I've been an Asolo whore for nearly 15 years, but I'm always glad to look at new stuff.

Needs:
* Wide (10.5, EEEEEEEEE, unless they have 'em even wider)
* Good ankle support
* Waterproof
* Lightweight is also great, but not the end-all


I've worn they Fugitive GTX in just about all terrains, and they feel like house slippers. I got TPS 520's for sheep & goat hunts, & the extra ankle support was invaluable - that made it more than worth the extra weight to me.

What's out there these days that trends wide, and holds up well?

Thanks in advance,

FC

Not a backpacker, but I will be watching this thread with interest. My feet are normal at the heel and eeee at the toebox, and proper fitting footware has been a challenge all my life.

Not many options out there for duck feet. I either scrunch my toes or slide around in the heel.

Moved to Hunter's Campfire. It'll probably get more traffic, and inspire much better pissin' matches.

Have you looked at Keens?


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

Keen's are a good boot. You could also check on Vasque boots.

Seriously, just razzin' you a little. I also have trouble getting boots that are wide enough to fit my bear paws, so I will be watching this thread!

Here you Go. I’ve got narrow feet and I like the narrow Lowa’s I can order.
