So I have owned a particular pair of cycling shoes for about two years now, and logged enough miles in them for them to be broken in. I have never experienced any problems with these shoes until now. Although the bicycle has changed, the pedals are still Shimano SPD.
Basically, I head out for a ride, and three or four hours into it, my pinky toes experience significantly distracting burning pain. A contributing factor has got to be foot swelling, since there is zero pain on shorter rides. In the long run I will probably find new shoes for touring purposes. At the moment however, I cannot afford replacement shoes. Are there any temporary solutions/alleviations to the incompatibility between my shoes and feet? (yes I searched) Many thanks!
