I just bought the Nike Breathe Cage's a few weeks ago. On the left shoe where the shoe creases on my big toe I've noticed the rubber drag-on bar is indented and rubbing my foot. Seems like a design flaw and not just my feet. (i've never had problems with any shoe before). Anyone else have this problem? If you've had no issues a response would also be helpful. Thanks!

This happened with my Breathe Free 2s, there was just some sort of "dent" or malformation of the molded stuff, and it never worked its way out. It bothered me at first, but then the shoes softened up a little and I eventually got over it.

Hmm....I wonder if this will soften up over time. On the cage's there is a thick strip about half an inch wide so it's a little stiffer than the old breathe II's.

Are they exactly the same as the picture we've all been seeing?

the creasing of the cage part on one of the shoes is what is making them rub. I have warn them hardly at all so they still look brand new on the bottom.

i think on my shoes i got some rubbing off the court on the sides of my shoes

and on the tip of my shoe i might have gotten some scratches kind of visible
overall, they are still in pretty good shape
estimated time i played with them is probably 4 days with the most for one day was 1 1/2 hours
