Question about "hot spots"

I have been riding my mtb on dirt county roads in rural Nebraska doing upwards of 20+ miles...

as well as occasional jaunts in the Pine Ridge area for some single track goodness...

I have 2 types of pedals some straight up Shimano SPD clipless and the Shimano SPD with clipless on one side and a cage style on the other (love these by the way)

and Shimano MTB shoes...

getting hot spots on my feet... not so much when I single track cause I am off the bike more... tried adjusting lugs and what not but still getting them...

any clues?

What model of Shimano SPD shoes? The lower end models allow quite a bit of flex in the sole, and it might be causing your problem.

From the Shimano ad copy: Durable and lightweight rubber tread offers excellent traction and walking comfort.


In my experience, sometimes "walking comfort" means pedaling pain when takling about cycling shoes.
