Complete Fit Guide - Hound and Hammer

IF THE SHOE FITS…WEAR IT!

EVERY SHOE WE MAKE IS TECHNICALLY DESIGNED TO FIT “TRUE TO SIZE.”  THAT BEING SAID THERE ARE VARIABLES IN THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE “LAST” (THE FORM THAT CREATES THE SHAPE OF THE SHOE DURING MANUFACTURE) AND OF YOUR FEET (MANY OF YOU ARE IN-BETWEEN OR WEAR DIFFERENT SIZES IN DIFFERENT TYPES/BRANDS OF SHOES) THAT CAN MAKE SELECTING THE RIGHT SIZE A CHALLENGE!

HERE IS THE QUICK GUIDE TO ORDERING YOUR HOUND & HAMMER BOOTS: ORDER THE SAME SIZE AS YOUR FAVORITE ATHLETIC SHOES!  THAT’S IT!  FEEDBACK FROM OUR CUSTOMERS HAS OVERWHELMINGLY CONFIRMED THIS ADVICE.

IF THE SHOES ARE A BIT ROOMY, YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD THE EXTRA ORTHOLITE INSOLES THAT COMES FREE WITH EACH PURCHASE.

ABOUT THE EXTRA COMPLIMENTARY INSOLE...

WHEN YOU FIRST OPEN YOUR HOUND & HAMMER BOX YOU WILL SEE THAT THERE IS AN EXTRA “ORTHOLITE” REMOVABLE INSOLE SITTING ON TOP OF YOUR BOOTS.  THOSE ARE “EXTRA” INSOLES AND MOST WEARERS WITH MEDIUM TO MEDIUM-WIDE FEET WON’T NEED TO USE THEM!   YOUR BOOTS ARE MANUFACTURED WITH A FULL PADDED INSOLE ALREADY INSTALLED AND, UNLESS YOU HAVE A NARROWER OR LOW VOLUME FOOT, WILL PROBABLY FIT GREAT WITHOUT ADDING THIS EXTRA INSOLE.  SO IF YOU INSERTED THOSE INSOLES AND FIND THE BOOTS NOW FEEL A BIT TIGHT, PULL ‘EM BACK OUT AND CHANCES ARE THE BOOTS WILL NOW FIT JUST FINE.  BUT DON’T THROW THEM OUT!  OUR INSOLES WOULD COST YOU UP TO $10 AT THE STORE!  KEEP THEM AND THROW THEM IN AN OLD PAIR OF SNEAKERS TO GIVE THEM A FEW MONTHS NEW LIFE, OR GIVE THEM TO YOUR KID BROTHER WITH THE SKINNY FEET!

WE USE SEVERAL DIFFERENT LASTS TO BUILD OUR BOOTS.  EACH OF THESE LASTS WILL HAVE ITS OWN DISTINCT SHAPE AND FITTING CHARACTERISTICS.

IF YOU WANT TO DIG A LITTLE DEEPER INTO THE FITTING TAKE A LOOK BELOW!

 

VALOR LAST - STYLES: RONAN AND GUNNAR 
THIS IS OUR SNUGGEST FITTING LAST – WITH A SLEEKER, DRESSIER FEEL.  MEANT TO WEAR WITH A LIGHTER WEIGHT SOCK. ORDER THE USUAL SIZE YOU WEAR FOR ATHLETIC SHOES. IF YOU ARE IN BETWEEN SIZES OR HAVE A WIDE FOOT, ORDER ONE HALF-SIZE UP.

ALLIANCE LAST - STYLE: MADDOX, MADDOX 2
THIS LAST HAS A LONG TOEBOX (AREA FROM BALL OF FOOT TO END OF TOE).  IF YOU HAVE A NARROW OR LOW VOLUME FOOT, YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF SLIDING FORWARD IN THE FRONT OF THE SHOE. IN THIS CASE, SIMPLY INSERT THE EXTRA COMPLIMENTARY INSOLE TO ADD VOLUME.  MEANT TO WEAR WITH MEDIUM WEIGHT SOCKS.
