Are there some kind of tricks to bring back circulation in the feet, after 60-90' rides ?
I use Bont A-1's. I really like the performance of the shoes, they're as comfy as can be. But I can't ride for more than 90' without my feet getting numb. Especially the left one.
Loosening the straps and buckle can do it for easy rides, but when in a race, there's not much time to loosen the shoes.
And with Bont's, if you ride with the feet too loose and hammer the pedals, your feet will bang on the rigid carbon back and forth, and you'll end up with pain anyways.
So is there atrick I don'Mt know that folks use to rapidly bring back the circulation in the feet ? Un clipping one leg, and shaking the lower leg helps temporarely. Not easy to do in a peloton. You have to go at the back. Not ideal...
I tried three different socks thicknesses, and two insoles.
I have to use thick socks or my feet are too loose. With thin socks, I still get numb feet.
Maybe I'm ready for my third insoles, as my Specialized BG red are pretty used up.
I bought Sole Thinsport ones, but they were too thin, the forefoot was too loose in the shoes.
