Will common projects leather achilles stretch at all?

    Just bought a pair of these

    http://www.mrporter.com/product/166586

    in 46. I am usually a 13 or 14 shoe in US sizing. I was told that Common Projects run a little big. The length is perfect, but as these are a narrow shoe, they are jus the slightest bit tight around the toe area. If they stretched out a little bit, they would probably be perfect. Anyone have experience with these and can comment on the stretching?

    I figure all leather can be subject to stretching if only just a small amount. Considering keeping them and getting some wooden shoe stretchers to put in there, but I have to make the decision to return them now if I want to do that.

    Thanks

    I have a pair of Black Winter Premium Achilles - when I first bought them they felt the same way. They stretched and fit absolutely perfectly now!
