Fit and last shape
The Karrimor last is generally recognised as a higher-volume last; which means the fit feels wider – more akin to the British and European foot shape. Karrimor sells boots and shoes in full and half sizes to ensure a good fit. Karrimor recommends wearing your boots around the house to ensure they fit well before wearing them outside.
Outsole Karrimor use durable outsoles that provide high levels of grip. Karrimor uses Vibram outsoles on all its models, which are widely recognised as the market leader in outdoor footwear outsoles. Vibram outsoles can be replaced when they do finally wear out. Many of the Vibram outsoles used are exclusive designs Karrimor has developed with Vibram – exclusive to Karrimor designs and last.
