My boots are too big!!

Recommended Posts

well i used to have a dirtbike about a year ago (crf250r) and after having it for a few days i realized i needed some good boots. so i ordered some sg10s. Well in the week or so that it took the boots to get to my house i tore and stretched the tendons in my s.i. joint playing basketball. so when i got the boots riding was the last thing on my mind. i couldnt do anything for around 12 weeks, and all i wanted to do was get healed so i could get better for aau basketball. During that 12 weeks i sold my bike and forgot about the boots. Well now a year later i bought a used yz 125 to mess around on and i remembered i had bought some sg 10s. However when i tried them on i realized they were WAY to big. they are size 13s and i guess the reason that i ordered them that big was because the shoes i wore when i ordered them were size 13s. However i have since found out that those shoes were freakishly small 13s and that i really wear somewhere between a 11-12. so i have been trying to find ways to make them work and im stumped. i have put in some bigger insole insert things, I have tried wearing up to 3 pairs or socks and their still to big. When i say there to big i mean that there is alot of room in the toe box between the end of my toes and the end of the boots. Therefore when i try to ride i have alot of trouble geting my foot under the shifter and a big problem with locking up the rear brake by accident, i guess because empty boot is pressing down on it. Im guessing i cant return them because i bought them over a year ago and i dont know if i have the reciept still. I thought for a while that they might improve after i broke them in but they havent so far. I also heard that sg10s pretty much always feel the same even after you brake them in. What do you guys think i should do, try to sell them? Anyone wanna trade their too small boots? lol. I have only rode in them for like roughly two hours if that.

sorry for such a long post guys but i needed to vent. I need to get some boots so that i can protect my feet when i ride!

Put em on eBay and sell them, take the money and buy something that fits. You really need someone to tell you to do this?

Kinda off-topic... But how do you like the 125 over the 250F?

well i didnt really get enough seat time on my crf to get 100% comfortable on it but heres how i would say how they compare.

CRF250R

Pros

-Felt faster in the low to mid range, about the same on top. Could be lugged around. Great handling.

Cons

-Feels Heavier than 125, more expensive if something went wrong, had to worry about valves and burning oil.

YZ125

Pros

-feels very light, fun two stroke power, great handling, seems to be reliable (other than fouling a couple plugs), much cheaper to buy and maintain.

Cons

-not as fast as 250fs, cant be lugged around like a fourstroke, have to premix gas (which doesnt bother me but it does some people),

So since i just ride for fun i think that the 125 is a better fit for me. However, if i had the money to keep up a 250f, or i was a racer, that is probabley what i would have.

anyone have any idea for what i should ask for the sg 10s. They probably dont even have two hours on them.

stuff tissue paper in the toes and use inserts to take up the room. Too big is better than too small
