Does anyone know who makes racing boots in wide sizing? I have been having a very hard time trying to find boots that will fit a 7 1/2 wide foot.
Those look good.spalding12 said:
I don't have a necessarily wide foot..and I love my GR-S's...am thinking very seriously about getting a second pair...my pair is a 1st generation with the previous incarnation of buckle closure....I saw a display of the new closure and it looks to be the dogs bollocks in terms of long term usability moreso!...I'll be looking for a good deal on em VERY soon!moomba said:For people with wide feet, try the Gaerne GR-S. They are awesome boots and still completely made in Italy (as opposed to Alpinestars or SIDI). I've had 3 pairs of Alpinestars and 3 pairs of SIDIs before this. I now have the Gaerne GR-S in white and they are great and very comfortable.
I also have a pair of Frey-Daytona Security EVO and while they offer incredible protection, they are not as wide as the Gaerne's and not as comfortable for me.
Sidi makes the extremely good Vertigo and the even better Vertigo Corsa. Vertigos retail for around $275, Vertigo Corsas for $395. The Corsa adds the full exoskeleton ankle brace all the way down the side of the foot and the ratcheting strap across the top of the foot to the other features found on the regular Vertigo. Plus the Corsa gets a couple of little trick bits like the carbon fiber shin plate and ceramic toe sliders. Or, you might still be able to find a few Vertebrae 2's (the predecessor to the Vertigo) from some places for a little less than the Vertigos.DukeDesmo said:Those look good.
Are there different models of this boot? as I've seen them advertised as just Vertigo (not Vertigo Corsa), and considerably cheaper than $395, is this the same boot or similar with a different spec, as I'm now in the market for some new boots after the zipper on my A/Stars broke
