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.
Have you tried on any salomon boots? I had the same problem, went through 5 pairs of boots, and have found salomon to be the best and most comfortable so far. Ive gone through vans, DC, Burton, 32, and nike.
