New Boots Crushing my foot

I have always hired crappy boots when I go snowboarding so this time I went to my local store to get boots fitted.
The guy convinced me to get some tighter boots as he said they would break in and get comfortable. He suggested that I wear them at home a few times before I go on the mountain to just get used to them.
Well I found that after wearing them for half an hour my feet go completely numb. I'm a US 9.5 and these are 9.5 boots but for some reason the boots are crushing my instep and along the outside edge of my foot near the pinky.
I took a photo just after I took them off so you get see how they are quite red in localized spots.

What do you think?
Should I return and change sizes or just bare with it for a bunch of wears and hope they loosen up?
