There was a comparison on here a few months ago about boot brand and running shoe brands. When you purchase new boots, try to find that thread.
DS ended up with Belleville Mt.Hybrid TR550. He wears Brooks running shoes and has somewhat wide feet. The folks who liked the Garmont brand seemed to wear the Asics or Nike running shoes. These are generalizations, but he tried both of those boots and the one was definitely more comfortable that the other.
If you can, try different ones when you get the chance the next time.
All the suggestions about socks are good too. Our family also loves Darn Tough. And they have a fantastic warranty. One DS has made good on that warranty, and it was not a hassle at all.
