Wiiiiide boots

Postby Scorps » Tue Jun 06, 2017 11:04 am

Say a guy wanted to spend a bit more time riding his garage queens, he'd need a new set of boots. The old Gaernes aren't looking too flash (all the cow hair has fallen off).

So if new boots are purchased, I need the widest boots known to man to fit my size 11-4E hoofers.

What should I bee looking at?

Cheers,
Ben

Alpine Stars are pretty wide. I don't know what 11-4E is.
I'm a size 11 and my foot is 114mm wide when I stand on it and they are wider than I need, but I wouldn't say they are super-wide


relax, nothing is under control

We sell Alpinestars, Forma, MOTS and Hebo boots at The Hell Team
The MOTS are the widest closely followed by Forma, then the new Alpinestars, and then the Hebo which I would call a medium fit, not a wide fit.
But all are leather uppers so will stretch across the width of the boot with wear.

I used to work as a boot fitter for R M Williams doing their high end equestrian boots when I was a lot younger.
We used to put damp rags in the forefoot area of the new riding boots about 2 hours before the customers came in for the final fitting, then we would make them wear the boots, that were now damp from the inside, for about an hour. This would basically custom shape the leather upper to their foot. Just like the original process where they steam the leather and stretch it over the wooden last to get the shape. It worked a treat, and we got some pretty "nasty" feet into some very expensive custom boots for a very comfortable fit.

Hope that helps a bit.
And Baxy is right the new shape AStar Tech T's are a squidge small than the older No Stops.
