These are terrible boots for you.
...then again, maybe they are perfect.
How close is your foot and lower leg to the last of the boot? Are you expert enough to know?
How close to optimal for you
is the ramp angle of the boot?
Does the forward lean combined with the ramp angle (zeppa) put you in balance at neutral? How will you know?
These things are essential! Read the FAQ in the gear forum

Then, do whatever you want.
But, your best approach is to break the bank on the boots and fitting, and deal with whatever skis you can get... And teton is right: unless you're skiing a lot, it's probably not worth it to buy skis. I went for years without them just using demos.
