Default Wide boots?

My feet are really really wide, so I'm looking to buy a pair of wide and comfortable boots. I live in Iceland so I wont be able to try them on, so I'll have put my trust in you guys. What do you recommend? I'm a beginner and don't ride park.. if it matters...

Salomon dialogue wide would be the best choice for a beginner. It has a mid flex and are made specifically for wider feet

DC boots run pretty wide, be careful though because my last pair of dc boots were almost too wide for my binding which made getting in and out of my bindings a bit more of a hassle than it needed to be.

Your best bet would be to get good measurements of your foot and start email the sepperate companies. Salomon is one company I know that makes specific wide boots.

there have been a lot of complaints about DC gear falling apart prematurely, while almost all the reviews on salomon boots are positive. I've been riding my dialogues for 3 years(~40 days) and they are holding up fine, only cosmetic wear and tear

Celsius Cirrus are pretty wide. Just tried a pair on the other day and had to walk away from them because they were too wide for me. Good looking boot too!

Are all the Dialogues wide or do I need to search for a specific wide boot?

the normal dialogues are narrow, you have to look specifically for the dialogue wide
