Specific Ladies’ Fit
This is perhaps the most important characteristic or feature of a boot that you must judge for yourself. It is only by trying the boot out that one can verify the perfect compatibility. Elements of anatomy, detailed studies, but most of all a long term, direct experience has led Zamberlan to develop an extremely comfortable and well-fitting boot.
Proven lasts; roomy toe box; correct flex point; adequate arch, ankle and torsional support; around-the-ankle comfort zone; comfortable hold of the heel; positive height; smooth wrap of the foot and even contact; sculptured padding; fine details in the manufacturing process. All these are important issues we take into account to provide good fit.
Zamberlan have different lasts, accordingly to different targets, such as the anatomy of the user and destination of the boot, as well as to the intended purpose of the boot. We have specific lasts for female users, that take into account the anatomy differences between male and female feet. We have different lasts for different markets as not all feet are the same. We also take into account the different intended purpose of the boot as we believe the necessities are not the same for an ice climbing boot versus a light weight boot for on-trail use.
Our boots do have a roomy toe box without being sloppy which allow the toes to wiggle and therefore to help keep you stable. A better, overall comfort is provided.
Thanks to the midsoles we use, our boots flex at the correct flex point, following the natural movement of the foot when walking, and the midsole in combination with the last and the upper ensure a correct and firm arch, ankle and torsional support, which are mostly appreciated when carrying loads or traversing.
The upper designs and padded collars ensure a good comfort zone around the ankle and we make sure the contact between the boot upper and the foot is even.
The heel and the toe cup together with the sculptured padding will help hold the foot in place and protect it from stones and pointed rocks.
The removable easy-to-wash Zamberlan footbeds are anatomically designed to grant a comfortable home for your feet. They take into account features like shock absorption, moisture and foot perspiration wicking, internal stability, helping to ensure a comfortable “inside the boot” environment.
After some break in, the boots will become gradually more comfortable and they will fully adapt to the individual foot shape, soon becoming old friends!
