Boot Trouble.

So about a month ago I brought a pair of 2011 Burton Bootiques 8.5.
When I got home, I realized they squished my feet. I wore them around the house a lot, trying to pack them out. My feet we're extremely uncomfortable, pain in my toes, as if circulation were being cut off and pain in my ankle.
So I went back to the store and exchanged them for a bigger size (9.5) This was today. I wore them for about 10 mins, when they started to hurt. I loosened up the lower zone, and it helped for a while. BUT. Then they started to hurt again
So my mum suggested loosening them completely for a while, then tightening them up til they were rid able but still loose.
So I did. It was fine for maybe 30 minutes. Then my left foot (toes) started to feel really sore. I strapped into my board for a bit. Unstrapped. My toes we're even sore-er.
I took off my boots and my toes had pins and needles, it quickly dissapeard.
The pinky toe on my right foot, feels very squished, and on the top of my foot it is rather red.
What sort of things should I be doing to fix this problem.
Different Boots?
Different Size?
Pack them out more?
I haven't got much time left because it will snow soon, and I want to be out riding with all my friends.
Advice?
Thank you.

Try a different brand... and they change year to year within the brand. Size 10 in 32 fit me one year, then the following years size 10 turned my toes black and I had to sell em.

If I change the brand I'm pretty sure it won't refund.
If I were to put a tennis ball in the toes for say a day. Do you think it would pack out toe area a bit?

See if the store will let you return them. It sounds like the boots are too narrow and are still cutting of circulation regardless of the bigger size. Maybe try out some mens boots out. Guys boots will be a bit wider and will have more room in the ankle and calf area, which could be what is cutting circulation.

I'm trying to find our if they'll give me a refund. (that when you give a product back and they give you your money back right?)
I'm thinking of checking out another store.
Interesting though, my last boots were mens. But too big.

Pretty crappy store if they won't refund unworn boots that don't fit, especially if they only carry one brand.

No, I checked they can. I'm from England you see, our stores over there aren't reliable, so it's a habit.
Anyway.
So
I put back on my new socks and boots, and this time played around with the tightness so ti was tight enough to be secure, but not super tight.
Success. But would it be safer to try and make them wearable at full tightness (twin lacing system).

The store is amazing, not much variety but the guys there really know what there talking about.
