Help with boots

I have been doing a ton of reading and have tried a bunch of different boots on but its hard when you are in the store to get a true feel. I have had my burton Sabbaths for years. They are just destroyed... I went with DC Judges (2013 model) last year and just had a few days in Vermont. My feet and legs are killing me. I do all mountain riding nothing to hardcore just some small jumps and lots of carving. I am getting really bad bruising on my calfs and lots of spot pain in my heel. Also get a ton of heel lift. Just not happy in this boot. Was thinking of trying out the Nike zoom boots or going back to a lace up instead of a boa. Just looking for some thoughts.. I have a lot of riding ahead of me and just miserable right now.. Here are some pics of the bruising i am getting Again any help would be really apprecaited. I wear a size 12 boot... Ride duck footed regular..

idk...but try different boots; perhaps examine material and measure circumference and height of the the old Sabbath's top of cuff and try to find something similar. On another note, my calves used to swell up; then started using neoprene compression sleeves over my socks and thus eliminated the swelling, increased circulation and endurance.

Thanks wrathfuldeity.... I plan on going to try a few different pairs on. Wish I had a local boot fitter. Think I should invest in getting fitted and find something that I can ride for an entire day somewhat pain free.
