6MT: Clutch Heel catches on OEM mat: Options?

Tl;dr: My left heel catches on the 'pad' on the OEM M3 floor mat in spirited driving, anyone have a good suggestion what mat to use, short of nothing?

I reinstalled my original OEM mats a few months ago, replacing some cocomats I had from another car that weren't quite the right color. These BMW mats are the ones with velcro hold downs, and have a pretty pronounced heel pad. The edge of this heel pad catches my shoes on lifting the clutch, more often then not.

I've seen where I can get a driver-only new cocomat custom fit for $70. I also wonder if I replace the mats with new (they are slightly ratty, after almost five years) maybe the heel pad won't be so pronounced?

Any other suggestions to consider?

Thanks, appreciate any thoughts on options. Right now I am mat-less.

you know what I 've never had this problem until recently.....I checked my shoe a couple of times to make sure I didn't have any gum on the back of the heel ha. It's only a problem in my daily driving position, in my track position, heel has no problem. I don't know of any solutions but I don't mind it neither.
