Thanks guys. Lots of informative info here. I already have the proper giro insoles as initially I thought it was the lack of arch support causing the problem. Ok, so I rode home tonight and set the centre strap much less tight than normal. Almost loose in fact. But end strap and ankle strap as normal. No foot pain so must be something to do with pressure across the centre of the foot related to with. Will also try adjusting the cleats as this may help.
I would call width.
But you also want to look at cleat position. Are feet too narrow? When this is the case you tend to push your foot out to try to make it go wider.
Also arch support and wedges. If you are pushing the outside, often times a varus wedge will make the foot pressure feel more even.
Perhaps moving the cleat to the right (when looking down from the top) may assist as it may be an issue that I'm pushing down but out at the same time, therefore applying pressure to the outside edge of the foot. Could be that too.
Thanks pal. Did you move it in towards the crank arm or the other way?
It has to be adjusted forward towards the toe or backwards towards the heel. This is something I realized even with my small narrow foot on a non carbon sole that could potentially flex if the position is wrong. In my case on my right foot only I had the cleat too far forward (I followed the Speedplay directions). Causing more pain in the toe area of the shoe because the cleat was not positioned over the ball of my foot correctly. The same can be had for too far back which can cause pain in the arch of your foot. What I have learned is to treat each foot different as far as cleat position till you get to the comfort zone.
Ok cheers I think I will have to try making some adjustments. Thanks guys
