Looking for wide boots
Hi All,

I'm looking to upgrade from my 7 y/o boots.

Stats: I have Fred Flintstone feet: high arch, wide, short length, and tall (due to high arch).

Want: Cush (air or gel), upgraded lacing, and better ankle lock down.

Tried: The Burton Hail and SW but felt pressure along the top of the metatarsal. Liked the Salomon Dialogue but they were narrow; looking for the Dialogue Wide. BTW, I have a 11 y/o Nitro that fit great and want to try Darkseid.

Any suggestions - Nito

I just got the dc judge, haven't taken them onto a slope yet (will do friday) but have worn them around the house. I am not sure what you mean by "wide" but I would defiantly suggest trying them on. They have the air system which will make a awesome custom fit around your ankle and heel once inflated. it also has the boa system integrated into it.

I am no expert, but like i said, wouldn't hurt to try them on.

Vans also have a wide fit.

thirty two boots have a tendency to have a wide fit. Go out to shops and try lots of boots on from different brands, you'll eventually find a boot that fits well.

Checked out 2 shops
already and will check out another Thursday. But I want to call ahead and find if the boots are in stock to try out b4 driving to the shops.

Thanks for all the advice, if you have any other recommendation, please post them.

Thanks again - Nito
