Recommended Sizing Method

Place a blank piece of paper flat on the ground, against the edge of a wall. Stand barefoot on the paper, with your heel to the wall. Since it is important to stand up straight, preferably have someone help you draw a line in front of the longest toe. Remember to measure both feet as they might not be identical. With a ruler, measure the distance from the edge of the paper to the mark and add additional space according to the list below.

Additional space

  • Hiking, Biking, Running, and Approach footwear add approx. 1 cm.
  • Mountain and Winter footwear approx. 1.5 cm.

Skiing boots

  • Nordic add approx. 1 cm.
  • Backcountry, A.T., Telemark, and Downhill add approx. 1.5 cm

    Note that this method is purely intended as a guideline. Below is Scarpa's own recommendations.

    All SCARPA non-plastic footwear and our Alien 3.0 uses European sizing.

    • 1 Euro whole size = 6.6 mm = 0.26 inches
    • 1 US whole size = 8.4 mm = 0.33 inches
    • The 30 Euro sizes below cover the same size range as 24 US sizes
    • Euro sizes provide a better, more precise fit for your intended use
    • For mountaineering boots, upsize (1/2+ sizes) depending on desired fit.

    SCARPA ski boots use Mondo sizing.

    SCARPA ski boots break on the half size, this means that a half size shares the same shell length as the whole size above it but the liners are lasted for each 1/2 size. For example, a 25.5 and 26.0 are the same shell size but the respective liners come pre-molded to the half size.

    Some skiers may want to downsize up to 1 full Mondo size, depending upon personal preference.

    SCARPA plastic mountaineering boots are based on the UK sizing scale, which has equivalent increments to the US sizing scale.

    • 1 UK whole size = 8.4 mm = 0.33 inches
    • 1 US whole size = 8.4 mm = 0.33 inches
