So I have a pair of Sidi G5 shoes that I find very comfortable. Well, they are very comfortable to, say, 92 miles. Some times I may get to 93 miles. Then it's like someone clamped a vice grip on my little toe. I can only make the pain stop by getting off the bike and removing the vice grip...I mean the shoe... so I can wiggle my toe around, Then I'm good for a bit. I'm planning a couple of much longer rides this summer, and I'd hate to have this be the limiting factor.

The shoes are not all that tight in the toe box, but perhaps a bit more room would help. Could I have someone stretch the "lorica" (AKA Pleather) a bit in the toe box. Has anyone had any luck with this. Can you stretch pleather?

Any other ideas?

There are only 3 things I can think of that might help.
1. Take the shoes to a shoemaker and ask him to stretch them.
2. Try thinner socks.
3. But new shoes in a larger size.
