Best boot for wide feet?

I recently purchased a pair of size 13 US Burton Rulers even though they are a little bit long (probably between 0.5 to 1 full size) because they are wide and my feet are disgustingly wide (fallen arches so my feet look like friggin flippers).

Now, I would like to get a shorter boot (hopefully size 12) that is just as wide. I am looking for stiffness of about 7 or 8 out of 10. The idea is to be able to fit my boots onto a mid-wide board (or anything less than my 27.4cm wide Nitro Magnum). Anyone know of a wide, fairly stiff boot with that has a minimised footprint?

First thing to try is Salomon wide boots (synapse and dialogue). If you dont like those, 32's are pretty wide from what i hear.

Out of the Burton range of boots, I found the Ruler to be the narrowest I have tried. Try one of their other boots. I have really flat feet, couldn't fit a size 11 Ruler (width wise), but the size 11 Ion fits me perfectly.

Why not just get the Rulers in a size 12?

Coincidentally, I bought the size 13 Rulers too and I love them. They fit really well for my caveman feet.

Another +1 for Salomon Dialogues. Great boots.

I have had 2 pairs of ThirtyTwo boots and found the Lashed to run wider in the toe box than the Prion...both fit my wideish feet well.

I have pretty wide feet and I have ridden 2 pairs of Thirty Two lashed and they were pretty good. But I love Celcius boots now and I am on my second pair, they are supper comfy right out of the box for me
