hmm thanks for the replies - maybe you're right and it will slow down once i break them in... just kinda freaked me out - the cobbler i took it too showed me a really crappy looking nylon toe cap thingy - maybe ill look for someone who can install a flush metal on if the rubber sole also looks like it wearing out quickly the shoes do a have a rather long toe that tapers off which is probably where my problem is coming from... oh well

is a big heel not a primary indicator of the shoe being straight up too big?
ahh fish the mystery is solved
