Default DoWin Weightlifting Shoes: Lateral Instability

Hello Everybody,

I just got a pair of DoWin Weightlifting Shoes as a birthday present. Time to get serious with my weightlifting endeavours.
The problem ist that their sole is not completely plane: it is more elevated at the center of the foot than at the sides. This leads to a kind of lateral instability when standing in them. Viewed from the front or from the side not all of the shoe is touching the ground.

Is that a problem that solves itself with time and pressure or do I need to send them back? Or is it possible to have the unevenness repaired by a professional? (I was thinking of having the heel height reduced for better deadlifting anyway)

Regards and thanks for your help,

Fabian Gruben
