Default Burton Ions feel great.. Until I strap in

I bought a pair of 2012 Ions brand new... I got Superfeet and got the boots heat molded which helped a lot of pressure points and after 2 days of riding they seem to be pretty damn broken in. When I am wearing them and walking around they fit like a regular shoe and I'm quite blown away by tight and comfortable they are. I imagine strapping in and feeling fused to my board and floating on a powder day... But when I strap in ALL kinds of pain starts to set in real quickly. I am strapping into Cartel ESTs and I have made sure that all straps are centered over the boots. I tighten bindings until I feel resistance, then maybe one more click so my boots don't lift out of the binding on sharp toeside turns. Within a few minutes my feet are on fire. What gives? Are they still breaking in? Any advice?
