The Atlas uses a stiffer wrapped material that keeps the lip of the strap from taking the shape of the boot. As this strap is tightened, ridden, and released it softens up and will thus begin to act the same way as the identically shaped SL strap. Get it?
My bad. When he said he was going to stretch them it sounded like he meant the whole strap.
If it was just the outer material like you said, than it might work.
