Default By the end of today, the bottoms of my feet were BURNING...what to do?

In new Nike Zoom Force 1's, I was wearing them around the house yesterday and they were making my outside toes go a bit numb and the bottoms of my feet were in a little bit of pain. But since they fit great in the shop, and I didn't break them in yet, I proceeded to wear them out today. I could deal with the numbness, but less than a couple of hours later, the bottom of both feet were sore (the bottom towards my toes). Took a break, took the boots off, and the pain went away basically right way. And the pain seemed to go away while riding. Fast forward a couple of hours later and the pain was burning and pretty unbearable unless I was riding...which didn't help me because the lines were rediculous.

Is this typical for brand new boots that haven't been broken in? How long should I break them in for? At what point do I give up, try to recoup some money, and get another pair? Are there any other options, inserts, maybe?
