Yes. About those boots, usually once you go to a shell that won't be too loose all over, the boots will be too tight in spots. That's one reason you need a good boot fitter too stretch, punch, or grind out those spots. The other is to get you set up with the correct for you forward lean, ramp and delta angles.
And for skis, stay away from wide skis until you are no longer spending over 75% of your time on hard-packed snow and groomed trails. There is no point on putting extra stress on those ankles by levering a 100 mm wide ski up on edge on a hard surface.
This. The boots you buy should feel tight; the bootfitter then alters the shape of the plastic shell to custom-fit your foot, often after you've gone out and done some skiing. That's one reason why they are so expensive; you are buying in essence a custom-fitted prosthetic for your foot, with aftermarket attachments (skis).
That bootfitter can easily reshape the plastic by "punching" it outwards to make room for bulges in your foot that press outwards on the boot and at first cause pain. He/She can also grind out plastic areas for the same reason.
But making the boot smaller to fill the airspaces between your foot and the plastic shell is never a good process and leads to sloppy boot fit. Bootfitters do have to do this often because people continue to buy boots too big because they want immediate comfort. When the gaps are filled, they still have "give" and the skier loses some control over the skis. Oddly, a boot that's too big also causes more pain than one that is very snug. That big boot allows the foot and lower leg to move around inside until some part of your anatomy hits immovable plastic. There you get a bruise, thus shin-bang comes from boots too loose or big. It's good to know these things when you get into the shop.
