  • The history of the monkey boot goes back a fair way; to WW2 in fact when they were worn by the Czechoslovak army. In more recent times the boots were adopted by Carpenters and Roofers, the unique toe cap design enables work to be carried out comfortably in a kneeling position.  The boot is still today a popular style amongst British subcultures.
  • The problem with monkey boots is that they are extremely hard to get hold of. Never to be seen in a high street shoe shop, they are only ever found up side streets in cluttered army surplus stores. These are the original monkey boot sold over decades and can happily be called "our BEST sellers". Get with the trend and treat yourself to an all time classic by buying monkey boots.

A:Yes..The Wine & Black have been fixed but can be easily removed & the Grey is not fixed so is easier to remove for any custom made insole that you may prefer to use..
Q: Could you please tell me what the interior length of a size 5 monkey boot is.
A: The interior sole measures 25 cm/10 inches.
Q: I am disabled with above the knee amputation. I have seen hundreds of boots for the last couple of weeks, I have made enquiries about the boots that I am interested in, the weight of the boot for my own comfort as the prosthetic leg weighs a stone in weight. And the right size of boot for my comfort and safety, the sole has to be flat, my natural foot is 28cms long while my false foot is 26.6cms long. This is a genuine request.
A: The interior length of a size 9 Monkey Boot is approx 28cm, and the weight of one size 9 boot is approx 450g. The sole is relatively flat but with a deep grip.
Q.Are there any songs featuring this iconic boot ?

How to find the right shoe size

sizechart, sizeguide

A) - TRACE YOUR FEET: Take off your socks, place a piece of paper on the floor, and place your foot on it. Now use a pen to trace the shape of the foot. Hold the pen exactly upright. Important: Both feet must be measured, as they are often of different lengths! We recommend taking the measurement in the evening because feet often swell during the day.

B) - MEASURE YOUR FOOT LENGTH: Measure the length of the foot shape you drew from the heel to the longest toe. You can trace two horizontal lines on the sheet at the heel and toe level to help you with the measurement. Use your longer foot as a guidance.

C) - TIPS:

 

  • Shoes sizes are not standardized between brands globally, thus only your personal foot measurement will guide you to the correct size.
  • We calculated the standard allowance of 10-15mm into our foot length recommendation. If you would like to wear very thick socks, please measure your foot with these socks on to get the extra space needed in the shoe.

Monkey Boot!

Undeniably unique and classic. My first pair were in black, when I was in high school 30-sum years ago. I’m nostalgic and I was so excited to find these again (not easy on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean), in all their original style glory—tractor tire wedge soul, and everything down to the stitching! The wine color is a great neutral and the tartan lining in the heel is a sweet touch. They are a dream to stomp around in all day long. Mayors is keeping it real by carrying the original Grafters! I think I need them in black too.

Well made, comfortable and a little different.

Very pleased with my purchase. Look like they can take some punishment but surprisingly comfortable straight from the box. Cutting out the middle man by purchasing direct from the Mayors website was as quick and easy as Amazon. Have to dock 1 star for the unnecessary and meaningless "iconic" advertising hype though.
