Cannot find comfortable boots

I'm having a hard time finding comfortable boots. Last year I had some DC Scouts, they were OK but had bad pressure points on my ankles (and I had a half size too big). Just picked up some Thirty Two Focus BOA. They are a little stiff for me, which I can deal with, but after an hour they hurt my feet to the point I can barely ride.

They have pressure points on my ankle bones and on the top of my foot where the inner liner lace is. They have a pattern on the liner and it doesn't match my feet at all. See pic below, the yellow circle is about where my ankle bone is. I have pretty bony ankles/feet, am I just a weird fit?

Should I bother trying to heat mold these, add foam or whatever, or should I pick up new boots? I'm a 10.5, looking for something with BOA and mid flex. Not afraid of spending money for something that works.
