I have really wide feet and I’m using wide shoes but I always have problems with outside of the both feet in summer. Even If I feel comfortable in first hour and if it feels like shoes are fine after an hour or two I’m starting to have a lot of pain… Sometimes I have nausea from the pain…
Tums, the chewable antacid tablets. Makes zero sense to me why it would work, but it seems to and it’s low risk. Given that your pain is just one part of your foot, it sounds like a shoe fit problem that would be fixed by a different size shoe or insole.
Bigger shoes and greasy feet were the ultimate solution for me for ultra racing.
In addition to above, move the cleats back, wear SPD sandals, loosen the straps at front, and take your shoes off when stopped. Pouring some water on the socks will help as well to reduce the swelling that occurs from heat.
Hot foot is a well known condition in ultra cycling.
