Default Boots for wide feet.

I'm not currently in the market for new boots, but am curious for in the future when I go to start looking what are some of the brands that make wider fits. I have short wide feet and the shops around me are few and far between so it would be nice knowing in advance what shops have or don't have what I would need. Rides boots have seemed to fit me best from what I have tried, but was wondering some other brands also.

I have bad feet also and Ride boots and the canted bindings with softer ankle straps and foot beds have helped an undescribable amount.

First off, I think you should invest in some therapeutic insoles. If not prescribed then buy the Remind Medic insole or maybe a shred sole insole. Now to boots, 32 and K2 ran wide from my experience but you'll need to try them on. But for real. If your feet hurt and it's not from being crushed then you need a serious insole.

Getting fitted for boots and having canted bindings with more padding has done wonders for my feet. There are still bad days, but they are very few now. I have been wanting to get to the foot doctor to get insoles my golf shoes and work boots for some time, but never seem to get around to it which is dumb on my part. I have picked up cheap insoles, not snowboard boot specific, in the past for my work boots and riding boots and they have mostly seemed to make matters worse. Probably because I don't know what the problem is with my foot and I'm getting the wrong stuff.

Don't have many shops around and most of them only carry a few brands so when I'm being fitted I don't have many options. So I'm just trying for future tense to limit the shops I would be traveling to.

I've also got short wide feet but with high arches and high instep. The widest boot I've tried are the Salomon wide. For comparison, I wear Burton traditional lace boots; they fit me best.

I heard that about K2 but found it not that wide. I have a wide left foot, moderately wide right foot. But my foot is wide halfway up. Before the ball. It's maddening.

32 boots and DC were the widest bar none (never tried wide model specific boots yet like Salomons). tried the k2 Maysis and it was definitely squeezing my left foot. Burtons are just wide enough. Nikes narrow.

I have wide feet and regular burton laced boots hurt my feet a lot. I went ahead and bought salmon dialogue wide boots and I'm in heaven. No pain and so comfortable.

I also tried 32 focus boots and they are not as wide as the dialogue wides. I'm sure with them packing out they will be good too.

I would definitely recommend the saloon dialogue wide boots for people with wide feet.

In my experience, Salomon regular (non-wide) boots are slightly wider than K2 boots. Nike and Ride boots are narrow. Thirty Two have large toe boxes, too wide for my liking, my toe felt like they were swimming.

This question is now being asked on a weekly basis. I guess I'll have to be the search nazi this time around: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sea...archid=2966241

I found Flow Boots pretty wide towards the front of the foot.
