also, only get a wide if u actually need it (sz 12US+).. im a size 12 and still try to avoid riding wides, i find them much harder to turn and throw around compared to my mid wides. a wide board wont necessarily make it more stable and if u dont have a big foot it will just mean more work to go from edge to edge.
Ah, yes... I forgot about that. I'll scale the size down then.

And I wear a size 12 boot, but my DC's are quite bulky. I could probably buy slimmer profile boots, but these are only a year old... plus, my toes are cramped with thick socks so I might go up a size next pair.

(I've never seen a "mid-wide" board, either...)
