Finding your size
How to determine your shoe size:
- Put on hiking socks
- Place the back of your heel against a wall
- Measure the length of your foot
- Check measurement against the size chart. Done!
Note: if you choose to upsize, the boot may be too big and you may need to wear an extra pair of socks.

BUILT FOR PACK CARRYING
Rucksack loaded? Ready to go? You’re a step ahead in ONE PLANET footwear. Designed for comfort when pack carrying, using a tried-and-tested combination of light but rigid shank, structured heel cup, multi-density footbed and grippy Vibram sole. We’ve removed excess flex and crafted our boots for an in-motion transfer of energy from heel to forefoot. Allowing a natural gait, efficient weight transfer and reduced fatigue over time.
Bushwalkers know that gaiters are essential: there are snakes on sunny tracks, windblown sand, deep snow, mud and grassy plains to tackle. ONE PLANET footwear is built to work with gaiters. There are under-arch gaps in the Vibram soles to allow secure fitting of gaiter straps, reducing wear by minimising contact between the under-boot strap and the ground. The lower lace section is the perfect home for your gaiter’s front hook.
TWO PART WATERPROOFING
ONE PLANET boots and shoes take a dual approach to managing moisture and all-weather comfort. The upper materials are selected for their resistance to weather, ability to be repeatedly reproofed, and superb durability and lifespan. The inner is lined with our Synapse® breathable/waterproof membrane, helping to keep weather out while maintaining happy feet.
TRUST THE GRIP!
Vibram soles have a well-deserved reputation for reliable grip, high-quality construction and durability. After a 1935 accident in the Italian Alps, Vitale Bramani (Vibram – get it?) developed an innovative sole using rubber lugs that he called ‘carrarmato’, meaning ‘tank tread’. We choose Vibram for their integrity and proven ability to construct soles with long-lasting, grippy tread.
LACING AND FITTING
ONE PLANET boots use a dual-tension lacing system that allows the lower and upper half to be laced according to personal preference. To this end, we combine tongue padding and our tongue lace-shield with burly hooks and an easy tension system. By following our lacing instructions, each foot can have a comfortable, secure fit for joyous days on the track. Download our lacing instructions here.
Walk for hours, days, weeks – repeat, through endurance we conquer. Built from the ground up, every component of our footwear is selected with purpose in mind, from the industry-leading Vibram soles, rigid shanks, hard-wearing uppers and ‘bullbar protection’ of our toe-caps. Designed to be easy clean, , if you look after your boots, they will look after you.
