Size 8.5 boots on a 25.8mm wide board????
 
Wud a size 8.5 boot be too small for mid wide board (25.8mm)?

conventionally yes. unconventionally, if want to ride that way go right ahead :)

its really your feet that matter not the boot. Your feet should at least span edge to edge at the inserts, best if they hang over a little bit. This is so you can apply adequate torque to controll the board. that beeing said if you have abnormally small feet you shoud still get a board with a waist and length appropriate for your wieght.

hey thanks for the reply, i tried what you suggested. i placed my bare foot at the inserts, and they fit flush at the width of the board. no over hang for my bare foot though =S ,

I ride a 258 width board with 7.5 length feet.

Works fine for me.
