HELP with sizing on Thirty Two Lashed boots

Hey guys.

I bought a new pair of 32 Lashed snowboard boots in size 10 and got them heat molded in store with toe caps.
They seem a good fit generally but I feel that even when I get into riding position my toes are a wee bit cramped )not curled).
I thought the idea was the toes should just touch then not touch once in ride position ,they feel slightly cramped from above as well.

So ive read a lot of reviews where guys are saying the 32 boots run small so you should just get your street shoe size....even 32 themselves claim this but when I was in the store they go off the brannock system and seem to religiously stick to the downsize rule and keep saying the boot will pack out.

Some say in recent seasons this is not true and some boot liners do not pack out as much as they used to especially 32.
Also the shop says there is no difference between the 10 and 10 and a half as its only differences in the lining shell and footbed.

They also mention if it doesn't work I can always get custom footbeds.

So if I am fitting a 10and a half in street shoe Brooks and an 11 in a Puma im just wondering should I just attempt a second toe cap heat mold or should I take em back and try the 10 and a half which they claim will be faaaar too big even though 32 company themselves claim these things are more true to size.
I haven't taken em up mountain yet so may be able to swap them.
Ive been using hire Burton 10s and 10 and a halfs ( are they bigger than 32 sizing? )

SO frustrating how there is so much conflicting info on snowboard boot fitting.
Any help from anyone who is using 32 Lashed 2012 or 13 boots would be greatly appreciated thanks !

I wear a 10.5 street shoe, and my 32 TM Twos fit perfect in 10.5. So your street size should work. Any good fitter should be able to get that size to fit you perfectly. I have wide skinny feet and after heat molding mine I really don't think they could fit any better. It seems like maybe the 32's are wider, perfect for people like me. Don't give up until you have the right fit. They should be way more comfortable than Burton rentals.

Thanks

It just seems the store was so reluctant to even let me try a pair of 10 and a halfs...I admit I would rather less toe room if I have no heel lift.
Not sure if they will let me exchange them since they were heat molded in the store but I havent taken them up the mountain.
Did your ones pack out much in toe area?
