I like my HH Packers, The Official Double-H Boots Website: The Packer Collection. Due to an injury my foot generally won't fit into a pull on type boot, or I need custom made. These packers have plenty of room for my foot that stays swollen and also lace up tight enough for the foot that is normal. I like the heel and find them very comfortable.

Ropers tend to have more room. I use Ariat Ropers, and prefer them to Justin. You could try a square toe...I think they look awful, but they might wear well:

Since you have a wide foot I would also recommend a single welt rather than a double. I don't like to ride in a lace up boot in the case I fall off and hang in a stirrup my boot can slip off to free myself. I also prefer a leather sole to a rubber one as well, but that is just my personal preference.

I just bought some Anderson Beans and so far I am pretty happy with them...we will see how long they last. Years ago Boulets used to be good but I have noticed their quality has gone down. The last pair I bought I wore out pretty fast and they are not as comfortable as they used to be. I have a pair of Resistol boots, the leather is of poor quality but they are comfotable. Someone told me not too long ago that Olathe Boots changed hands again and the quality has gone up. That was what I used to wear in the 90's before they went to crap.

Not sure how much you want to spend, but I have some custom built boots that are awesome. I love my Paul Bonds.

If you have a wide foot, I would say yes.
I wear an A or AA width so I can barely wear a womens! So a mens might work good for you :)

I second Ariat's! I'm 5'3 and wear a size 9! My wide hobbit feet And "sturdy" ankles require room. I've had my favorite Ariat's for 7 years and wear them every day, to town, riding and the leather soles are like new and the stitching is perfect! I get the narrow toed ones and they fit my paddle feet fine and they only run $100 or so. You should try them for everyday use.

HH Opanka Packer boots - Google Search

I think I've gotten lucky a couple of times and found them for around $99 on sale. I think normal price is about $109 to $119 depending on the retailer. I find they last pretty well, I've had the heel tips replaced on my current one, 2X now and the uppers still look new. I wear them every day for mucking as well as riding, so urine does take it's toll on them. I've had this last pair for about a year now and don't see a need to replace them yet.

I just saw where you wear a quad E, so you might check these out in mens' sizes, they're the exact same boot but mens might do you better.
