Do you like the Park Avenues enough (other than the bowing issue) to try another pair? If so, there are others that have exchanged 2-3 pairs and worked with customer service to get a pair that does not bow. There is even one poster who did precision measurements of every pair and found that there was excess material present on shoes that bowed significantly, which he shared with customer service. That said, for some people, their foot is a square peg in the round hole of the 5 last and bowing is inevitable. People in the latter category need to try another last and some have purchased the version of the Park Avenue sold by Jos. A Bank, which is on the 8 last.
