How big are Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) boots? Are any NASA equipment related to the ISS open to the public, if so were where would I find it?

The boots come in two sizes (large and small) and there are three sizing inserts for a total of six possible sizes.

The Enhanced Boot (Figure 3.5.5) consists of a fabric ankle joint, fabric foot envelope, fiberglass sole stiffener, removable heel, threaded fabric attachment ring, and a TMG. The Boot Assembly provides for flexion and extension of the ankle joint while maintaining SSA pressure integrity and joint shape. Two sizes of boots and three sizes of Boot Sizing Inserts for each of them, allow for sizing adaptation to different sizes of crew foot size.
