Default overtightening ?

So i am shopping for my first pair of boots. I tried all the boots in the 2 shops around here in 2 different days and only 3 pairs seem close. First, 2 nideckers [versus and focus] were good but came back the next day and after 5 min they started to hurt my ankle.. so they're off.

And the 3rd pair is a atomic.. this one was almost perfect..except after 20min in the store with them on my toes began to go numb..could i have overtighten ? the boot lenght and width was good and there was no heel lift and no pressure spots.. The salesperson said i could have overdone the tightening [i admit i got them as tight as i could] and it could be that my feet were already a bit tired from trying all the pairs in the store.

So..could the numbness be caused by overthightening or the boots are not for me ?
