Will Allen Edmonds shoes loosen up a bit in the front, or should I exchange them for the next half-size up?

I bought my first real pair of dress shoes yesterday--a pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenues, in black. I wore them today to a wedding, and while I looked fantastic, the front halves of my feet are, well, a bit sore. (My right foot is the bigger of my feet, and it's the more tender of the two, but the left is a little sore as well.
When I first tried them on in the store, I was wearing 7.5s (yep, my feet are little!) and my heels kept popping out when I was walking around in them, so I opted for size 7s instead. My understanding is that a nice pair of shoes loosens up after a few wearings; what I'm wondering is, should I wear them a few more times to see if they get any better, or would it be wiser to exchange them for the 7.5s?
