    Outer sole pain from shoes when racing

    In my race last weekend, I developed some severe outer sole pain which was so bad after my finish that I couldn't walk for almost an hour, and am still having trouble doing so. I use Specialized Pro mtb shoes which have occasionally caused minor discomfort, but never anything even remotely close to this.

    I was wondering if any of you guys have had the same problem, or something similar, and what you did to fix the issue. I'm thinking a set of shims might help, but other than that I really have no idea.

    "Do you feel pressure on one side of your foot after riding awhile? Most often, you'll feel pressure on the outside of your foot. This means that this part of your foot is the part applying pressure to the pedal. The outside of your foot is sore because it's what is making sole contact (sort of a pun, yes) with the shoe. Putting LeWedge under your cleat so that the thick part of the wedge is on the insideŚthe medial sideŚwill cause your foot to contact the shoe evenly, and will distribute the force area"
