You see, most boot companies use lasts that generally claim to fit most people. That’s why some half sizes don’t seem to be common, and why so many boot companies don’t seem to offer wide sizing…or, for that matter, narrow sizing.
After all, not everyone has “D” wide feet. Some are actually Es, some are as narrow as B, AA or even A, and come in all genders and sizes.
By investing in a custom pair of boots, manufacturers are working to make sure your feet fit perfectly with your steel toe boots, rather than selling the boot to a store and then selling it to you hoping your foot will fit.
A better fit means more comfort, less aches and pains, and a reduced risk of foot, calf, knee, hip and lower back problems from standing all day.
