Any trail runner recommendations for normal 13 D sized foot but with a super high instep. Wide widths end up being too sloppy in heel, etc. My NB Leadville sort of worked, but its gone and its replacement Hierro has a scree shield deal that really cranks down on the instep. REI recommended La Sportiva Raptor and Bushido, both still too tight, and I’ve tried some Saucany and Salomon models to no avail.

I just picked up some Altra Lone Peak 4s that, with some lacing adjustment might work—the rest of the fit is super comfortable and I know this shoe is very popular on the PCT and AT.

Can a similar high instep/regular width dude drop some knowledge? Intended use is short distance trail runs and as go-to backpacking shoe
