Based on the standards of width fitting set by the footwear industry, wide width boots are described as broad boots measuring 3.8" to 4.4" at the ball of the foot for men sizes 6 to 11. Wide width boots are given the letters E and W. Letters or numbers in front of the main letter will indicate a wider width. For example, EE or 4E indicates a wider width than E.
Lowa Renegade III GTX Mid I may be the ultimate tester

I had a very bad accident with multiple broken bones in my foot. Had 3 very involved surgeries. I am left unable to work. And I thought unable to walk. I ordered 18 different hiking boots thru mail order. These are the only boots/shoes that have allowed me to walk. I bought 3 pairs to rotate them & have worn them exclusively for 18 months . This pretty much says it all about support and comfort.

Lowa Hunter GTX Great Chukar Boot

Great ankle support. Traction is also great especially on those wet/frozen mornings on rocks. Side hilling the boot squeezes down on the outside (downhill) part of my foot which is annoying after awhile but feels like it should go away after the break in.

I have a big wide foot and have a hard time finding 14W so usually have to wear a 15 to get fit at all. And those are usually a little tight. Glad to see lowa making a wide boot in this size. I found this boot and it is by far the best fitting boot I have ever worn. Pretty stiff sole but broke in easily. Just the right amount of support and flexibility for my what I need it for. Hiking, mountain and desert hunting and backpacking.

This is a good boot. Little higher than most. Great ankle support. Soft leather. Comfortable after a day or so of wearing. Not too warm. Solid Vibram sole. I could wear this all day for a week.
