Feet too big???!!! WTF

Can anyone tell me where to get a Joe Rocket Speedmaster Boot Size 13, BLue/Black?

Everywhere I ask, they only go to Size 12, and I'm almost a 14.

LOL, thanks.

Damn! I really want boots, and saw that someone replied. Only thing is, I was hoping the reply was HELPFUL.

For the first time I really meant it.... post whore!

This may not be true, but I seem to recall a buddy of mine who walks on a set of land barges saying that Oxtar was the only one who had boots in ocean going sizes. Hope that helps.

You could always try binding your feet. Worked for ancient China....

Really though, maybe you should lower your aesthetic standards. You're talking about leaving your bike a little scratched and banged up, so why does it matter if you have the newest, shiniest, and most expensive boots?

I have the last ones and I`m really satisfied with them.

Pretty sure 47 is like a 13 in u.s size, who knows, freak

If shoe size correlated with penis size, could you imagine the cock on a clown?




There just aren't enough "cock on a clown" jokes anymore.




Sorry about the

As the late 'Fats' Waller (jazz pianoist) would sing "But Sam your feets to big".

Know what you are going through for I was in the shoe/boots business (actually a sport shop the specialized in mountaineering & skiing equipment) & in Banff National Park in Alberta Canada I had to fit the Wardens & later on the RCMP with climbing & ski boots. Brought in up to size 15 & once it came to size 12 & up I narrowed the width. Basically if one has short feet they are wide while longer are narrower. Fortunately I was able to fit them all properly.

Some yrs ago size 9 was most common in men, but now it is size 11 with the young kids to even larger, 12 to 14, as Elvis has pointed out. I am amazed that the shoe/boot people do not realize this OR possibly the people handeling stock will only order a few in size 12 thinking so many are like themselves being size 8 or 9. I take a size 11C which does not jive with 11EEE being way to wide. Arch of the foot is another point many people do not understand.

True some men with size 6 to 6.5 can actually have a real narrow B width. So they need to pay extra to have the specific size. Like women with a AAA in Lord knows what length & when it came to skiing boots or climbing boots they had to be custom made at a ghastly price.

Looks like you are going to have to shop around & be ready to pay a high price Elvis. Sorry, but that is how life is.
