Is it just me, or is the sole (double leather) of this shoe EXTREMELY rigid and inflexible? I am finding it absolutely impossible to break in. I have other (English) shoes with double leather soles that aren't nearly as rigid as the MacNeils. I am referring to calf MacNeils. My cordovan MacNeils have a different double leather sole than these (whatever the factory one is on that shoe, it is definitely higher end than the calfskin). I am interested in hearing if anyone else has had this issue; for being such a venerated shoe, I expected more from these. I am close to giving up on them and putting them on fleabay!
