I second Tiny's suggestion of Ariats. I have flat feet and very wide feet (when I used to buy Justin Ropers, I would get a EE width and still get pinched) and, due to spending too many years walking and running on concrete in crappy tactical boots, I have foot problems including bone spurs and tendinitis.

Ariats are the only boots I've found that are comfortable for me to wear. Oh, and one little piece of advice, if you have a normal or narrow foot, you may want to go with the round toe like the ones Tiny posted. I used to have a pair of those but they were still quite a bit too narrow. If you have a wider foot, you might look into the broad square toe like this
Professional Quickdraw 11" - Ariat.

Those are the ones that I have been wearing daily for almost 3 years and they are still in pretty dang good shape, considering. I can walk or stand or ride in those all day long and I end the day just as comfortable as I started it.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

All I wear are Ariats and I have flat feet. I'm also VERY picky about fit and feel (played soccer for years).

My go-to every day boots are my Ariat Terrains. Look more like a hiking boot, but with a decent heel for riding. I love that I can literally do anything in them: go for walks and hikes, ride, wash the car. Heck, I even wear them to work (wash cars for a car dealership).

My good boots that I'm going to be using for showing are Ariat Tombstones (in "sassy brown"). They're uber-comfy. I actually have started wearing them more for every day (non-work). I used to live in my Adidas running shoes...now I live in my Tombstones.
