Choose the size you normally wear in a men’s shoe. The width is considered “D” or “normal”. I found the boots to fit fine in my normal size. The toe design of these boots is round and the ball area is generous, so if you are sometimes between sizes, you’d probably be OK with the smaller.
Our Two Cents
The Latigo Waterproof Road Race Boot will give you good service in a variety of situations. Of course it is a race boot style, so they are designed for racing or very aggressive street riding. They have a definite forward cant and a thin sole profile to facilitate shifting a sport/race bike in a tuck position (great for said purpose but not so great for bopping around the mall). Sport street riders will appreciate the waterproof liner if they find themselves in wet weather occasionally. This boot offers all the basic features you’ll need on the track. The boot has solid protectors in the ankle and shin areas (the shin guard is especially sturdy feeling). And there are also stiffeners incorporated into the toe shift area and heel cup. The inside of the boots is very comfortable. They are lined with a lightly padded breathable material and the boots come with removable inserts in the foot bed which are also very comfortable. Since they are removable, you have the option to replace them if you like. Like most other race boots of this type, they are about 13” tall overall. The boots close with a zipper about 2/3 of the way up and there is a large Velcro closure at the top to allow for some adjustability over the calf area. The waterproof liner is incorporated in the boot opening, so they’ll keep water out almost to the full height of the boot. The boots have a great style and value. Of course they don’t have all the fancy features of the Sidi and Alpinestar boots, but they aren’t $300 (or more) either.
