2) Will having a 1/2 size too big make much of a difference with this boot?

Corrective action begins with custom footbeds to support and align foot in boot for balance, strength, endurance, circulation and weight-bearing capacity. If the cuff needs to be adjusted, do it after he invests in a great footbed.
This might help you find something in Ill.

I am an intermediate skier. Last year I upgraded from very low end beginner skis (Head Cyber 20x) to Volkl V3's, and my skiing improved immensely. I am still a little awkward on the slopes, my equilibrium is not the best, but I have little to no fear and ski relatively aggessively for someone who's only been skiing for 4 seasons.
Now, I'm finding that my boots are limiting my abilities and my skis' capabilities. They are Tecnica Innotec T1 6.1 (a model that probably doesn't exist anymore). These served me well, as they took me from a complete beginner to a moderately good intermediate level... but now I need to upgrade.
I have a narrow heel, but a wider forefoot (87 mm). I tend to get very cold feet (poor circulation? or perhaps the Tecnicas are not very warm?). I'm rather small-framed (140 lbs, at 5'9").
I'm in the Ottawa region, in Canada, so this isn't Wistler... mostly hard packed granular and lots of ice.
I need a boot that will take me from my current level to more advanced, yet be a little forgiving of my current limitations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
For now, I have been looking at the Nordica Speed Machine 14 and the Salomon X Wave 10.0 Fast... but only in magazines (haven't even been to a ski shop yet).
Thakk you so much!

Too bad they do not make that accesible on the Tecnica Italy homepage - at least I can't find it there.
