Looks like Cabelas discontinued my boot from last 5+ years (Meindl Ultralight). It was one of the only boots that were 10" high and 6E. I need a super wide boot to fit orthotics and also need the 10" height for ankle support. I know it's a tough request and I have searched a bunch, but am coming up with very few options. Any one know of a hunting boot that comes in 6E or at least 4E that they have had experience with? Thanks.
Take a look at Red Wing Boots, they do make different styles of hunting boots or may do a custom via customer service.
You may need a pair custom made. If I were you, I would PM, Kota-man. He’s the authority on boots.

Rockies are junk now
Kifarucast did a podcast with a custom boot place, I believe lathrop and son maybe? Listen to the podcast. Might get you pointed in the right direction.
Hoffman boots out of Kellogg, Idaho, you will not go wrong.

Lathrop and Son will do custom boots and they are great. I have a size 15 4e. Good luck
Call Lathrop and Sons, they can put together something better than the Cabelas Meindel and custom fit it.
Mine needed a bunch of stretching due to Hagalunds disorder, and it was not big deal for them.
Lathrop and Sons are the best!
Thanks for the input. Already talked to Crispi and Hoffman. Neither have wide enough for what I need. I should have added that I need to add a zipper to get orthotics into boot and also have to put stirrups in sole for a brace. Was trying to stay away from high $$ since I have $$ modification that need to be made also. May have to bite the bullet!
