The Ride Bigfoot is nothing special in terms of tech but its a nice gesture to help out the bigger footed rider with a boot built specifically for them. This is traditional lacing and there isn’t much new tech going on except for one very key thing. Ride is at the top of the industry when it comes to reducing the foot print length. This means that there is less chance of heel/toe drag with the Bigfoot on than other boots in it’s class. If you have a big ass foot (16 and up) it’s pretty much this boot as there aren’t many options for basket ball players, linebackers and Yetis out there.
