Obviously, everyones feet are different so talking about fit is a waste of time, you need to find a pair of boots that fit before any other considerations. I own La Sportiva climbing shoes and mountaineering boots that I'm very pleased with and that fit my wide feet well so I stuck with the brand. I went on a tryout hike w/them (9 miles) right out of the box and was astounded that I had not even a hot spot. Since then they've become my favorite boots. One caveat: Because the boots are handmade, the fit varys slightly from pair to pair. I had to try on 3 different pairs before I found one that fit perfectly. Also, the Gore Tex liner works great at keeping water out but can be a little steamy on really hot days.
