If you are looking for boots check out Full Tilt before buying. I know it's an old technology upgraded with the new bells and whistles but the combination and the added new liners are extremely good stuff for people with wide feet. In the old days I had to get my boots pushed out with a hydraulic piston at great expense, and of course it made the boot look damaged.. Then I skied for years on a set of Nordica Smart Teck 12's, also a good boot for a wide foot but heavy as hell and the draw cables would freeze up with ice so I couldn't get them off easily. I still wore the liners out because they were so more suitable to my feet. Then I bought a pair of "Booters" just because they felt good on my feet and in and out is so easy. My daughter selected a set of "Mary Jane's" and loves them, she also has weird feet and cold foot syndrome, which has mostly gone away. Most ski boots are designed for a "D" width but the Full Tilts are way more forgiving with their top down design rather than being crammed into a wrap around design. Ski boots are like hockey skates, if you have wide feet you have to pay $800 or at least for skiers you can by a Full Tilt boot that will fit.
In terms of racing, I wouldn't say the Booters are your choice here at least not without a stiffer tongue (which is available on their website, but even with a stiffer tongue I think Full Tilt has other offerings better suited to racing than the Booter, which is a terrain park boot), but for my sloppy all-mountain style they work great hooked to either my 666's (I know, old, but still not packed out due to titanium and still a great ski) or my Fisher Watea's, and both those boards are heavy so I appreciate that the Booters are not. One of the lightest boots out there because the strength is in the tongue rather than the back or in the case of the previously mentioned N12's a big aluminum frame.
On the 666 and why I am still on them, to the critics I would say yes this is a heavy board, but I haven't demo'ed anything better. They aren't really great at any one thing, but if you are all over the mountain I still haven't seen anything better. They will pack out soon I imagine, but then what?
The Watea's are great in the deep but feel like 2x4's on the rest of the hill so I only pull them out if it's snowed. When I bought them I thought "these are huge!" But now I see people skiing corduroy on wider and much floppier skis. The Watea's are big but they don't chatter until you are going as fast as a car. The 666's, as old as they are, never chatter. But they are starting to loose a bit of edge on ice even after tuning so I know they won't last too much longer.
