As for the steel being ground down. I don't think so. The blades look new.
As for the heel, I guess its actually between my ankle bone (Lateral malleolus and medial malleolus, I think they are called. The actual bump bone that skicks out of the ankle) and the heel. It's right underneath that bone that I am feeling pressure.
OK, see if they work in for you then.
That pressure you are feeling is the result of the anatomical nature of the ankle padding, not the first time someone has complained about it lol. Fortunately for you, there are several ways you could go about this. If you want, you could let that part break in as well. You could also compress that area with a spot heat treatment (this is explained several posts back) with the help of the store, or you could have that area punched out by the store; though that's more of a last resort option imo.
