Excellent boot - good value
I also have a pair of the SIDI Vortice Air boots, and while they're fantastic for riding in Queensland (warm humid conditions similar to LA), whenever I go touring it seems to rain and/or be freezing cold. The fully perforated Vortice Air boots let all the water in, and the fantastic air flow soon has your feet frozen solid....hence the Vertigo Mega Rain boot purchase. I bought the Mega rain so that I could fit a thicker sock under them for cold / rainy conditions - I find that the Vortice Air boots are a little snug across the widest part of my foot, and they take quite a while to break in. The Mega rain boots seem to me to be far more comfortable, width-wise, whilst still feeling like the high end race boots that I'm used to. Of course Murphys Law being what it is, I haven't been caught in a downpour since buying them, but the boots are very well made and are a quality piece of kit. Highly recommended, especially if you have broad feet. there is also a large calf adjustment range for those who need it.

Narrow heel, wide forefoot
Bottom Line: this is the widest sport boot I could find
I wear a 4E running shoe for my "hobbit"-wide forefoot.
I tried 7 other pairs from Revzilla, and this was the widest.
Pros: wide forefoot, narrow heel; solid construction, replaceable abrasion parts
Cons: would be better with a vented version, wider toe box (yep), and inner bootie.
If someone makes a boot with all above, I want to buy it!
Summary: widest sport boot available with very solid construction. I have 2000 miles thus far (trip to Tail of Dragon in NC), and it's a good boot. I did use a mechanical stretcher to widen it further, with moderate success.

Will fit a 6E width foot with stretching.
Bought this boot knowing I have extra wide feet (6E) and the advertised width is 2E. I ordered the Vertigo Mega one size larger than I normally would. Went to work using FootFitter's wooden boot stretcher. I used FootFitter's supplied plastic 'bumps' to create extra space and just cranked the cr*p out of the stretcher. It took a few days to stretch out, but the extra effort worked. Rode for two hours with no discomfort. Sweating in 80+ degrees helped with small hot spots. Decent venting but could have used more air flow. Calf adjustment was midway with leathers tucked in.
