Question

Do any of you guys know of any boot manufacturers that make them in wide sizes???

I wear a size 12 shoe, but my width is a 4E. So I need something in a wider version or I can't wear them. Also I'm not gonna spend $200 on a pair of boots that don't fit.
I thought maybe I could go to a Shoe Repair Technician and get them stretched out, but I don't think it would work and that would be an absolute last resort.
Any Ideas??


You know...I have this same problem with condoms

I'd have to recommend the "Lollipop Toe Full 17" Hi-Top."

Perhaps in a checker pattern to match the color of your bike!

I wonder if they make those in a carbon-kevlar?

Ok, so all kidding aside, what's out there for those of us restricted to using New Balance for our daily shoes when it comes to motorcycling ankle protection?

I wear a 12 3E, or a 13E, but, I fit perfectly into Alpine stars SMX boots. They took about a day of wearing to stretch, but after that, they fit absolutely perfectly. I forget what size I have, and I don't have the boots near me at the moment, so I can't check.

Check up on Danner boots I am sure they are on the 'net. I have a 10.5 D width & they made the 'Fort Lewis' boot to that size. True it is not a racing boot, but was built for jumpers in the Armed forces. In fact of all the gear a certain Rec Brigrade in France wear, even with some of the best boot makers in Italy, Switzerland, Germany & France, they only used one American product being the Danner 'Fort Lewis' boot.
Some of the climbing boot people come out with a well protected high ankle sneakers for light mountaineering. I have a set made by Hi-Tec & this was the lst called 50 Peaks as they were tested by one climber that went up 50 peaks to pass them off as being satisfactory. Believe it has been named differently since, but it is made so well that I have woren it for past 7 yrs. Yes it has a LOT of protection & padding around the ankle area.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
