These boots are sold in US men’s sizes, so you can choose the size you normally wear in street shoes/boots. I would say these are a standard width (“D” width) boot. The side buckles have a wide range of adjustability, which should work for most anybody.
Our Two Cents
This is one tough pair of boots! These things look like they are ready for any conditions and any kind of riding, especially the adventurous type. A full waterproof membrane is incorporated in the construction of these boots, which should keep your feet dry in all but the deepest of water crossings (deepest I dare attempt, anyway). The Scout boots also have reinforced areas in the toe box, at the heel, and for the ankles and shins. Alpinestars has used an innovative way of keeping these boots flexible, too. The ankle protectors that are injected into these boots vary in density, so it’s hard where it needs to be, and softer where flex is important. The cam buckle system in these boots is easy to operate and adjust, and provides for a nice, snug fit. The top portion of the boots are secured with Velcro. The soles of the Scout boots are a nice, grippy rubber with a lugged pattern that should provide excellent grip in off road conditions. The footbed of these boots is also padded to reduce vibrations through the pegs and provide another layer of impact protection.
