I wear a 15. There literally are NOT widths in motorcycle boots in size 15.
sure, wear whatever you want. It's your foot.
I'll wear ill-fitting (for walking) boots on my motorcycle any day knowing the stress I've put on the boots that I wear from stuff hitting them and bikes falling over.
It's not about being uncomfortable to walk it. It's about the simple act of wearing them causing me extreme pain. I have an extra bone in my foot. This bone is pressed very close to the skin in my left foot. The pain of something pushing almost directly against bone is severe. After showing my hiking boots to MSF instructors and experienced riders, I feel ok with wearing them for the time being, and will save up for custom boots.
