They would not have given him a J-bar to give him more room, those are used to counter heel lift. They most likely used a heel wedge. Best advice I can offer, try on a few different pairs of boots in a couple different sizes and see what you like best and go with that, don't buy what they tell you too if it doesn't feel right. Poorly fitted boots can really make for a horrible day of riding.
When I was in the Army I knew a man who had 3 rules about sex, one of them was "quantity not quality". I really regret not asking him what 200 pound twins would classify as.
