When I was young, my mom bought our new school shoes from a "Buster Brown" shoe store... aged myself here!.
OK... so they had, made and used heel pads or tongue pads... think of very thick band-aid with stick-em on the back side of the padding. Place it where the "to big a space is" and it takes up space and makes a better/custom fit...
For you that would need shaping/bent to fit in the heel counter center back for a better fit.
The things stick and don't remove easily either so if you can find them {check "real" shoe stores} be sure where it needs placing cause once their..it's their!

Other wise, mole skin will work as will a large band-aid put on {the size you use for skinned knee}
Dump the ankle socks and wear socks made with a heel and toe reinforced area that are mid-calf or over calf height so they don't slide down, rumple and create a blister from irritation of bunched sock either.
If you must wear those low cut socks then you need another pair of socks as high or higher than the paddock boot top...worn underneath.
Personally I think you will find a big difference in comfort wearing those boots walking around, forget riding when your bare skin is padded with cloth and sweat is whisked away and off the skin..

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

I have ridiculously tiny ankles and get this with any knee boots so I HAVE to switch to something ankle-esque for running around!
