Edit: and just so we don;t get into a whole thing about what is 'narrow' and the importance of 95 or any other number - check here:
"A study of the relationshsip between footsize and boot size in the Canadian Forces" ...,, goto page 5 for a study chart of barefoot Length VS Width - you'll see 95 is hardly on the low side of a general population...
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure that data is meaningful to boot sizes. I was under the impression that a 98mm last boot was only 98mm in a reference size. If you are smaller or larger than the reference size, the last isn't actually 98mm anymore. Which would mean that narrower boots than 98mm do exist, just primarily in smaller boot sizes (excepting race boots). I thought that's what I'd read on multiple occasions. Am I wrong? I'm honestly curious to know.
