I'll post another vouch for Salomon boots. I haven't had a more comfortable pair of boots since my Vans back in the late 90's when Vans was still Vans.
The Synapse Focus is the most comfortable boot I've ever put on my feet. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good enough deal, so I went with my second choice, the DC Judge (which are great as well).
Salomon knows what the hell they are doing.
