Frequently Asked Questions

Are Bokynas suitable for wide feet?

In size 9 the Bokynas are 10cm wide. If your feet are slightly wider, they would still be suitable. However, Bokynas are not suitable for very wide feet.

Are the cords adjustable?

Yes, by shifting the side cords at the heel, the Bokynas can be made narrower.

With time, do the cords get longer?

No, the cords do not stretch or get bigger with wear. They also do not shrink. The cords on the Bokynas keep their shape.

How thick is the sole?

The sole is 0.8 inch or 2 cm thick at the back of the heel and 0.4 inch or 1 cm thick at the front.  

Are they suitable for long walks?

Absolutely! Bokynas are comfortable to wear even on long distances. The cords are very soft and do not rub. The sole is flexible and there is a contour on the sole which provides good grip.

Do I have a good grip in the Bokynas?

Bokynas are true to size, choose your regular shoe size. 

If you have between two sizes we recommend to choose the larger shoe size.

The lengths in the size chart refer to the length of the sole, not the length of your feet.
