    Default Shoe Size and Deck Width

    What size shoe do you wear and what deck width do you skate?

    I'm size 12 and skate 7.75" I think I might step up to 8" due to over flipping the board in the majority of my flip tricks and toe/heel touch.

    I wear size 11, but I also weigh 210lbs. So, I'm more comfortable on a wider board. I ride an 8.25". My flip tricks just took a little while to adjust to the width, but now it doesn't take any more effort than a narrower board.

    It's preferrence. I'm size 8 according to my new lakai's. I ride a 7.76" deck. Of course the bigger your feet the wider you want your board to be. But, if you like skinny boards, go for it.
