I have Time ATAC pedals, and Nashbar "pro" mountain shoes..
The shoes seem to be a fine fit, but after about 5 miles I begin to develop a hotspot on my left foot... basically where the shoe meets the pedal.
The cleats are in the same position for both the left and right shoes, but as I pedal it doesn't feel like they are positioned in the same area on my feet. I've tried moving the left cleat back a few mm, but that didn't seem to do much.
In general it seems one shoe fits a little better than the other... are my feet different sizes?
Any ideas as to how I can get rid of it? It's getting really annoying!
gel insoles then stiffer shoes.
Got the insoles.. didn't do anything.
These are my first pair of clipless shoes, so I haven't had a ton of experience, but they're pretty damn stiff.
Any other suggestions? I don't really have the $ to drop on new shoes.
