Big auld feet!! I’d look at something like a Carmina mto. If you stick to calf/suede etc shouldn’t be far away and they usually do mto weekends in April with no fees for personalisation.
Or call or email stores of brands you like and if they have one (unlikely) surely it’ll be cheap on sale?
Caveat, it has to be a returnable item, since even if I find a 3E it likely still won't fit. Just don't want to shell out for bespoke on boots as I do for shoes, so I'm willing to try.

As far as finding one on sale, the real trick is finding one at all. I know Rancourt does a 2E. I've tried an Alden Trubalance 3E and that didn't get the job done.

Mmm, was place in UK that had loads of that size but closed, it was specifically for big dudes. Good look fella.

Not exactly EG laces but almost same braided thick laces used by EG/G&G that I also use on all my boots and they last much longer.
If I may ask, where do you purchase them, and which length do you select?
Thanks
