In general, brands like K2, Vans, 32 are wider so you should prob avoid those.
Vans are far from wider. They were my go to time and again for narrow boots. BFB, Cirro, and the Andreas. Like I said above, good for narrow ankles.

If you say so. I've had a new pair of boots every season for the past 6 years. Every pre-season I go to 3-4 local shops and try on everything in the medium and stiff categories. Brand new models/brands, old models (just in case anything changed) and in +/- 1/2 sizes. I'm referring to width of the toebox though, not the heel.

No, Vans are only "average" width in the heel (not wide... but not really narrow either). I also try a lot of boots/brands each year. A couple of shops guys keep recommending Vans to me as being narrow... but I never found the Vans to be that good. Either none of them actually have narrow feet, or they just aren't aware of Nitro boots (or both).

Anyone know if Salomon F3.0 or F2.0 are made for narrow feet? People here are recommending Salomons so I'm thinking of going to them next..

I'm coming from a Nike ZF1 that I've used for 2 seasons and I'm starting to make deeper toe turns that are starting to lift my heels pretty badly. Problem for me is one foot is a half size bigger than the other, so whatever boot I get one foot will not fit for sure.

So 2014, been waiting a YEAR to try the new Supreme (now called Moxie)
Salomon seriously need to fix their sizing, not only can you not go by the sizes, the cm seem to be out of whack.
I am a 37eu 6US in regular shoes 22.9cm I was in a size FOUR boot and only just touching the ends. JUST.

I need a 3 which would be perfect but they dont make a 3 because its a ridiculously small number and would probably confuse customers further.
Aside from that the heel lock is great and people who have larger feet rejoice.
As for me, Ill be stuck in my boots that aren't quite right after trying many brands and doctoring what I have


Booooo so dissappointed on what should have been a perfect union
-girl with small narrow feet and not much in the way of an Achilles....
