What kind of boot did you get? Might be best to return them and keep trying on boots until you find one that fits better.

Best thing is going to be find a boot that fits better. But I had a slight heel lift problem with my boots that I fixed with ankle wrap pads from Tognar. On mine I could wear some of my MX socks that have more padding around the heel and that would help a fair amount so I knew I didn't have to make a huge adjustment.

Try sticking some carboard from a cereal box under the footbed to lift your whole foot as a test. Usually the only difference between half sizes like that is the foot bed.

had the same problem in my pair of ThirtyTwo's, in the same boat as yourself (bought them online)

i built up the heel with a thicker inner sole, then chucked a heel only inner sole under the liner.

still lifting? make up your own J Bars, they work sweet to lock your heel down.

look it up and understand how they work. GL

cheers, Scott
