Fit & Features

What size am I in your kicks?

Our kicks generally run true to sneaker size. Sizing from other brands can be misleading and inconsistent, so we recommend measuring your foot. You can find a size chart on every product page. For accurate sizing, stand barefoot on a ruler and measure from heel to toe. Then, compare with the Men’s Size Chart or Women’s Size Chart.

Do you offer extended sizing?

We do not offer extended sizing at this time. All of our shoes are Medium width.

What is the men’s to women’s conversion?

Generally women's sizing is about 1-1.5 sizes larger than men's. For example a men’s 9 is about a women’s 10-10.5. For the most accurate sizing, measure your foot. For accurate sizing, stand barefoot on a ruler and measure from heel to toe. Then compare with the charts above.

Product Care

Do I need to add any extra waterproofing or protectant?

All of our waterproof styles have an internal waterproof membrane so there is no need for extra waterproofing. We have a rigorous test for all of our models with a waterproof membrane. We flex the shoe 25,000 times while it sits in a tub of water with red dye and then let it sit for a full 24 hours. We only approve models that pass with no red dye on the inside after testing.

How should I clean my Forsakes?

You can find more information on our Shoe Care page.

What shoe care products should I have on hand?

A soft shoe brush or a microfiber cloth: Have a general brush that can be used on any type of shoe material, though having a specific shoe brush for every material is ideal.

Protectant / water repellant: Helps protect shoes of all materials from normal wear and tear, weather and stains.

Cleaning kit: Make things easy and get a specialized cleaning kit, which will include all the materials you need to keep your sneakerboots looking brand new.

Product recommendations:
Leather: Bickmore Bick 4 Leather Care
Suede & Nubuck: Bickmore Suede & Nubuck cleaner
Re-sealing: SnoSeal

What can I do to clean and extend the life of my sneakerboots?

Our sneakerboots are built for an active and adventurous lifestyle, which is why we back every pair with our 1-year warranty. But you can extend the life of your shoes—and keep them looking fresh—with regular care. Here are our tips for cleaning and reconditioning your Forsakes.

Step 1: Gently clean
With a dab of light laundry detergent and warm water, use a rag to wipe down your shoes. This should remove the majority of dirt and light stains. Avoid using aggressive soaps or detergents on your Forsakes.

Step 2: Tackle tough stains
A toothbrush with light detergent or Magic Eraser does wonders for getting rid of marks on rubber soles. For stubborn stains on your sneaker’s leather upper, we recommend Bickmore Leather Cleaner.

Step 3: Let 'em air dry
Make sure your shoes dry fully to prevent the growth of bacteria. You can remove your insoles to let them air out, too. A fan can help speed up the drying process but steer clear of the dryer and other artificial drying techniques, such as a hair dryer or oven.

Re-sealing your sneakerboots
Our waterproof styles have an internal membrane that does the heavy lifting to prevent your feet from getting wet. For extra protection, we pair this with premium waterproof leathers. Over time, you may want to refresh the outer waterproof seal to keep your Forsakes in good condition.

Please Note: Our company is committed to utilizing sustainable packaging materials, which is why your order may have arrived shrink wrapped, rather than in a traditional cardboard box. If you need to place an exchange or return, we kindly ask that you find a larger box or plastic bag to ship your shoe box(es) back to our warehouse. Unfortunately, if our shoe boxes are simply taped shut and shipped, we end up needing to re-box the damaged shipment, lessening the efficacy of our sustainability efforts. We appreciate your help!

Funds will be returned to your credit card, PayPal, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay or Afterpay account (upon receipt of the items) for its original purchase price. Shipping charges are not refundable.
