Making sure that your shoe fits you well.
Every foot is very individual. This is true not only for the foot's length but also for its width. About half of all human beings (50%) have feet of average width, 45% have extra-wide feet and 5% have narrow ones.
Which Baak series for what type of foot?
For normal-width feet: all Baak series
In all series, you will find shoes that are suitable for normal-width feet. Shoes of the widths 11 (N), 11+ and 12 offer an excellent fit for those feet. The individual adjustment is done through the lacing, the quick-release fastener or the hook-and-loop fastener.
For normal-width and extra-wide feet – the Baak Industrial go&relax series
The models of this series offer individual fits for normal-width and extra-wide feet. Here, Baak uses the real two-width system: Each width has its own special sole shape, its own last and its own toe protection cap shape. This is the only way to ensure that the foot always rests on the sole optimally. Width N = normal = Width 11 / Width XW = extra-wide = Width 13
As the shape of slimmer and wider feet is not the same, two different lasts ensure the perfect fit for each type of foot. With the 8 mm wider toe protection cap (difference from Width N at Size 42), even relatively wide feet are given enough space for their toes.
For all feet – the Baak Unity series
The unique Baak® multi-width system of the Baak Unity series offers individual width adjustment in the width range from 10 to 14 with only one shoe. How is that possible? It's quite simple: The Baak Unity models actually consist of two shoes, an inner and an outer one.
The "inner" shoe consists of an extremely elastic Baak flex mesh material, the sock shaft. It adjusts individually to your foot and to its width and shape. The necessary stability is given by the six stabilizing straps of the "outer" shoe. Baak Unity – the genius in fits. The custom shoe that you can buy off the rack.
General fitting info
The fitting of a shoe is determined significantly on its length and width. The shoe length depends on the foot length of course, plus roll-off addition. While rolling the foot, the inner shoe part shortens in relation to the foot, so it is necessary to put some more space to the last. Baak shoes contain a length addition of 12 mm, which avoids bouncing against the toe cap while rolling off.
A - B = absolute board length = foot sole length + addition
A - D = foot length
B - D = roll-off addition
