NWBoarder I have a size 13, and I ride whatever is under my feet at the time. The extra surface that a wide provides is nice, but it's not necessary. If the board you're trying to ride is ridiculously skinny, then yeah, you'll run into some problems. Otherwise, you'l be fine. Look for a mid-wide, it's a good compromise.

Boot size is only a secondary factor for appropriate board width. In general, (bare) foot size is much more important.

Hi Ksonn,

Boot sizing is highly inconsistant across brands and even models and should not be relied on. Foot length is very accurate. Foot length (along with stance width and angle) will determine the correct deck width.

Please measure your foot 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).

poutanen Usually a 12-13 would require a wide. Depends on the board but yeah...

Wide?

Hi, I am 6'1", 190lbs, and wear a size 12-13 boot. Will it be better if I get a wide or a regular?
