I've been getting in 50+ miles in recently but I've been having problems with my toes and feet getting numb. I've tried changing the saddle to a more narrower one and trying slightly different height positions to no avail, also the shoes are a half size too big which gives me plenty of room so it's not as though my feet are squashed in the shoes. Has anyone else come across this problem before? It normally starts to get numb after about 30 miles or so which means every now and then I have to either unclip a foot at a time and wiggle my leg to get some of the blood flow going or stop and walk around for a minute or so. Any advice would be great.
If your shoes are too big there's a possibility that your foot is moving forward and squashing into the end of the shoe. Make sure the strap closest to your leg is done up well enough so your foot won't move forward.
Are you using road or MTB cleats?
