What boots are we building for your final order?
Are you ordering boots with a safety toe?
Please note that we cannot guarantee the comfort of safety toe boots. This includes steel, composite, and double celastic toe boots. Toe discomfort is not covered under warranty. Boots will not be exchanged or returned due to safety toe discomfort. Safety toes can be removed at customer's request. This can cost from $50-255 depending on the boot model ordered. Does customer understand?
I understand that Nicks Boots can't guarantee the fit of safety toe boots *
Let's Get Started with the Fit
I currently have someone assisting me with the fit *
Are the false tongues (leather-fringed brush-guards) laced in? *
Will you be using false tongues with your final boot? *
Let's get walking for 10-15 minutes!
This helps relax the 7000+ nerves in the feet providing accuracy to the measurements taken in this evaluation.
Have you walked (indoors) for 10-15 minutes? *
Heel Verification
Heel Right Boot: How does your heel feel? *
Heel Left Boot: How does your heel feel? *
If your heels feel loose and will likely cause a blister, have you re-laced the boots properly (i.e. tongue folded to one side, and the laces have no movement or "slack" left in them)? *
If "Yes" continue with fit evaluation. If "No": Re-lace following proper lacing instructions. Walk again, indoors, for 5 minutes.
Boots were re-laced using proper lacing instructions. *
Did you re-walk a second time for 5 minutes? *
Heel Right Boot: Is the heel still sloppy? *
Heel Left Boot: Is the heel still sloppy? *
Length Measurement Verification
Standing naturally, with your body weight evenly distributed between both feet, have the one assisting you push hard with their thumb sideways (see photo below) in front of the longest toe. We need to confirm that there is 3/4"-1" of space between the longest toe and the first row of stitching.
Thumb's width example.
Right Boot Length: How much space do you have? *

Left Boot Length: How much space do you have? *

Width Measurement Verification
"Uncomfortably snug" is normal. Break in will change the snugness from uncomfortable to comfortable.
Right Boot Width: At the the widest part of the right foot, please describe how the leather feels around the foot. *
Right Boot Toes: How do your toes feel in the toe box? *
Right Width and Toe Notes:
Left Boot Width: At the the widest part of the left foot, please describe how the leather feels around the foot. *
Left Boot Toes: How do you toes feel in the toe box? *
Left Width and Toe Notes:
Width: In general do you prefer a firm fit or a relaxed fit? *
Arch Position
This is verifying the correct placement of the arch support.
Centered arch support is felt just ahead of the heel, +/- 1/4" toward the front or back of the boot.
You might feel the arch most prominently in the center (right over the Vibram logo) and less so on the inside and outside.
Right Arch: Refer to photos above. Does the arch feel centered? *
Right Arch Support Notes:
Left Arch: Refer to photos above. Does the arch feel centered? *
