use in severe conditions.
Please refrain from using beeswax, animal fats, or petroleum-based products on your boots, as these products will void some manufacturer warranties.
*Please note that these products may darken the color of any leather.
WHAT IF MY BOOTS ARE GORE-TEX®?
We recommend treating the leather on your Gore-Tex® boots the same as you would on any other leather boot.
The Gore-Tex® lining creates a waterproof/breathable membrane on the inside of the boot, but leather uppers still need to be cared for.
The durable waterproofness of the Gore-Tex® membrane is not affected by leather conditioners, silicone, oil, or shoe polish.
I would agree with GoHunt rating on stiffness for this pac boot. Sizing in terms of length was true to size with Kenetrek Mountain Extreme. Width is on the narrower side but breaks in a bit with use. If you have a wide foot these might not work for you. I wear a narrow in my Mountain Extreme's and these were pretty tight on my foot when new. The leather will need breaking in, it's very stiff. Wish they offered these in a bob sole but the rubber on this boot is very soft and has done pretty well in everything but straight up ice. Laces could be a bit longer, but they work. All in all I'm happy with the purchase, it's not to have a pac boot that it's ridiculously oversized in terms of fit.
I used these boots for a Montana hunt so far. They kept my feet warm and dry throughout the entire week I was there. Put in a few miles each day but mostly driving to spots then hiking to a glassing spot. They did pretty dang good on my pack out with a muley on my back. I recommend for guys that are hiking <6 miles a day in not too steep/rugged country.
When I first got them I was a little concerned about how tight they were on the sides of my feet but after a short break in time they were bread and butter. So don’t be alarmed if they are little narrow at first.
I have no issues with the quality of the boot. Seems to be sturdy. Definitely warm.
Unfortunately, they are too narrow for my feet (11.5 EE). Originally tried 11s per the size recommendation from the website and my foot would not fit in the boot even after removing the liner. Tried out 12s which I could get my foot in but far too tight on the sides of my feet.
The description suggests one size smaller than what you would wear in Nike, so I did, but they were too small. I sent an email asking for exchange information but never heard back. Only had great experience with gohunt before this, but never tried to return something. The boot looks good, maybe someday I'll find someone in need of boots with smaller feet than me... Update to review: I have since been contacted by gohunt, got the boots returned and ordered my normal size. I've only used them slightly, but I like them so far. First boot with removable liner, which I enjoy.
I bought these pac boots for hunting and working in the winter months in the cascade mountains. The pacific north west can dish out some seriously cold wet weather and these boots have been great!
