Is it possible to stretch canvas shoes? Just a little? More inside.

I have wide feet so I usually have to wear New Balance 2EE or 3EE, or Converse bought a size too long. But I also don't wear leather, I like to support Vegan companies, and I don't buy Chuck Taylors anymore 'cuz they're Nikes. (Didn't Chucks used to be sorta the Anti-Nike, the shoe for non-jocks/cheap punks/etc? Good business move, Nike, sewing up the market.)
This makes life buying shoes pretty damn tough. So I just ordered a pair of these Comptons
and I ♥
them totally, but the left one is just a tad tight on my left big-toe tendon (the slightly larger of my two feets.)
Can I maybe wet the toe of the shoe and shove something big in it to stretch it? Or should I give up and send 'em back? :-(
