Hi there, I'm looking for some advice on the best woman's wide fit boots. I have tried various makes and models and sizes bit still get numbness in my toes. I have had custom insoles made but it makes little difference . The next option is to get a wide fitting boot or maybe a mans boot..…thanks

If I remember correctly, K2 boots are usually wider than others. Burton and Vans are on the narrow side.
Different models of the same make fits differently too.
Custom insoles like Superfeet have a slimmer profile compare to stock ones which will give you a little more room.
If all else fails, go with men's boots.
I'm a male that have narrow feet. I ride with women's boots. No shame in da game.

You may need to try out Men's boots and see which one fits you best.  Go to a local store and throw on a pair and walk around it in for awhile.

I have b!tched multiple times on TruSnow about how boots don't fit my stupid feet.
 
I broke down and spent some real coin on the Solamon Synapse boots in Wide.  My running shoe is an 8 4E, but I have a "regular" sized heel, so boots have been a struggle forever.
 
Check out my review of them in the Boot Fit Tips thread here:
 
basically, all of page 4 is my complaining! LOL  but so far so good with the new booties!
 
Like others have said, find something that is comfy, no matter the look.  Heck, i'd even sacrafice performance for some comfort.

Please don't go cheap on your boots. They are the most important.
I'm not saying more expensive boots are better. Just saying that if you try a pair that you think fits you best, but is out of your budget...well save up and get them.
Make sure to go to a shop and try as many as you can...and be very nice to the staff that's pulling out every single pair of boots for you.
I spent countless hours in many stores trying boots on before I got the ones I have now.
My fear for those days will soon come again...don't think my boots will last all of this coming season.
Damn my small Asian feet.lol

thirtytwo's are pretty wide and comfy. But be careful with your binding fit. I have 6.5 thritytwos which is a medium in burton bindings and the bindings were too narrow for them so I had to jump up to a large. Also with thritytwos i went 1/2 a size smaller than my regular street shoe size and packed out perfect.

I also hear vans are wide but I haven't had any experience with them.

Forgot to mention, if you like speedlaces and/or boa, go with dual zones so you can adjust the tightness of the calf and forefoot independently. This way you can still feel slug at the calf but can allow more breathing room for your toes.
Good luck.

I don't know about wide but my 32 boots are very roomy at the toes other than that they fit pretty snug to me.

I rock a 6.5 Thirtytwo Lashed boot and I had to get a wider binding, from medium to large. Thirtytwo' Lashed are known for being one of the wider boots in the market, but their liner system is pretty spot on to get that snug fit for narrow feet (I have narrow feet). As for the toe issue I got the 6.5 instead of my street shoe size which is 7. I pulled out the 6.5 insole and it was dead on my foot size. The liner's giving me a little of a heel lift now, But I like my liners super snug so I'm getting J-bars installed.

I wear Burton Coco boots. They are quite soft, but fit my wide, duck feet beautifully. I normally wear a women's size 9, but my snowboard boots are 10. I have enough room to wear thick SmartWool snowboarding socks with them. My best advice...try on a gazillion +1 pairs of boots. It took me many, many pairs to find the right ones. My feet rarely tingle or feel cramped and it makes a day so much more comfortable if you're not worrying about your feet.
