Pfanner Santis Boots

Recommended Posts

Anyone have these boots? I’m just wondering whether they loosen up, I just took delivery of a pair size 45 which is what last pairs have been (husky technical, arbortec scafell lites meindl airstream and woodwalker), all of which were quick to settle in. The Santis are like a vice and thinkin should I bear with for couple of days or send em back?

Wore my Pilatus for a few weeks now and not eased of at all in fact they are almost crippling me pushing on the tendons just above my heel and I'm thinking of changing for something else after Christmas yet my old pfanner boots broke in in no time and were comfortable for 2 years

Cheers for that the Santis seem to be very narrow at the front and the right one pushes on the tendon above heel. I went for them because so many people have said how durable they are and the trousers are a great fit.

Fill them up with warm water, put them on and go for a five mile run. When you come back take them off and set them aside to dry. Don't stuff them full of newspaper. When they have dried out naturally they will have moulded themselves to the shape of your feet.

That's straight out of a Roald Dahl. Although I think you're supposed to fill them with sheep shit by a silver spoon at midnight for it to work properly.
