Solutions rub funny

I just got a new pair of solutions and there seems to be a little plastic piece on the outside edge (inside the shoe) where the closure strap settles that is poking/rubbing my foot. It is obviously going to lead to blisters, at least until I either callus there or wear it down.

Has anyone else had this issue? If so (or, if not), do you have a good solution to get past it other than just get blisters and power through?

Thanks all.

Not with a pair of solutions specifically... But:

But I had a pair of shoes that the bottom of the corner of the toungue did much jabbing and rubbing... It was awful. My solutions was take a small piece of ductape and cover the offending corner. Held it a little flatter, and name brand duck tape it super slick. Wore those shoes for a couple years and several resoles with no further problems.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
