How's the fit? How do you size in comparison to other lasts?

Very nice @IIIrd Icon.

 

My pair are currently somewhere over the Pacific, if the tracker is accurate. Looking forward to them arriving.

'Really more of a lace-up kinda guy, so the Hopper was a huge leap for me.

Out of the box, there was a lot of tugging to get in. For awhile there thought I messed up cuz it's my 1st time to handle boots w/o laces or zips🙄 ... Once I got 1 foot in, I was relieved__ it may take a few wears to soften & stretch the lower shaft [for easier access], but I'm confident now it's going to work🙏🏻

'Sized up 1/2 from my 1035, which I'm glad I did🤘🏼

That chamois came out fantastic.

 

Your moonwalking really brings out the color of those boots :D

Curious how a corded heel compares with a standard rubber heel with regard to softness. Can anyone compare? (I actually like a softer heel for some cushion -- I'm a heel striker..)
post #15969 of 19290
Not softer. Been wearing my Context HB last three days instead of my IHVB B-O-T with Cat's Paw.

Not sure what evo route to take just yet ... but, it seems the Chamois will turn out fabulously__ whatever care/maintenance it's going to get.

@BurntPockets__ was chasing for better lighting🤓

sized up, huh? Thats pretty surprising. most size down slightly for non-laced shoes as there is less ability for tightening/adjustment. Very interesting so thanks for providing the info

I had the same problem with Viberg's 2005 engineer last. It's shorter for sure, and my usual Viberg size - which is the same in every other last - had my toes pressed up against the front.
