Our expert says:
Thank you for your question, there are various factors that could contribute to your pain.
- when exercising, your feet would swell due to increase blood supply to your muscles, which will take up more space in your shoes and can cause discomfort
- if your shoes are old or worn out it would not provide proper cushioning over the balls of your feet
- the width of your cycling shoe could also contribute to your discomfort
- the shape of your feet and biomechanics could also play a part, often the correct in-shoe adjustments could assist with supporting your feet
- the position of your cleat could also influence the comfort of your feet
- lacing/straps of your shoes and thickness of your socks could also influence the comfort of your feet
I would suggest that you consult with a podiatrist with a special interest in biomechanics that could assess your shoes and feet and advise accordingly.
