~ First Pointe Shoe Concerns ~

Hello,
I just got fitted fro my pointe shoes last month, and bought Suffolk Stellars 5.5 XXXXN.
Since getting them, I have been taking 2-3 pointe classes a week. I believe that I should be getting over my box more, since it has been almost 2 months since I got my shoes.
I have attached some pictures.......What do you guys think?

I have bent my shank back and forth on both shoes, and that helped my left foot a little bit, but not my right. Is it my feet or my shoes? Will they mold more over time?

Also, I sewed my elastics on crisscrossed, to get maximum support for my feet. But, the way they are positioned, make my shoes look unclean.
Can I move my elastics? Or should I remove them completely and sew on a single ankle band? Maybe I should wait until my next pair?
Oh and, I didn't cut my ribbons or drawstrings yet, until I hear what you guys have to say.

Thanks for your help fellow dancers!
