Soooo, I went to try on boots

Hey every'buddy'

On Sunday I went to try on boots and it was just my luck that the only place open was strictly Burton, haha. I tried them all on anyway but I have some questions. I wear size 10 in shoes so I tried on 9.5 and 10. The 9.5 fit the description perfectly for how a brand new boot should fit. When completely upright, my toes touched and when hunched down they ever so slightly pulled away. I guess what I'm saying is that the boot was maybe too tight by a tiny bit. But, for some reason my gut instinct was telling me they were not going to work. EVEN though they will pack out. I tried on the 10's and they fit magically. The 10's had the right support in all the areas, but my fear is that after some use, they will pack out to be too big.
Any thoughts or advice?
Thanks.

Yeah, I think I was confused sort of. I just always seem to conveniently forget that boots will pack out.
