Your's look so great kinda beat up and soft compared to the stiff stock photos.
They soften up quickly. Here they are new, compared next to the same ones I have in dark brown.
I find my Alden Indy's suprisingly uncomfortable. I'm not sure if it is just me or what. I've been considering putting them up for sale.
You might not have been sized properly or your foot might not be meant for them (I can't remember what type of foot shape the tru-balance last was designed for). Mine are very comfortable out of the box - they also don't have the same heel as the regular 405's, which might be why.
