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.

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.
