I have Alpinestars feet and like their race boot and street boots. I wear the 48's for my size 13.5 USA feet.  I am 49 in most other brands.
Sidi motorcycle boots and bicycle shoes are way to narrow for me.

I love Sidi boots as far as construction quality and features but as I mentioned in an earlier post my legs are barely alpine, Sidi is just no way in hell. Shame...

Never owned a pair of bike boots since I bought my first bike in 1976.

For Sports Touring my go to boot is the BMW All-round boot. Winter it is the Daytona Road Star GTX and Summer Danner Reckoning. Been wearing them for years. Best,

98% of boots I try on will not hold my heel properly in place. My test is that I must be able to walk all day in the boots and still be comfortable. My current boots include one good boot and one amazing boot:

Good Boot: Alpinestars S-MX Plus 2012 Gore-Tex Racing Boots Black for track. I used up one pair. Bought a second and third pair (still have one extra pair new in box for when 2nd pair is used up). The inner pull lace system works well to hold my heel in place.

Amazing Boot: REV'IT! Discovery OutDry Boots (they also have shorter and a taller versions). The Boa ratchet lacing system is amazing at properly and snugly holding my whole foot and heel in place.

Have you tried walking in Memphis?  (Or are you in NC)

My goal any time I'm near Memphis is to get from the Ozark mountains to the Smoky mountains or visa versa as fast as possible. (Yes, I live in NC, western NC that is,  aka, motorcycle paradise).

Very good. I seldom memorize song names and artists, but I do like this song.  :046:
