If they have gone past the return-by, don't be afraid of taking scissors or a knife to the offending area. I once had a pair of ASICS Lahar that pushed on my achilles too much. I cut off the top of the heel area with a box cutter and they were fine. I did take the trouble to sew together over the top of the cut but I think they would have held together anyway.
