I desperately need a new set of boots this year and it seems like options are a little slim... I'm a size 14 with a weirdly shaped foot (wide toe box, narrow heel) so I'm looking at boots with nicely moldable liners. right now the two best options seem to be the ride jackson coiler and the k2 ryker... I'd love to go the driver x / malamute / insano route, but none of those seem to be made in above a 13... any thoughts? has anyone tried the jackson coiler or the ryker?

thanks.

Downsize to a 13. With molded boots that shouldn't present an issue. Unless you're actually a 15. I down size my 13s to twelves with no issues hiking/skinning/riding.

I tried this with a pair of burton serows... it didn't really work out. I guess it could work if I found a larger brand. does anyone know if any boots run substantially larger than a burton asian fit?

I had thirteens in 09/10 malamutes, and they packed way the hell out. I ended up tossing them after about 50 days last year. my buddy who had been wearing mutes for years also busted the hell out of his '10s.
