Raisa, I have similar problem: I wear 10 or 11 and need wide calf, wide foot, and whatever else wide (or the boot pushes on my bones in very uncomfortable way). So far Mountain Horse worked the best for me (it's on wider side).

Edit: I was talking about English.... Didn't pay attention you want western...

OH!! I got a big prob with foot wear, always have... ive got really short feet (not small, just short) i wear a 7-7 1/2 and sometimes i can fit a childrens 5... i know scattered sizes huh... but my major issue is that my feet are wide and my calves (ugh my calves) my calves are and extra wide.. i cant even find rubber boots that will fit with socks on... even if i try and 8 the foot is too big but my calves always get suctioned into them and it takes my fiance to literally pull, yank, squeeze and shake them off of me (with a loud suctioning noise that resembles the sound of flatulence)... in order to actually be able to use my ariat paddock boots, i had to let my mom borrow them for a year or so to get them properly broken in, otherwise it would crush my pinky toes... and ive had to buy extra large half chaps (which are waaaay to long and look rediculous around my ankle area).. i have really short legs too... so i guess you could say i myself resemble a human ferret....

oh and theres no way i can wear western boots, other wise the top of the boot rubs on my calf and causes really painfull wounds that feel like burns

Eh I was thinking about investing in some mountain horse boots (I have been having a western/english confusion) and have finally decided to stay english lol and especially since they're on sale in Dover catalogue.
And TrailRidingGem - have you tried the fuller fillies half chaps? I did but the calves were way huge on me (I cannot fit into regular half chaps or fuller fillies) I have like a tiny bit over the average calf size so it makes finding boots/half chaps/and breeches impossible. The plus sized is always huge on my legs... but my tummy makes up for it lol I am hoping the mountain horse boots fir well.
