Vector Boots ... Sizes???

Recommended Posts

Quick question...

I normally wear size 11 1/2 for all my shoes/sneakers.

I want to buy the Vector's but can't try them on locally, so I have to buy online.

People keep telling me I should go up to size 12 at least.

However, I also called and emailed Astars... and they told me that their boots normally run from a ½ size to a full size larger than you street shoes. They would recommend a size 11.

For anyone that has the Vectors please give me some feedback as to the sizes that you wear normally and the size your Vectors are.

thanks

WOW, thats interesting..hmmm?

I wear a size 9 shoe and have been using size 10 Vectors for the last two seasons. I do wear two pairs of socks, but they seem to fit fine and are not loose? :cry:

I wear size 12 street shoes, and a size 12 Vector :cry:

I would probably go with Alpinestar's reccomendations and go up in size.

You will like the boot... they are super comfy right out of the box and hold up to abuse well. The soles have held up very well too in the year I've owned the boots.

I wear an 11, and bought an 11. They fit pretty well at first, but I ended up needing two pairs of socks after they broke in. Very comfy and unbelievably durable soles, but IMO the ankle support is weak.

The A-Stars people know what they're talking about. My feet are about 11 1/2. I wear size 12 Vectors too. The boots fit perfectly wearing regular calf high moto socks. They are awesome boots. The best quality and protection I've ever worn. BTW, I ride trail, I don't race, but do play on the track. Rocks, hardpack and logs are no match for these boots.

I wear size 11 work boots and have size 12 Vectors. They felt extremely comfortable to me, ever since I first put them on. I also wear the Thor MX socks. I have had them for about 18 months now and do not regret it at all. I trail ride about 95% of the time. I love everything about them except there is no traction on the soles for slick hills, but I doubt it would be any better with any other boots.

Actually.... AStars recommended me going DOWN to the 11's not up to 12's.

But it seems from the responses here that most people at have gone up in size...especially if they are wearing 1/2's.

thanks for the replies....i think i'll get the 12's

I usually wear 10-1/2 or 11 and I bought 11. They fit perfect. I don't double up on the socks or anything. I'm not sure that I'd drop down.

I wear size 11 to 11 1/2 street shoes. Vector boots in size 12 fit perfectly with heavy socks. Size 11 Vector boots were definitely too small.

I'm the other way around. I wear 11 1/2 street shoes, and have 11 vectors wich fit perfect when new, now I must wear heavy socks that they've broken in and stretched.

Your Vectors STRETCHED???? How can that be? I've had the same pair

for well over 2 years and they've stayed exactly the same.

Are you sure you've got size 11's? Are you sure they are A-Star Vectors?

:cry:

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
