The Traverse is a low boot that is based on our original Forager shoe. It features a 7mm sole with our ultra-grippy suction cup tread making an, approximately, 12mm stack height (including the removable insole). This moccasin inspired shoe is made with oil-tanned leather which is very supple and durable. These boots are lined with flannel to give your feet a little bit of extra warmth and comfort! Like the Forager, the Traverse has a roomy but attractive toe box. The laces make it very secure so this boot can move with you on your rugged mountain adventures or is suitable for casual use in the crisp, fall weather.
As always, our shoes are flexible, zero-drop, have a foot-shaped toe box, and are made in the USA. The leather has a short break-in period, so it is ok if they are a little snug when you first put them on. Leather is an extremely flexible and pliable material and will relax and stretch some with wear. Some people have reported that they feel tighter around the toes for a few days during this break-in time but quickly become more comfortable and allow the toes to spread naturally.
The Traverse boots tend to run small. We recommend sizing up, especially if you plan to wear them with thick socks.
Our sizing is based on standard shoe sizing and is typically true to size, however, we suggest measuring your foot and and using the shoe size chart below to determine the best size for you. Stand with your heel against a wall and place a ruler or measuring tape along your foot to measure the total distance from the wall to the longest part of your foot. If you already own a pair of Unshoes sandals, you will likely wear the same size but please check the chart to make sure.
