I bought a pair of Fischer XC comfort boots last year that fit my oddly
shaped, needing wide feet (I can wear Alico hiking boots (Italian) in a
wide width, but New Balance 5E is just barely wide enough). I probably
have the Fischer boots oversize (wear 2 pair of socks), so that helps,
but they do provide a lot of room in the toes. Just skied 100 miles this
week in them and they didn't fall apart, which is more than I can say
for my previous choice; Whitewoods (which are sized very small- go up 2
EU sizes- but they are wide and comfy).
Looking forward to boots coming that are intentionally wide!
