I just got my CC Geniuses in the mail, after I ordered a half size bigger. However, they are very stiff, not even close to the Barricade Vs. And the toebox has this weird curve that makes them very narrow. To make matters even worse, the plastic thing on the side is putting pressure on my feet. Problems: Narrow, plastic thing hurts, stiff in general. For people who own the CC Genius, will they ever feel good? What is the break-in period? Does the plastic thing on the side ever feel better? Does the material on the outside of the shoe ever feel better, because it is very stiff when I walk and on the side of my foot. I don't know what to do!
