One thing to try is to bring the skates to a good hockey shop and describe the problem and ask if they can stretch them or punch them out. Usually they do it for free with a sharpening. What they'll so is widen the boot very slightly where you're having pain.
The only thing I don't know is if cheap skates can be punched/stretched. Usually they can't be baked, but I think they can be punched.
I had SERIOUS foot pain with my skates when they were new, had them punched out a bit up front and problem solved.
Will that even work with inline skates
