I recently purchased a Nitro Team 157. The waist width is 25cm, and I wear a size 10 boot. My toe overhang is about 7/8'' and my heel overhang is about 3/4''. I have Burton Custom bindings, and my boots sit relatively high off the board. My stance is ducked at 6 & 15 degrees.

Should I consider shaving a bit off the toe and heel of my boots or am I ok?

You will be fine. I only see it as a possible issue if your bombing steeps and I would assume you would want or have a wide all mountain board for pow...if you find it to be a issue, try a set of those Palmer power link plates to give you some extra clearance.

don't your bindings have gas pedals (raised toe ramps)? If it has any hang, larger pedals may help. size 10 shouldn't be a problem

your fine.. i wear an 11.5 and i smash on a normal board. wide stance helps a bit. try to get your boot centered over the board perfectly though, moving the base pates back a bit.

Shouldn't be an issue..... I've been shredding with a pair of size 15 boots for years without risers. Just duck em out a bit and don't get the bindings with the fat toe straps
