Store Bjørn Kodiak

Ursa Major, also known as the Great Bear, is a constellation in the Northern sky, whose associated mythology dates back into prehistory. As a symbol of the north, strength and longevity, but also man’s connection to nature, it encapsulates our ambitions for making the ultimate pair of heavy duty mountain boots.

Store Bjørn is for demanding mountain climbers and hikers carrying heavy loads. Stable, reliable and breathable they are ideal for those long expeditions. Every part is chosen for optimum performance, long life and repairability. 

Starting with the one piece upper, we chose the famous 4.0mm Gallo Juchten® vegetable tanned leather from the Swiss tanner Gallusser, probably the best and most expensive leather for mountain boots available. The construction is traditional triple stitched Norwegian welt, the ultimate construction for weather protection, stability and strength. Memory foam in the tongue and around the ankles ensures comfort and protection, while the Vibram Montagna provides great grip and stability. Store Bjørn is available in half sizes to ensure a perfect fit.

Repairable ad infinitum, Store Bjørn and Lille Bjørn is made to last for generations.

When purchasing boots, particularly online, it’s a good idea to have all your measurements squared away—the last thing you want are ill-fitting boots that makes you miserable! While keeping in mind that the width of the boot last and the volume of the boot are important factors in correctly sizing your boots, figuring out your Mondopoint size is a good first step.
It’s easy! Stand on top of a piece paper with your heel against a wall and all of your weight pressed down upon the foot you are measuring. Then, draw a line at your big toe. Measure (in centimeters) the length of the paper to the line, and voilà! That’s your Mondopoint size. You’ll need to measure both feet, as they seldom are equal.
Our measurements are made from inside the boot so you have to add 10 - 20mm to your measurements to find the size. 

Choosing the right size for your long lasting friendship is essential to get the experience. Below presented the different sizes for the different product categories.
