Is it possible for one boot to break in "weird"?

I have Ride Anthem BOA boots. Yes, not the highest end boot out there but I like them. My left boot (lead foot) is perfect. No pain, comfy as hell. Right foot? different story. I get pain on the left side of my ankle when I walk in them. I've been trying out a bunch of different stances. Could that be the problem? I mean one week I had it at 15 degrees on the lead and then 0 on the right foot. Now I have it at 15 each and that's when I started noticing the pain.

Does the weird boot happen to be on your smaller foot? most people have one foot slightly bigger than the other. Mine are a half size different. One boot I i have to do up super tight to make it work and the other I need to keep it loose. I often spend the first run or too adjusting as I sometimes do my smaller foot too lose, sometimes even too tight and the larger foot occasionally too tight.
It changes with how cold it is too. If its warmer, a lot less adjustment is needed.
I have got the brand that fits me the best but unfortunately I still have to get foam and shims into them for a closer fit and wear Stable socks which are great for a colder day, they do really help with heel lift!

So what exactly do you mean by weird? That it punched out strangely or is it just a matter of size?
