Default Big Boots, Thinner Waist

Hey everyone.

I was recently at a flea market and found an unbeatable offer. 2006 Lib-Tech TRS w/Magne-Traction along with Amp 5 Flow bindings and Size 11 Daniel Franck Signature Vans boots. All for only $75! The main thing I'm worried about is not the length (159), but the waist (253). I am worried that a size 13 shoe may cause toe/heel drag. Obviously the boots are too small. I will get new boots, but I'm not sure what kind to look out for. I cannot take the board back. (who would want to if it's worth $530!) Is there a simple fix for this? Maybe risers or a footprint reducing boot. Recommendations would be great. Btw I am 15 years old, 5'11 and 140lbs.
