Nike Boots fit/feel..which one? please advise?

So I ordered 2 pairs of nike force 1 zoom's. in a 6.5 uk and a 7 uk.

I normally where a size 7 uk shoe, but there is always a little bit of room, thats the way i like them.

Im just not sure how the snowboard boots are meant to fit/feel after reading so much about them through these forums. Yes I understand that they are meant to be tight and toes at the end but not sure as too how tight bearing in mind the factor of them going to 'pack out'. here ill try and describe best how they feel and any advice would be great.

UK 6.5

toes are at the end. I can feel big toe pushing quite hard on to the end. when I walk about these start too feel quite uncomfortable on the big toe. i feel my little toes at the end also. and not much room for movement before the toes start to keep pressing against the end.

now if these packed out to half a size to a size 7 then it would be perfect

UK 7

toes are at the end but not pushing hard. they feel a tad wider and feels like it has a bit of breathing space. when i walk around they feel comfortable and im not thinking these hurt a bit.

the main difference between the both is how hard my toe at the end pushes. it either quite a bit or just touching.

I really like the feel of the 7 but dont want them to pack out and then they are massive.

so the to solve this is I guess is figuring how much will they pack out? and which you think of the above sounds right. ive read different things like nikes coming up small but also that they are meant to hurt when you wear them but then after a few sessions they feel perfect.

what do you all reckon?

try to heat mold them as nike has offered

Step 1: Fill a snowboard sock with uncooked rice and tie it off at the top, then microwave it for 2 minutes on high heat. (DO NOT MICROWAVE YOUR ACTUAL LINERS)

Step 2: Remove the footbeds from the boot and slide the warm sock filled with rice into the boot for 10 minutes,
making sure the sock is pushed all the way to the toe box of the boot. (If there is too much rice in the boot it might be hard to get it way into the toe box, adjust as necessary.)

Step 3: Remove the sock, put the footbeds back in, then lace the boots up on your feet and stand/walk around the house for 15 minutes.

do that with the 6.5

I have 12.5 that had the same feeling as your 7 and they have packed out too much.

If your 6.5 is pushing on your toes with pressure, they are likely too small. For new boots, toes touching the end is what you want.

13/14 days
60/75

14/15 days
let's not talk about it

Yea! I think I'm 95% sure I'm going for the 7. If I hadn't read so much and went to a shop and just knew they had to touch the end I would of bought the 7. I mean my toes are still at the end so they must be right.. And in the 6.5 I can imagine getting bad cramp through the foot, that's how they feel. Maybe I just keep the 6.5 and if the 7 fail me I have the back up.

Still welcome I more advice

I have Nike Kaiju's in size 9 and they fit perfect. They were a little tight after last season and was told by the local shop to stick in some superfeet arch supports. This raises the foot a tad, your arch higher, and gives you a bit of space. He said to walk around the house for several days when you're doing nothing and it'll stretch and mold to my foot. Worked out perfect! I had a handful of shops advise me not to bring them in and heat mold them. Nike's are re-heat moldable and will form to your foot with heat/wear......

I wear a size 8.5 in all Nike running, soccer, casual shoes. The 9 fits snug, but not painful....
