My daughter and husband both have high insteps. They have a terrible time with shoes. I can usually grab just about anything off the shelf and it's good.

I have a pair of merril hikers. Too much tread, holds the stirrups to well for my comfort. Pair I have are definitely narrower than the ariats too. Not nearly as comfy.

Joe4D, I have wider, flat feet and I have had really good luck with Keen brand boots and shoes. Super comfortable, good arch support (my SIL who has really high arches loves them) and I'm pretty certain they have waterproof options. They also always have a rubber toe guard - not as protective as carbon fiber, haha, but better than nothing.

I do like the Merril boots for hiking, though I've never ridden in them. I currently have 3 pairs, from almost running shoes to winter hiking boots. They seem to fit my feet much better than any other brand I've tried. The Ariat Terrains that I ride in are pretty comfortable, once I added insoles. I can hike or run in them without problems.
