Boots for narrow feet.


I've asked a few gear and schedule questions here before and found the 
info to be real useful.  So.... I try again.  My wife, Tara, and I will 
be starting a through hike on May 4th or 5th.  I bought some Scarpa boots 
back in November and I have been wearing them for the last 4 months.  
I think I've come to the conclusion that I screwed up and they are too 
short (It took me a while to admit my big $$$ mistake).

Anyway, I just went out to the store over lunch and tried on a bunch of
boots.  I tried on Vasques, Scarpa's, Aslo's(Sp??) and a Reichlei (Sp??). 
All of them were way to wide when I got a pair that I felt had enough
length.  I do have a narrow foot and always have a hard time getting ski
boots ( I finally resorted to the foam filled boots).  

Anyone have any suggestions for a boot that runs narrow?  I'm wearing a
Thorlo Trekker when trying on boots without a liner (I normally don't use
one).  Is there a sock combination that may help?  I'm thinking I'll take 
a trip out to Campmor this Friday and try on some more, so any help will 
be appreciated.
