    I think I damaged my shoes with a footfitter width stretcher in an attempt to stretch the shoes in the vicinity of the right pinky toe. I used a bunion attachment. I did manage to stretch the shoe, however, it now seems to dig into the most pronounced bone on the top of the foot along the left hand lacing eyelets. This has happened on two pairs of shoes. It appears that the stretching did something to throw off the proportions in other parts of the shoe. The tongue on the left hand side of the right shoe appears a bit skewed to the right -- in the direction of the pinky toe stretch. I could attempt to stretch the shoe at the big toe in an effort to possibly undo the damage, but I don't know if that could make matters even worse. Has anyone encountered something like this?

    No, because everyone’s foot is different.

    Were these shoes new? Perhaps just wearing them and letting them break in.
