Stew, I realize my boots maybe a little overkill for ya, BUT, I've learnt that you really DO get what ya pay for with boots! And on a serious trip, they are the MOST important piece of equipment! They are the only thing that separates you from the ground! And they have to put up with a lot, while keeping your feet dry and blister free!!!That combo doesn't come with cheap boots, sorry to say!
I've got extremely narrow feet, so I have to go with boots from Italy, AKU. They are tough!!!.... I tried the cheap $250ish stuff, like Merrel. What a joke! I can pretty much kill a pair of those in one hunt, and my feet got so wet in them that I got athletes foot so bad, I had to cut my hunt short! That sucks!!! Ya, a week long sheep hunt, caboshed in 3 days!!!
So, if you're still listen'n buddy! Can I suggest dig'n a bit deeper into the ol' budget, and look at brands like Scarpa, and AKU, if ya got narrow feet. For wider fits, more like Hanwag, Crispi, and Miendle.
Then try them on and wear them for a while....they should be real snug all over with no pressure points. You can also undo lases to avoid this, if needed. If your heel moves more than an 1/8", KEEP LOOK'N!!!
And I'd recommend a good thick pair of Smatwool Expedition socks with a wicking sock under it! The extra cushioning will keep you feet in awesome shape on steep terrain!!!
You won't regret it!
