    boonie kaimai sizing

    Can someone please take a photo of sizing chart on the inside of their boonie kaimai boots for me please and either post here or pm to me.

    My last pair where just a bit small and I'm trying to remember what I needed.
    It doesn't matter what size you ones are....

    Thanks

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    No, I checked there.

    The reason I need a photo is I have in my head that my last pair was in US sizing. I just need to see a photo to match or disprove my memory.

    Thanks @Mr Browning My memory has not let me down. I remember seeing size US12 on my last pair. They were too small, I had to take out the inner soles and where a skinny business sock to make them fit. I'll go a size up this time round. I'm picking UK12 will be US13.

    Holy hell, size 12UK-13US. Mate, they are boots not flippers

    Ha ha, normally I'm a UK11 but I reckon you need a size up in the Kaimai boots.

    If I remember correctly it says on their website that many guys need a size up from normal especially if you are hiking with thick socks. Never quite understood why they would knowingly design them small or tight, anyway they are outstanding boots and I love mine. Especially at this time of the year...

    Im an 8 and got 8's, fit fine, I originally tried a 9 on, too sloppy for my feet. If I have any gripes at all, they are a right bastard to get out of lol.

    Yeah great boots. I like them for bush hunting. Can be a bit sweaty, a couple of days in them is fine but longer trips I like leather boots.
    Real pricks to get off!
