    What's the logic behind breaking in shoes on carpet?

    To keep the soles in returnable condition while you assess fit, which you can only do by wearing them a bit. Obviously you should also try not crease them (depending on retailer terms, etc. - don't want to get into that discussion again).

    Because the toe on the sole wears excessively while the sole is still stiff.

    I've found this to be the case as well, and now insist on walking on carpet quite a bit with a new pair of shoes before their maiden voyage.
