I'd worry that, if you are blistering, you might have gotten slightly too large a size instead of too small a size.
Blister means foot movement. Foot movement means gaps between liner and foot. At least for Seba Highs, the idea is generally to buy the smallest boot both feet can physically fit in, lengthwise (I guess there may need to be some compromise here if your foot is extra-wide). This should help ensure the thick, stiff liner presses against all parts of your foot, including the depressions, when you first put them on. Which is why, until the liner compresses around the bumpy parts of your foot (takes about 1 month because the liner is so stiff), the boots hurt like !@#$ hell.
How did you choose what size Seba to buy? Did you go through the Seba-recommended process of carefully measuring your feet in millimeters and using the chart? Note that shoe size or current skate size has little bearing on the proper Seba size, so you should disregard them. I also worry that trying on the skates beforehand purchasing might not be a good idea because, unless you are used to Seba break-in, you will probably buy too large a size. From what I hear, most people buy too large a size anyway. I know I did until I started wearing Sebas.
Note that, after break-in, the fit is generally wonderful/snug/comfy.
