The Atan boots are great but you can only get them mail order from France over here.
I still think it's a bit of an issue with many UK sailors, one which has come up quite a few times on this forum and on the boards forum with many finding the straps too small width wise.
Having to use the outer holes leaves no room for tuning (though most of us bootie clad wearers wouldn't notice the difference) and even when using the outer holes many still cannot get their feet in.
Maybe us brits have just got big feet. (no banjo plucking deliverence comments please)
