I didn't realisze how bad they had gotten until I tried a new pair of boots)

Is your entire foot super wide... or just the front (at the toes?) It is possible to have need a wide toebox, but have a narrow heel/ankle/calf area such that for poorly fitting boots you need to crank down the laces to lock your heeldown... but then that crushes your toes/top of your foot. Look at boots that have dual zone lacing that lets you tighten the upper laces to lock down the ankle, leaving the lower laces looser for comfort.
Yet another reason the zoned speed laces rock...! Screw traditional laces.
