Go to a Red Wing store. They can fit almost any foot. They have decreased their selection of motorcycle boots, but you should be able to find something in the work boots that will do the job. I'm not that hard to fit, but I like the quality. I've not shopped for any for a few years, but as I said, you should be able to find something. Good Luck!

They have one boot that is 3E, but not in sizes larger than 7. Only EE in my size, 13.

I don't think you skinny feet guys really get it. There are no wide motororcycle boots out there. I've talked to webbikeworld and New Enough (motorcycle gear now). They are aware of none. You can get custom boots built in England. It requires two trips to their factory.

I wear 13-EEEEE.

I have wide feet too, not as wide as some of you guys, but enough that I understand the problem...

I had tour master solutions and they were okay, but they leaked so I returned them... Now I have the alpinestar alphas and they are a little snug but are breaking in nicely... They are almost as wide as the solution was at first...

I feel your pain

Fwiw I wear a 10.5 EEE

I tried 4 different sizes, both the tall version and the shorter one. No go.

The Ariats only come up to EE width.

Default Pay Attention, Guys

These are the ONLY truly wide boots you will find in the USA:

I just checked with the guys on the Valkyrie board(we have some big guys there) and Red Wings were mentioned a couple of times. I told them you had already tried there but one guy came back & said Red Wings go up to a width of "H". Again, "Good Luck".

Thanks for checking, but what the H is H?

Here's the latest response from the Valkyrie Board:

I have 14 EEEEE feet and I have found a good selection at Mason's shoes. They have all styles and kinds in the size he needs. I got tennies and boots both from them, and they are true to size, and look half way decent. Most shoe manufacturers think guys with big feet have no style and make about as simple as they can.
