Hi, I need help with a pair of boots for my girlfriend.
She has really wide feet for a girl and is on her third pair of boots and still getting numb feet. She keeps getting told they will pack out and the pain will go but this never happens. The boots feel tite across the widest part of her foot and toes when she first putes them on which then leads to numb toes and ultimately a misrable experiance for the pair of us as she is constantly sore and stopping to take the boots of. She has also gone down the route of custom made foot beds which didn't help either. We have tried everything and done a heap of research online for a wide fitting boot with no success.
At the weekend we went to a shop with a good reputation for fitting boots correctly and the guy suggested she may have to try a guys boot after trying on some boots with no success. He did explain that this is normally a no no and all the differences and that she may solve the toe pain but end up sore calfs instead. He also suggested 32 lashed womens boots which they didn't stock.
Any suggestions welcome.
