I must admit that I was skeptical at first given the fact that I have a EEE width and have always had trouble getting comfortable shoes to wear. Having said that, I decided to order these boots with the extra wide version along with one full size larger than my real foot size, having learned that awhile back. Anyways, I wound up with the bates XXX-wide in a 10.5 size, and let me tell you that, they are fantastic. I just finished my first tour last night and my feet felt wonderful. Thanks again to Bates and Galls for delivering a quality product thus making my job that much easier.
