Putting a loose fitting boot inside bindings that are too large for them again is not suggested. I know that is not what you were hoping to hear, but i figure it is better to put this out there now.
Apologies if this is a bummer.
Completely agree, that looks way too large. As I said before, a size 11/44.5 boot with a 27cm foot was probably wrong - not impossible, but highly unlikely. The picture confirms for me that the boots are too big.
