Boots are as tight as they'll ever be when they're new. They'll pack out with time, which can be good and bad. Good because it conforms to your feet, bad because you might eventually start noticing some play (especially heel lift) that slows board response/performance. I had some major heel lift until I started storing my extra layers and a dictionary in there, which mostly fixed it.
