I can't go in to specific boots, but as for a brand, Ariat has served all the horse back riders in my family well- and we all have quite different feet... mine are long and skinny, my sister's are very wide, etc. They just seem to have boots to fit everyone. :)

Thank you all for the info
I tried on a pair of boots at the tack store
But I need more padding around my hammer toe
And a pair that don't pinch me

I have a of comfy hiking boots that I wear in the winter and they have a small

Try another pair in 1/2 size larger than you normally wear, that might leave you some room for padding up that one toe with moleskin or something like that.

Or, maybe a round toed roper type boot is more what you need.

Roper Boots – Men’s Low Profile Roper Boots by Justin and Ariat

The reason the lacers work so well for me is because my foot was crushed from the instep forward and because of all the tissue damage and compartment syndrome I have a lot of scar tissue and swelling in that foot that will never go away, so a pull on boot is very hard for me to find that fits. The wider, roomier toe box on a round toed style might work better for your particular problem though.

Canada West Boots - 4016

These are my babies :) I too have wide feet..I had to have tried on atleast 15 pairs of boots when I went to splurge on a good pair. I definitely reccomend roper style boots, some people don't like the look of them but I prefer them to any other style.

Hope I helped! :)
