Desperately needing a suggestion for a wildland fire boot for a foot with a narrow heel but wide toes. After 20 years in Buffalo & Hawthorns (Whites), I simply can’t wear the high-heeled boots anymore, and they’re too narrow at the toes anyway. Tried Haix but they were all wrong. Tried Lowa Baffin but lost 3 toenails due to the rigid rubber around the toes. Tried Danner long ago, but way too wide at the heel.
Is this a hopeless quest? I have another decade to go before retirement and must have fire boots. Full-time year-round fire exposure. 60% pavement time, 40% walking through fire on flat ground in Fuel Model 7.
I live in a locale where there are NO boot stores to try various brands. But will be in Seattle the morning of Black Friday. I appreciate any & all suggestions!
