ok stupid question that will probably get moved but think it fits here in this topic. custom boots with taller souls. Not 1970's pimp tall mind you.......... but an inch? Might need to customize gear shift lever to get your toe under it but would allow someone to get closer to doing a flat foot. Besides.......... if you really do adventure bike road which includes ruts, water crossings etc. then taller boot might be better than loss of ground clearance via a lowered bike. Also can't lowering the bike change the manoeuvrability for the worse? Some research found this but from a VERY old thread. More options may be out there now? "
