Bottom Line

Choosing the right motorcycle boot is an important factor for a safe ride. You should feel comfortable in your boot to be in 100% control in any kind of situation. Accordingly, the boot must accommodate your entire foot completely. Starting from the toes, ankles and calves, the entire boot should wrap around your foot completely for best protection. The fitting should not be too tight, as long riding hours can become torturous, neither they should be too loose; else they might fall in case of an impact.

The width of the left and the right foot generally varies from person to person. In general, right-handed people have their right feet a little wider (and vice versa). The wider foot always determines your ideal shoe width. However, it should be noted that shoe widths can vary depending on the manufacturer and model. So, despite correctly calculated shoe width, it can happen that a selected shoe model is too big or too small for you. It is best to look at the size chart of the individual brand before shortlisting one. Good luck!
