I have a similar problem with size 10 Salomons... I have to tighten down them down real hard to avoid heel lift.  The issue is that I have weird feet, broad across the middle, but with real narrow heels... so I can't go with narrow boots or wide boots, I need to find something in between.  That might be your problem, or you might have gotten a brand that runs large.

As long as your boots are big enough so there is no cramping in the toes, but small enough were you don't get heel lift.  When trying on boots your toes should be aggressivly touching the end so that when they do pack out your toes will then be just brushing.

each boot company fits differently across brands and models. much like each shoe company fits your feet differently.

save yourself a ton of pain by:

GOING TO THE STORE AND TRYING ON MULTIPLE BOOTS FROM MULTIPLE BRANDS.

i wear a 10 or 10.5 in shoes and the same in boots.
Burton 10
Vans 10
DC 10 maybe 10.5
Salomon F Series 10.5

oh, and the F Series SIZE is not actually smaller, just the footprint.

I wear a size 10 in shoes (women's) and a size 9.5 Salomon boots.  When I walk around in them, one of my toes barely touches the end, but when I'm riding, my heels slides back, since I'm bending my knees most of the time.  It doesn't bother me and the boots are comfortable.

i wear 10's in most shoes

and i wear a 10.5 in nikes


and my dc boots are 10's and they are definently the smallest size i can go without being uncomfortable

if i dropped down to a 9.5 my feet would be cramped as can be.

now in my (10) boots i can touch the end if i slide my foot forward a wee bit, but if i throw it back in the heel of the boot i cant fell it at all. i might jump up to 10.5 next year. but these work fine for me

I have the exact same problem. I can't really get my foot in an 8.5 in the shop, but after a week or two of riding - 9s seem too big.
Try getting some sort of insert to drop in your boot to try and take up some space. Can't guarentee it will work, but if a $5 piece of rubber fixes the problem, it's better then experimenting with a $200 pair of boots!

i went and got new boots quite a few days ago. i got the same size but intermediant boots instead of the beginners that i had. they feel so much better and the guy there added a little something to my head so it would be tighter.

I wear 10-10.5 dc Shoes depending
and size 9.5 K2 T-1's boots ( THEY DO PACK OUT! LOL REMEMBER THIS WHEN BUYING BOOTS THEY'LL ONLY GET BIGGER ESPECIALLY IF THEY'RE THERMOFORMED LINERS like the T-1's, 32 boots, and a few rides.)
I bought my boots tight like if im standing it would be a lil nuisance on my toes but as s00n as i bend my kness they scrape the end and after like 10 times this year it's perfect.  when i bend my knees they just barley touch the end of the liner, and when im not bending, it's snug just perfect!
 
so go for something a lil smaller half a size or full size as i did!

Sneakers: Size 10.5
Dress/Casual Shoes: Size 10-10.5
Boots: Size 11

Snowboarding Boots: Size 10.5

I have realized that Burton's new inner linings are not the same as previous years. For example, the '05 Rulers were based on the "Matrix 3" inner shell lining, but the '07 Rulers are based on "Imprint X" (forgot the #) inner shell lining. The "Imprint X" in size 10.5 is much tighter than the "Matrix 3" in size 10.5. My toes were a little cramped in the front and the sides felt a lot more narrow on my feet (since i have a wider than avg foot). I wound up getting the '05 Rulers because the upgrades in the boot were just speed zone laces and articulating cuffs, not much of an upgrade for a $20 increase in MSRP of the boot (the boot increased $10/year). Call it inflation, call it greater profits for Burton, call it whatever you want. I think it's good marketing, bad for loyalty of their fans. How long do they think they can keep rising their prices to their hardgoods for?

Definately take your time and try different boots before buying.  BTW, I wear a size 13 in most shoes/boots but my Salomons are 12.5 and I probably could have gone with a 12.  I like to strap in as tight as I can but I have monster calves and it hurts like hell so I mostly depend on my bindings to hold my heel.
