TILL3YTIM3 It's called Roger's. It's in Rogers, Ohio. The place is huge.

thugit I'd really like to find out where this flea market is and give it a visit or two.

TILL3YTIM3 Does anyone know how much Deeluxe One Series boots cost?

chinds4 Somebody mentioned it further up, but standing in a wider stance and/or angling your feet would help, but it all depends on the rider. Some people prefer their feet to be at no angle.

TILL3YTIM3 Thanks guys. Are there any other simple fixes (ex. risers) that could also help. I don't wanna resort to shaving either.

I'd definitely go in the store to try on some boots before buying any boots online. Everyone has different feet and there is no way to tell if a boot will be comfortable or not until you actually try it on. For example, when I went into a shop a few days ago to try on some boots the shop worker gave me a pair of Burton boots to try on that are his personal favorite. They were my size but they weren't comfortable on my ankle. If I had ordered them online I would have had to send them back because there is no way I could ride those all day and be happy. Hopefully the guys helping you out at the shop actually know a thing or two like mine did, he really helped me understand more about boots.

librider26 I dont think ur gonna be able to ride that board with your large boot size unless you ride at like 18 degrees or more. Im looking to get a skinny waist lib and i have size 9 boots and i think i might just fit it.

chinds4 The footprint on the board after the special boots all depends on what boot size you actually wear, and until you figure that out its kinda hard to tell what will happen.

If you get down to a size 11 footprint on the board you might only have a little overhang which isn't such a bad thing because a little can help put pressure on the edges.

And as far as risers go, if you haven't been snowboarding for long it will probably be easier to get used to them compared to someone who has been riding for a long time and switches to them. I don't know how much risers run but I'd say it's worth a try if you need some, considering the amount of money you saved on the whole package.
