Motorcycle Boots

Does anyone know where to find larger size motorcycle boots? Looking for size 15 to 16 U.S. Most places i have checked have up to a 13 and maybe a 14 but nothing larger.

Only 6'3", but if my feet had been part of my legs then I probably would have been.

Try Sidi

Hey, Try SIDI
I am size 15 also, and i was able to find a pair on ebay about a year ago. They really rock and are super comfy. I wear them about 15 hours a day when i am in classes. I just put a set of in soles and they rock!

Thanks viperkillertt,
Looks like Sidi may be the wat to go. After going through finding the proper size the way they tell you to, I think I can get into a euro50.

I try to look at it as having a very good "under standing" on a solid "foundation".

These guys can do custom stuff. I bought the Clubman Classic several years ago and love them. <http://www.altberg.co.uk/>

Update....

Thanks for the reply's guys. I actually ended up getting the Alpinestars SMX 4's. After putting roughly 2500 miles on them i have been quite pleased.

The initial impression was "holy crap these are stiff". Before even thinking about getting on the bike with them, I spent the weekend shopping with the wife and walking countless miles through mall's, which i hate doing in the first place, they started to break in rather nicely.

The only complaint I have now is the toe slider's. The original ones were plastic, wear out quickly, yeah I know , keep your feet off the asphalt, but that is easier said than done given there size.

IMHO, I would reccomend them for a good street boot with the occasional trackday thrown in for good measure.
