In need of help for a wide boot
how can I say this???
You need a boot fitter----in most cases folks like your self will opt for a bigger boot to gain width---what you need is the right size widened to fit your width.
check out the list of fitters in "Who's who in the ask the boot guy's" at the top of this section of the forum, find one nearby the trip will be worth it
leave buckles OPEN (yes, not done loosely, but off)
you might need most of the above with your current boots, or with a newer boot that someone can help you with. Just dont get boots oversized, you need your hell still held in place.
I high lighted sentence he (mntlion) means, the 2 lower buckles on top of the foot.
But ----- Tighten the ankle buckle (usually the second from the top) to the point of being too tight then back off till it is just comfortable---this will "hold" your heel in the back of the boot. You would also have more room in there if you went without socks---hard to believe I know, but it works. Ultimately you will need to have your boots modified to be comfortable. Footbeds will shorten your feet and stabilize your ankle joint---good stuff.
