Years before I have a 259mm waist width and did not notice anything but it was difficult for me to manage fast turns and rotations!

A bigger waist width will increase board functionality for this size of boot?
Toe drag won't necessarily cause you to fall everytime, but it certainly isn't going to help keep you from falling. Especially on hardpack. A wider waist width will help reduce the overhang for a size 13. Having ridden both wide and standard sizes, I recommend a mid wide. That way you still get good response and better boot coverage.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
