All shoes crease. Goes with the territory of you know...walking. Shoes should feel snug but not hurt you. At any rate, those aren't the worst shoes I've seen. They aren't however terribly high quality so any mistakes purchasing them will be short lived.
Next time, instead of paying $225 on those, I'd find some Carmina or something on that level and stalk around until you find some on sale. You'll have something that is handsome, respectable, resoleable and not disposable.
