    You may have to do what I did- I also have wicked bunion issues and I bought the widest boot I could find from Sportsman's Warehouse and then had them stretch the width. They're pretty comfortable now.

    I also have wide feet and have trouble finding boots wide enough to fit comfortably. Does Sportsman's Warehouse stretch them for you right there in the store?

    Yes, they did it right there while I waited. It took about a half hour and I just wandered the store while they did it.

    You might try Boot Country in Anchorage as they do boot stretching/repair. They will likely be a bit more knowledgeable than the typical S. Warehouse clerk.

    If you have seriously odd sized feet with issues you might look into the semi-custom or custom route. Check out White's or Nick's boots.
