Did I make a mistake on getting the Revolver

I have ordered a Never Summer Revolver. I have size 11 boots and I ride 15/-15, with probably the widest stance possible. Should I have gotten the Evo? I ordered a 153 Revolver, if I were to cancel the order I would want a 151 evo. What do you think?

151 Evo would probably be to narrow

So then your boots would technically wash out as 10'S or 10 1/2's on the board? Sounds like you may have been able to go with the Evo, Some people actually like the Revolver though simply for it's fatness. I guess with more board surface landing jumps, doing pipe and hitting jibs a bit easier I've heard if your borderline boot size.

Screw it. You'll be fine. You were on the borderline of needing the Evo or the Revolver. If you'd gotten the Evo, you may have had heel/toe drag. You definitely won't with the Revolver.

Don't mind fuck yourself.

I would say get the Revolver because those boots won't make it thru the season anyways

If you had normal boots you wouldn't be thinking twice about getting a wide. If you need new boots you won't be stuck with small footprint boots. Your foot is large enough to handle a wide no problem so don't worry about.
