Question Problem with my boots

I have a pair of Vans snowboarding boots, and I'm a regular (as opposed to goofy). Every time I go on my toe-side, my right foot slips out halfway (I feel my heel lift off the bottom of the boot completely). Are my boots too big or should I try to tighten my laces?
Also, my left boot keeps pinching the knuckle at the base of my pinky toe. Is this something I can fix?
Thanks in advance

you have skinny ankles and a normal-to-wide forefoot

boots that fit are the solution

You do need a better fitting boot, heel lift is a bad thing, try on some boots at a shop and find the right size, it will help your riding a lot.
