Now that I have been losing weight - about 40 pounds so far - I was looking for 16" high boots. I started looking at boots on-line. Red Wing no longer makes the 16" lineman's boots. There were others out the retailing over $400. I was able to find Carolina Boot Co 16" boots for $209 (shipping included). I bit the bullet and ordered the boots (size 12W). Those boots arrived this afternoon.
Took time to pre-lace the bottom eyelets and tried on the right boot (was rough to get it on - because of my high inset - but fits good once on).
Later this evening or tomorrow I will lace up both boots to wear them a little - break them in.
Update: Was able to get both boots on. Little problems getting them on because of my high instep. Once I got them on, they are comfortable to wear. Think I just need to wear them to stretched them - or may have to check out places to stretch the instep area.
