Split Sizing Now Available
Have you struggled finding shoes for your differently sized feet? According to industry research, "roughly 60 percent of adults have one foot that is bigger than the other" (antoniasaintny.com). SOM Footwear has you covered with Made in America, zero drop shoes to strengthen mismatched feet one step at a time.
For an additional fee, Norwood Classic and Urban Trekker Sepia models are available for split sizes (no other models can be split).
Because split sizing is a made-to-order, custom service, it is NOT RETURNABLE or EXCHANGEABLE. Ordering the right sizes is very important, so please review our sizing page before considering this service.
To learn more about how to order this unique option, click here to go to the Split Sizing Product Page.
Check out what recent fans of SOM are saying, and if you have a chance, leaving a review not only lets us hear from you, but your feedback helps reach new customers as well:
"Your shoes are a blessing to my feet and knees! It's never felt so joyful to run as the two years I've been in SOMs." -J.P. of Tuscon, AZ September 2022
"SOM customer for life. Living in Brooklyn at the time, I walked constantly on concrete sidewalks. I climbed snow covered mountains in Colorado (not necessarily recommended. I traveled, danced, and hiked. I squeezed just about all the life I could out of them. My last comment will be on their customer service. Companies that go above and beyond as SOM Footwear does are far and few between. All of my experiences with them have been fantastic." -T.H. of Broomfield, CO, September 2022
“I just spent 12 days in Glacier National and Waterton Lakes Parks hiking up and down rocky mountain trails, around lakes, along rivers, and through meadows. Sometimes we even went into town. My feet stayed comfortable, dry and cool in my new SOMs, right out of the box. Thank you to the folks who made my shoes and designed my shoes. I am happy to support your business.” -M.B. of Reston, VA, September 2022
We use our blog to elaborate on questions we receive on a regular basis. Many conversations inspire us to delve deeper into specific topics. Below is a list of our most recent posts. You can find the complete list here.
Thank you for reaching out to us. While customers have reported their SOMs taking them on hikes up and down mountains, we do not want to add additional weight or stiffness to the soles and bodies of our shoes, which many hiking boots utilize. We strive to find that perfect middle ground between footwear that provides protection, but does not prevent feet from moving naturally, like they were barefoot.
Have you considered making hiking boots? My Salomon hiking boots have holes in them after just 4 years of use. I am sure you would create better quality boots.
You guys are just plain awesome. I’m so happy at where SOM has gone. Keep up the good work
