Which is the better boot and why?

I'm not sure which to buy, both have been recommended I'm looking for comfort in a good wide boot, anyone help?

Thanks

any reason that you are looking at these boots, they are both very outdated models the X wave was last produced around 2004-5 and the icon was finished before that

 

there may be a valid reason but unless it is pretty good i would avoid both of them as technology has moved on a whole heap and boots are so much better than they were even 5 years ago

 

as to what boot is best, without your feet in front of us it is pretty much impossible to give you an accurate answer as every foot fits into a boot in a slightly different way, you need to be working with a boot FITTER rather than just someone selling boots and they will guide you through the process, if you read the wiki at the top of the forum "which boot will work for me" you will get lots of information to help you.  there is also a list of boot fitters who post on the forum here, if you can get to one of those then you will get great service, if you cannot, let us know where you are and we may be able to guide you towards someone we know  

 

good luck getting boots sorted
