Slippage, too much space, or other?

I have a pair of Burton Freestyles that I bought, at the time fit really well. My right foot is a perfect fit my left big toe touches the liner but doesn't jam. So I tried breaking it in at home but my shins were kind of in pain after walking around in it. I heat molded it at the local Burton shop to help the break in.

Fast fwd to the day I wear them on the slopes, I'm still getting pain in my calf/shins going down the mountain a couple times. It seems that either my left big toe has too much room in the box or my heel keeps slipping and jamming my big toe against the liner. I'm not sure what it is, maybe a mix of both as I go from heel to toe side? It's too much pain so I say eff it and I grab a pair of burton rentals and they fit fine obviously their packed out. But I was able to ride afterwards. Couldn't save the toe nail though

Would it make a difference if I try to heat mold them again? Or should I just abandon them? I wore them once and I know the Burton boots fits me well cuz that's all I used when I used to rent. Any suggestions?

I could be wrong, but I don't think that the Freestyles have a heat moldable liner.

Are you kicking your heels back into the boot before you lace them? Maybe you could take them to a boot fitter that is nearby?

You're right they're not the freestyles they're the Boxers sorry about that. Yea I'm def kicking my heels back. I ride regular so when I'm going heel side it feels like my big toe is being pushed up against the top of the toe box, which is why my toe turned black. Maybe there's too much room in there? I never broke in boots before but I can't imagine this type of pain coming with that process.
