Shimano SPD pedal change

I bought a pair of these recently:

I did note before I bought them that they have changed the design slightly to give more support. However, I think I am going to have to revert to the old style - the added side supports restrict heel in / out movement drastically, giving me immediate knee discomfort. I suppose I could take a mm or two off the affected parts of the soles of my shoes but that would mean the shoes would not fit as well on my other (older) pedals.

I do agree that more support at the sides is a good thing, but only if you can still turn your foot freely.
