Moto Boots for Wide Feet

I stopped by a local shop near me & it seems that the larger vendors, Sidi, A-Star, etc don't make wide width moto boots.

I used to have a D / E width foot & fit into most shoes (Never Sidi's BTW) I had a pair of Oxtars (now TCX) that were great, but post cage accident, my one foot is wider due to metal & daily swelling.

Does any one know of a brand that has wider boots?- just looking for a just above the ankle boot, prefer waterproof, but don't need it to be.

I wear a 11.5 or 12. I think I'm a 47 in Euro.

I have duck feet. Usually take a EEE or EEEE width.

I am currently wearing Fox Comp-5 boots. Plenty of width, but I did have to move up from my normal size 13 to size 15.

The 15's are just right in length as well...not sure what is up with some of the funky boot sizing these days.

My feet are perfectly scaled to the rest of me....


....and yeah, I saw the low boot thingy afterwards...but, sometimes the only thing that fits are clown shoes, so we wear what we have to.

I'm a size 13 EEE, found that Gaerne boots run wider than others and are top quality.
Axo boots, though not very popular, also run wide and are well built.
Here's me with the AXO's. zoom in and you can see the width of the toe box area..

Don't even consider Sidi. I have regular to a bit wide feet and wore Sidi Adventure for a long time. When I replaced it for A* Toucans it felt like I had pulled a splinter out of my ass.

I have 4E feet. I have tourmaster solution WP 2 nice and wide, nice and comfy, seem to be waterproof for my use, I do not ride days in the rain. Not a high protection Boot, some here will get bent about that. They are pretty decent, way better than just a hiking boot.

I have size 48 4EEE wide feet. My gear closet has 3 pairs of Gaerne boots. They fit better than anything else.

edit: Panorama street, G Adventure, and SG10 off road boots

EE feet here as well. Sidi boots are too narrow, but TCX fit fine. Note to OP: After recovering from surgery to fix my busted ankle (large piece of metal and seven screws), neither of my right boots would fit, no way, no how. I found a local leather and saddlery shop and explained the problem. The old guy looked it over and produced a medieval-looking "boot stretcher" gadget and fitted it into my zipped-up boots, then tightened various screws and attachments. Two days later, he called and they fit fine. Cost me twenty bucks.

Thanks all

I'm leaning towards the Gaerne Impluse - I see em on Amazon for less than $150.

I will order shortly after saving some $.

I will let ya'll know how they work.
