This sounds weird but do you have large ankles??? If you are tightening the ankle area a lot to compensate for the looser feeling around your foot, you are cutting off the circulation to your foot causing reduced blood flow to your foot and the tingling feeling.

How thick/thin of a sock are you wearing to?? Was this the same thickness sock you used when you tried them on at the store???
