To break in the heels on your climbing shoes, here's what you can do:

Wear them around: Start by wearing your climbing shoes around the house or during light activities to allow the material to gradually conform to the shape of your feet.

Stretching exercises: Perform stretching exercises to target the heel area. You can use your hands to gently stretch the heel portion of the shoe or place a ball or a cylindrical object inside the shoe to apply pressure to the heel.

Spot stretching: If you feel a specific area of the heel that needs more stretching, use a heat source like a hairdryer to warm up that spot. Then, apply pressure or stretch it with your hands to encourage it to mold to your foot.

Climbing sessions: Take your shoes for several climbing sessions. The repeated use and movements during climbing will naturally help break in the heels and make them more comfortable over time.
