genrally you should never wear boots the same size as your shoes... most always smaller never larger.
The salesman told you exactly what you need to feel. just a touch when standing straight up. and if you lean into the boots. you should feel your toes pull off the front. (for expected pack out)
it may not be that the boots are too small but that the Conda liner system needs to be adjusted. open the outer tongue of the boot there should be a green "pringle chip" shaped piece that velcros to the tongu. pull that away and move it to different positions.
also a insole may help you foot feel a bit better.
if this doesnt work. maybe your feet and k2's dont mesh well. chalk it up to that.
