Finding narrow boots

I cannot find B width motorcycle boots anywhere. All boots in the shops are D width. I am getting tired of hearing "why don't you try two pair of socks?" I found one brand online that said B width but when I tried them on they were not as advertised. Any Ideas?

I share your pain, own the "Men's Tour" boot, B width, from Cruiserworks and like them. They're waterproof and may suit your needs.

Narrow boots = Narrow feet = big ??!!?

siclmn,

I have narrow feest as well, so I know what it's like trying to find a boot that doesn't feel like it's got room for another foot......

Anyway, I don't have any specific links for you, but have you tried any primarily European companies/manufacturers? I have found they tend to be a bit narrower on the foot that other brands.

My current boot is a BMW boot (my wife calls them my Star Trek boots - they kinda look like the ones that Capt. Kirk, et al. used to wear).

The next boot I may end up with is the Rev'It! one:

I'm not sure of their widths, but you may be able to talk to them about it....

Good luck!

I'm wearing the Revit Fusion, fits my narrow feet fairly well, high quality, reasonable price. Don't think they come in multiple widths though.

That is the one that I ordered. It is not a narrow boot even though it says B width. Only the toe is narrow but the heel is wide.

Finding Narrow Boots

I have an `A' width foot and spent a lot of time trying to find a boot that fit well, was very comfortable, armoured, gave maximum protection, waterproof, was cool in the summer and warm during cold weather. I've worn my Sidi Vertebra Tepor Boots for 2 years now.
(this boot is also available in a non-waterprof version) They are terrific, and still look like new. I wear a Size 9 shoe but found the 8.5 Sidi boot fit perfectly. I use shoe trees to keep them fitting properly. They are waterproof but breath and they were purchased at Cycle World here in Toronto. I did an online search and found a dealer who has good pictures and details of them.

Well I finally found some $400 Sidi boots that don't slop on my foot. They have a buckle that goes over the bridge of my foot. I must really tighten it down for it to work. The problem now is that the sole of the boot is so thin that I can't reach the ground very well so they are at the shoemaker and he is building up the sole with another inch and a half sole. They are going to look like platform boots now.
