My go to daily driver stand is an on-stage vocal-type mic stand, that I cut in half.  So, its about 2' long, and opens to double that.  To that I carry a series of adaptors made from 3/8-16 all-thread rod, that run between 6" to 3'.  I do have a Manfrotto 9' light stand, that gets broken out occasionally; but, maybe 1 in 8 recordings does it get used. I strongly dislike the sound of music from 12'+ in the air. It just does not sound like what I heard that way.

Pay extra and get one that goes high...12 feet at least.  You always have the option to run low but going higher is the best solution for talkers that gather around a stand like moths to a light. It minimizes stress too cause you always have a solution to rude talkers that you're in control of.
Which model # goes 12' and also has a small footprint?

Those two things together sound like a very bad idea.

EDIT: I just remembered this model which does it, but be prepared to pay almost $1k for it.

I use one of the bags from a camping chair for my stands.  It's big enough to keep the manfrotto & 2 extensions (with clamps attached) in the back of my car.  If I need a bag for the stands/extensions, I just keep what I need and leave the rest in the back of the car.

You could do a standard mic stand with the heavy iron base, rather than a tripod-style stand, then add a boom and an extension pole.

Stand: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/400080-REG/On_Stage_MS7201B_MS7201B_Microphone_Stand.html
Or:
A stand that goes to 8 feet: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1311373-REG/on_stage_ms9312_three_section_microphone_stand.html
Boom arm that goes to 3 feet: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/82338-REG/Atlas_Sound_PB21XEB_PB21XEB_Adjustable_Boom_Arm.html

Kinda pricey, and heavy.

For a stand over 10ft, you want a Manfrotto 1004BAC.  Lightweight but sturdy construction, well worth the price.  I wish I had bought one of these in the first place when I was starting out rather than the cheap ones which are far inferior in quality.

If you need a bag to carry it in, this one fits it perfectly.  You don't need the Manfrotto bag unless you're transporting 3 of these stands.
The link picture looks like it has a wide foot print. Is it any larger than the 10 foot bogen and manfrottos foot print?

^ I have never actually measured, but I'd bet that it's about a meter diameter at full extension.  You can lock the legs securely at less than full extension, but, of course, it won't be quite as stable.

Yes.  You can make the legs very narrow, but it would be a bad idea.  I use a heavy weight bag when the stand is set high.

If you want to mount full-size mics (not tiny lavs or something like that) and you need tall height, your options are:
A. Wide base (preferably with some counterweight)
B. Narrow base but HEAVY weight.
C. No base, but a rigid, semi-permanent attachment to floor or structure (heavy-duty clamp, bracket / bolt, etc.)

If you don't have one of these, you run the risk of damage to your mics and surrounding humans.

I recently bought a new "big stand".  Wanted one I didn't need to use extensions on top of to get sufficient height when warranted at open festivals and the clamps were starting to get iffy on my decade-old cheapo Impact brand stand.  I can't justify spending much on a stand and found this PhotoSEL for $45 in time to use it at Wanee a couple weekends ago.  Doesn't collapse down very small but is very solid, far more robust than my old Impact stand, and goes up 13' which was my target.  Staked it down with a single "dog screw" and strap, and it stood like a redwood with zero sway in the breeze with my wide-span rig atop.

Another vote for the Manfrotto 12'. I liked Ed's so much I had to get one for myself. It is incredibly sturdy at full extension (running actives) and you are over 5' above the tallest person in the room.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/644444-REG/Manfrotto_1004BAC_Alu_Master_3_Riser.html

Edit: The one thing I don't like about the Manfrotto is that the stud on the end cannot be changed. FedEx wasn't really gentle and mine was delivered with one end of the box open. Evidently the stud end hit the ground, mashing the threads completely. B&H sent a replacement but if it was on me, a quick release would have been the only fix.

That inexpensive PhotoSEL stand I just posted about has a removable top stud.  This is the only stand I have with that feature.  The included stud can be flipped for either a 1/4"-20 or 5/8" thread.  I was slightly concerned the stud clamping mechanism would interfere with my odd mounting method, but it worked out fine.

That is a pretty unusual feature.  I've only seen that before in the super-tall (and super-expensive) Manfrotto stands meant for high camera angles.
