I need new trail runners for my fat feet and I keep thinking Altra Lone Peaks based on the super wide toe box. And then I see reports like @Perry's and I can't pull the trigger.

I got a pair of Merrel Moab (waterproof) for winter hiking, but I'd like something lighter weight for 3 season hiking.

Any suggestions from the crowd for light weight, wide toe box shoes?
I really like the Lone Peaks. I have returned two pair in the last year and a half that I felt fell apart much to soon. Altra has accepted my returns and replaced them promptly.

I tried on the Lone Peaks and found the aggressively cupped heel uncomfortable on my Achilles tendon. La Sportiva Ultra Raptors used to run super wide, but they narrowed the womens in the most recent model. I don't know if they did the same with the mens. I have wide, flat feet and am using Salewa Multi Tracks and the older Ultra Raptors.
