I bought a pair of Keen's hiking shoes. They are low top and wear very well, only problem I seem to have is the right shoe while feeling comfortable while wearing them all day seem to be putting pressure on the outside of my foot. Its unnoticeable until I take them off at night and the outer middle edge of my foot is sore to walk on.
If I shower after taking off the shoes and let my feet soak in the water of the tub as I shower the pressure goes away as well as the discomfort of standing/walking on my foot.
As I said I feel no soreness or pressure on the side of my foot while in them all day, but as soon as I take them off the soreness is there but only on the right foot.
I am guessing that the inner sole is to tight against my foot but do not understand why it isn't noticeable until I have removed my shoes?
I walk in them and bicycle in them as well. The part of the foot that feels the soreness I might add is just behind the spur section of my foot. Not the spur itself which has never bothered me before and this is the first time I have felt this soreness from a pair of anything on my feet ever.
Being a tall (6'7") guy I have large long feet. I wear a size 12-14 shoe, wearing a 14 to give my toes room when hiking especially down steep trails. My foot is not really that wide but I have a high instep. I used to have difficulty buying Cowboy boots as a teenager because of my high instep and had to have them stretched at least once or twice a month. Since wearing lace up hiking boots and shoes that problem ended 40 years ago. I wish back then in high school I would have known about lace up cowboy boots that I never saw till I first came to Wyoming.
