Folks, Firstly - sorry to start another thread, but I haven't found an alternative thread which deals with this issue specifically and in detail. I've just started out (did a training day last Sat and have Q-Ride this Sun) and I wore a pair of RM Williams dress boots that are super wide (4EEEE 10.5's). After just 6 hours on the bike - they're pretty stuffed and I know they won't offer any protection or last in the event of an off. Today I went to a couple of stores here in Brisbane to look at boots - I tried Alpinestars, Dri-Rider and Sidi in 10.5, 11, 11.5 and 12's - but nothing seemed to fit right. (Usually too tight in width, or too long). :nopity: I'm basically thinking about getting a pair of military boots (probably Bates or Magnum). Waddya reckon - should I go with military boots - or just try and jam my giant foot into an off the shelf boot and be done with it? Cheers, G.
