depends on the board waist width, not all 'wides' are created equal.
look at 256-261 mm waist width boards

Not need for a wide. I have size 11 32s and 10.5 burtons, both work fine on a 254 waist width.

Depends on the foot print(length) of your boot too. I don't think you would need a wide. I have size 11.5 burton boots and my boards waist width is 250 mm.

I rode a friends board with a 250 waist in my 11 32s. That's about the limit for me, I'd get minor toe drag on hard carves. Probably be fine in the 10.5 burtons with reduced foot print.

Hi Reason,

Stoked that you are getting a new board. boot size is not the issue in selecting board width. Foot size is the big one.

Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

I have the same question but not following why this would not be a boot issue since the sole and padding would vary from boot brand to brand. I wear a size 12 typically and my foot size is ~29.5cm and trying to figure out if I should get a wide board or not.

Hi Debun,

29.5 is the important measurement as that is the measurement that can be used for creating leverage over the edges at your stance width and angles. The soft structures (and potentially free space) in different boots will not help with leverage.

There is no standard width in the industry that determines what is "wide" or not. What Model and size were you considering?

STOKED!
