1. The question really isn't wide vs regular because not all wide boards are made equal. You should really look at the waist width listed for the board because they can differ quite a bit from board to board. So you want to see how long your boots are compared to the actual waist width to determine if you think the board is wide enough.
2. Why do you want a regular board so bad? These days, they make wide boards really well and there is very little, if any difference in performance between wide and regular. Plus, with your big feet, you'll have plenty of leverage on each edge to get plenty of responsiveness from the board.
So, with that said, with size 13 boots you should really consider a board with a waist width of at least 260mm. That will likely be labled as a wide, but not always. My TRice 161.5 has a 260 waist and isn't labled wide.
