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.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

I ride a 258 width board with 7.5 length feet.

Works fine for me.
