Nope. I've been through so many boots to find one that fits and they're all loose somehow if they fit my width. If they are tight then they are too narrow which is a different problem.

Wide foot that's wide in the middle, not the toe area. Low volume foot. Skinny heel and ankles.

32's finally fit width wise, but now the whole boot is loose and so I have to really tighten it and the binding, and my feet hurt, and I still get heel lift.

I'm going to go and try on a whole different set of boots now.

Loose boots makes for painful arches on long toe side turns.
