Wide load....

Hi All! It worked.... finally!

Well not really a wide load.. but a wide question none the less... Need some of your expert advice please?

I have some ladies Alpinestar boots (which i love), they fit great with my existing leathers and are very comfy... Only problem now is I have purchased a new racing 2 piece.. it has a section of shin padding and a bulky zip and I can no longer get the boots to do up! Sad

I've had a quick look around at boots on the market for a wider calf.. but thought I would see if anyone has any advice before I spend a load of money on a new pair!? Anyone had a similar problem?

Couple of things to try

1. There used to be a product called leather stretch, or something like that, which you could spray on shoes, boots etc and it would help them stretch to fit.

2. Is the shin padding removable - I know on my Wolf leathers that the padding is just velcroed onto the suit, so you may be able to just remove it as it is a bit of overkill having shin padding and shin high boots :)


Hope that helps some

Can't say as I have Claire,

You can buy boot extenders that will stretch the leg part of boots but not sure how this would compromise the safety of the boot zip, I have used the spray on stretch stuff on a normal pair of boots and wasn't overly impressed, the only other thing to try is fill the boots with damp newspaper and leave it in for a few days.

from your local saddlery softens / stretches leather. Not cheap but good.


My calves aren't the smallest - I use HG Cyko (is that sicko or psycho?) boots. Not the best but they do fit.
