Foot boards

Looking at the rider footboard at A&S , do these foot boards sit parallel to the ground or are they angled forward toe lower than heel ? I am 6-1 and size 12 , now my feet are angled toe down for a comfort ride , would like foot boards but if they are not a comfortable acc . Then I would pass , and they aren't cheap !
Thanks all !

Look up Darius floorboards at( www.dodk64);I really like them ; my wife does too for the passenger;and yes the toes do angle down and they about half the price.

Re: Foot boards

Darius' footboards do have the angle, as well as dropping them down and forward for those of us with long legs - plus I like his prices!
