Boots are the single most important piece of gear you will have. It's the only piece of equipment that physically touches you, so don't cut corners on it.

Like I said earlier, it seems that the boots don't fit your personal foot that well, or you bought them slightly big. Maybe sizing down a 1/2-1 size would be better, but it's tough to gauge when you can't physically put your foot into the boot.

What you can do is go to a shop that has the 32 heat molding system, and have them heat mold your boots. The liner would expand to fit your foot more snugly, but if you bought them too big, they'll eventually pack out anyway, and you're foot will be swimming.

Where do you live?
