Looking for Lace up M/C boots

I've got such wide feet(2E) size (46euro) I 'm having a hard time finding a boot that I can get my foot into. I would love to have been able to keep the boots the wife got me for christmas (Sidi way Tepor). I don't want boots that look like I just stepped out of the Hog shop with the buckles on the side. I have been using BMW lace up ankle high boots that have been fantastic but their day has come and gone and they are no longer available. Any help here?

You might want to checkout Zappos.com. Free shipping both ways, if the ones you pick don't fit right. I saw plenty of lace-up possibilities...though most had the H-D logo on them somewhere.

Check out Red Wings. I wear model 2292 (EEE) & have been very pleased with them. A quick check indicated that this particular model isn't available in (EE) width, but they do have others thar are. Happy hunting!

Dehner has boots in that size, don't know whether any will appeal to you. They advertise patrol (motor cop), riding (horseback), and military styles.

Take them to a real boot maker and he can put in zippers with storm flaps for not much money.
I know had it done with 16" engineer boots, when I was 355lbs there was no way to get my foot down the shaft of the boot.

Cruiserworks sells lace up boots in a couple different styles and they have EE sizes. I've never own a pair myself but I have heard numerous positive testimonials from friends.

You might want to look at WestCoast boots. They are a custom boot that many in the riding community like to wear. They make lace-up boots that will work well riding your bike.

Another boot, and my favorite for work and Winter riding, are Danner boots. Both companies are Made In Oregon and of excellent quality. Good luck!

Cruiserworks are the best boots! I prefer the sidezip style easy to use and clean. Great for the office business casual look!

Wink Red Wing Steel Toe Lace Ups

Nothing Better in my opinion; the leather wears in nice and comfortable and the steel toe with solid soles are what you want when riding. Lots of good choices.

Hey Stephen, one of our English brethren turned me on to Altberg Boots made in, well, England. http://www.altberg.co.uk/Web/motorcycle1.jsp

I just love mine. I got the Microlite Clubman's, English moto cop's wear them. They were a leetle of 300 bones delivered to the door. You can send them a tracing of your foot, and I recomend a tracing of your boot, so they can build what you need. I'd think, as a purdy good size boy, that you have a "high volume" foot. Be sure to tell them that if you order from them.

I think the best part was talking to English girls. I especially liked pissing them off. Love that English accent on a lassie.

Looked at these, almost ready to order a pair to try out, then saw nothing larger than a 12.
