This may sound strange, but you might want to call and email the company. Believe it or not many times if the product won't perform as they say (phone-get name) and you have it in writing (email) even wearing them to shrink them shouldnt matter. Be sure and ask to the point questions reagarding this (having to wear to break in to make shrink-if not unreturnable). Many times they will make an exception bc you have it in writing. ASK them first. I have heard of this happeneing, and they made good on it; gave her a new pair made to order and fit!! Just a thought---Good Luck!!
