Q. What is the difference in sizing for women's and men’s footwear?
Our shoes are based on a unisex last. To deliver the best fit and performance, our last shape is wider at the forefoot to allow the metatarsals to flex / do their work, and dialed in at midfoot and the heel.
norda's can easily be converted between men's and women's sizes:
W8.5 = M7, W9 = M7.5, W9.5 = M8, W10 = M8.5, W10.5 = M9, W11 = M9.5
M7 = W8.5, M7.5 = W9, M8 = W9.5, M8.5 = W10, M9 = W10.5, M9.5 = W11

Q. How long will my norda™ shoes last?
It depends on how hard you are on your shoes, and the conditions you play in. Every individual has different expectations for their shoes. norda’s are tested on the trails and also in lab settings. As a general rule, shoes should last a year and should be replaced every 700km (500 miles).
Q. What is Dyneema® and why is it important for the norda™ 001?
Dyneema® is the world’s strongest and lightest fibre™. On a weight for weight basis, it is up to 15x stronger than steel, and 40% stronger than other aramid fibres. As well as its extraordinary strength, Dyneema® excels in cut and abrasion resistance and has a high resistance to chemicals and UV. Dyneema® fiber is so light that it floats on water.
The norda™ 001 uses bio-based Dyneema® fiber, to provide the ultimate combination of strength, durability, lightweight and sustainability.

Q. How do I care for my norda™ shoes
It’s totally normal that your shoes will get dirty, especially if you take them on the trails! It’s best to remove the insole to allow for faster drying. Washing by hand with light soap and cold water yields the best results. We do NOT recommend using washing machines or hot water, and definitely do NOT expose the shoes to high heat which will damage the components of the shoes.

Performance & Sustainability
Q. What are norda shoes made of?
Our sustainability mission is to get the best performance out of the world’s best materials while leaving the lightest footprint possible. We are obsessed by durability over disposability. And we are constantly optimizing our packaging, shipping, sourcing and manufacturing options because innovation matters here too.
The entire main woven upper of our shoes is made with bio-based Dyneema® fibre, the world’s strongest and lightest fibre™. The materials are made in Europe - both the supplier and the actual material are Bluesign® certified.
The norda™ shoe laces are also made with bio-based Dyneema® fibre, and recycled polyester.
Our packaging is 100% FSC® certified recycled sourced, and made with 100% craft paper and white aqueous based ink; therefore it is 100% recyclable again. Boxes made with multiple colours of ink are pretty, but they are not fully recyclable.
Each pair of the norda™ 001 comes with a reusable nylon “marathon style” carrying bag, so you can transport your shoes and protect them.
