Yep just as everyone else said, thre prob a bit big for you. The fact you need to do them tight when there new indicates this. Really in new boots you should barly be able to do them up they will be that tight.
Prob best trying to find a new shop. If your fitter did not tell you to get custom footbeds he is not a boot fitter. Take them to a good shop and see what they think. If they agree that they are too big, take them back to the first shop and get your money back.
Yeah if you wear thick socks then you will just pack the liners out faster and they will fit worse.
There areno half sizes in boots, so they will be at least a full size to big. Your boots are the equivalent of a 27 in normal boots and its more lickly based off your shoe size that you would be a 25 or 26. You may be a 27 but its unlickly.
Honestly the best bet if they aretoo big is to take them back and get a smaller size. They will only get worse. Take them to a good shop and have them shell check them, that way you know if they are too big.
What do you mean return them to your work? Do you work at the shop that fitted them? If you did then ho good is the fitter, how many years experience does he have?
Regarding taking them back its better to do it after 2 days then struggle with them for say 10 days, and have the shop refuse to take them back as you skied too much in them.
Regarding the spk, its more lickly those too were too big as well. The spk has a low instep though, so It could have been this that kept your foot back better in the boot. But if your in a boot too big, eventually it will pack out and your foot will slide forward when you ski, making you think they are too small.
What size was your un-weighted measurement?
