New Five Ten shoes: Toe's pain and skin friction normal?

Guys, I am about 2 months into wall climbing. I loved it very much. My belayer keep showing harder and harder route to go. (3 times a week, top rope 30" Gym rock). I am in love with Rock Climbing.

I just bought my first shoe, got a Five Ten Team for a good deal 50% off. My feet normally fit size 10 or 10.5, so I order the size 10 and ir couldn't fit my feet at all.

I finally settle with size 12. It fit nicely, except it brings pain to my toe knuckles, and I had to take it off after two climbs or so. Yesterday, the toe next to my big toe got too many friction, part of skin got peeled and bleeds a little.

My questions is: Is it normal? Should I get a different shoe? the Five Ten Anazazi VCS maybe? or Evolv Shaman?

I like this one because it looks nice, fit good, and I got it for 50%off.

Let me know what you think.

Loving Rock Climbing.
