Hey Stoned,

It is very common to have different sized feet, so you're not alone there. Small differences can be made up for with heat moldable liners or custom footbeds. The bigger the size difference, the worse this works. One US shoe size is approximately 1 cm. That is more than can be made up for well using the methods above (although it can be, and often is done). You will be better off buying a second pair of boots. There are a lot of great mid price boots available these days that will make that less painful on the wallet. Good custom footbeds will cost you as much and will never work as well as having the whole boot fit perfectly (rather than just the footbed).

Some general boot fit info:

How would he end up with 2 pairs of boots? Wouldn't the "second" set be made up of the opposite (wrong) sizes?

Fair point

You can also drop some emails to retailers. It is not unusual for us to end up with mismatched pairs and we can often set you up at no extra charge. Retailers can also just hook you up and then work it out with their manufacturers on this to stoke out a good customer.

i like the idea of emailing and asking a retailer... even if the boot is marked etc and not for sale they could offer me it at discount price.

it just makes it more difficult as my left foot is a whole size bigger than my right foot

What is the size of each of your feet?

Please measure 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).
