Numb = too tight. You don't want numb feet.
Do you have wide feet? If the length of the skates are fine (see: toes feathering the toe cap when standing up, not mashed against the end but not an inch short of touching) you might try on a wide size of skate (EE instead of D.)
Also, go back and try skates on again with ONE pair of
socks on. You want the least amount of extra space inside the boot. You're not going to get a good fit with two pairs of socks on. You should also try on every skate they have in your size, from any brand, as long as it's within your budget. Different skates have different fits. Keep trying new skates on until he's shown you all the models they carry in your size and price range. CCM, Easton, Bauer Supreme and Bauer Flexlite seem to be the wider skates so try those on as well.
