Comfy women's boots for wide, high-arched feet?

My feet are roughly the shape of a duck's. What brands of women's (fashion) boots should I investigate?

In particular, I'd love to find boots that run fairly roomy at the top of the foot, just below the ankle. My feet aren't just high-arched underneath, but high on top: the big-toe metatarsal slopes up pretty steeply toward the ankle, and the little bump that everybody has mid-foot, where metatarsal meets the tarsals, is on my foot more like a medium-sized hill.
Boots and booties I've tried in the past (Naturalizers, some cheapie brands) have felt fine at first, but awful after an hour or two, as though they're trying to push my foot out of joint at the top. I could just try wide sizes, but I'm worried that wide wouldn't necessarily equate to high-arched.
So: anyone got ideas for roomier/more forgiving, yet still stylish, boot brands I should be investigating? Lower-to-medium price range preferred, but I do realize that comfort doesn't necessarily come cheap. Thanks!
