Have a look at some Salomon boots. They seem to accommodate a wider foot.

Not sure which ones have the Boa lacing system (never been a fan of it myself).

I have the burton rulers as well, really nice lightweight boot, super warm too. my foot is just a little wide. People say the rulers fit true to shoe size but I'm one example that does not, so make sure you try them on first.

I've also heard that about salomon boots, and I tried the BOA a few years back and hated it, just my opinion. The Rulers do have speed lacing if that's what youre looking for.

I have the rulers and I have a regular width foot; they actually fit really snug. I dont think rulers are known as wide boots, but I could be wrong. I know there is a general consensus that 32 boots are wide, I have tried on many and find that theres a lot of room on either side of my foot. Like someone said, salomon has wide versions of boots so you can look into that too

I had Burton Rulers before I bought my Salomon Dialogue wides and there is a significant difference in the widths. If you have a legit wide foot (like myself) I would highly recommend the Salomon wide boots. I just wish I had discovered the Salomon boots earlier so I could have saved a bunch of money.

Wide Boots with Boa...a few options

Still, looking for a wide fitting boot with Boa? Here's a few other options. You won't go wrong with Boa and the Boa system is guaranteed for the life of the boot.

- ThirtyTwo Lock or Focus Boa – Roomy toebox with a heat moldable Intuition liner.
- K2 T1DB or Maysis – Also a little roomier in the toe box with an Intuition heat moldable liner.
- Salomon Savage Boa – A little harder to find but runs a bit wider in the forefoot.

I suggest trying on an many pairs as possible to find the right fit for your foot.

Check out Boa Technology | The Boa Lacing System | Dialed In Performance and you can see other manufacturers who carry boots featuring the Boa Lacing System.
