You will not get any responsiveness and it will result in a loss of control. Having a boot too stiff will throw your body out of proper positioning and result in delayed reaction times out of your skis. A 120 flex works great for bigger and more aggressive skiers without having the “brick like” stiffness of a 130.
In short, should you size up or down in ski boots? Generally, better skiers place a premium on performance while casual skiers value their comfort. But regardless of your skill set, your new ski boots should fit as snug as possible in the shop, because they're only going to get bigger and looser and sloppier with wear.
Now we can look at which ski boot models will be the best to suit your wide feet.

Head Edge LYT. A serious contender in this wide fit category is the new Edge LYT from Head. ...

Why do my ski boots hurt my calves?
Ski boot fit and improper ski technique also can cause calf pain. Boots that fit too high or too low on the calf, as well as boots that are either too tight or too loose for your calf size, are potential culprits. Wearing extra heavy socks or wearing multiple pairs of socks distorts your boot fit and ski technique.
