Women's size 5.5 E (yes.. E)
Hey everyone.. I'm a 29 year old female with really wide feet and almost flat feet. I have been snowboarding for almost 17 years and I can honestly say I have never had a snowboard boot that's fits properly. My feet are a size 5.5 E. When I buy regular shoes I normally buy a wide width women's size 7 (which is usually a C or D width). The problem is that when a boot comes in wide width it's still not wide enough so I end up buying boots that at too big. For the last 3 years I've been riding in Men's size 7 burton boots (which are equal to a women's 8). Does anyone know of a brand that sells boots in widths like A, B, C, D, E, EE? Boots that say "wide" are just not wide enough. I would probably need a 6D or 5.5 E. Please help! I can't go on like this haha.

Comparable question was asked here with at least one women's boot being recommended

Good luck!

What and why you ride it now.
Your going up in size of boot to gain the width.....
For every half size you go up in a boot, you will gain one size in width.
Let's say the average ladies boot width is around a B width. (fancy shoes are a A or less width).

5.5 size foot with a E width...
you're going to go up 1 and half sizes to get the width you need.

So, what do you do???
First you need to find someone to make a custom footbed from a ski or snowboard shop. With a custom footbed your foot will be a "true" 5 D.
Then with some custom heating and boot work you could get into a 6.
