Default Please help before I go nuts..

I have had a few pairs of boots.. I have tried on a million..
I am currently riding Salomon Factions (BOA)...
I really like the Boa system so I can adjust on the fly..
no matter what I get heal lift and it makes my feet hurt at times...
When I first got the boots they were decent compared to my last burtons which were awful..

The liners in general just feel really flat.. and don't really hug my ankle at all.. they are just meh at best..

I wear an 11 anything smaller and my toes crash into the boots.. and even at that if I cram a 10.5 on my ankles are not held in that much better..

I live in central PA so there are no real boot fitters in the area..

considering some better liners? like Inovative or something..
but am open to suggestions... In the beginning where I sucked I just kind of dealt with it.. I am still far from "good" but I can ride.. and I feel like my progression is being held back by this poor connection to my board...

board is basic Burton shit but rides fine for me... bindings are cartels which again seem OK for now?

I really feel that the weak point for me right now is boots...

while I understand boots are personal from one rider to the next.. the issue I am having is the boots NOT hugging my ankle keeping me locked in..
