In a pinch?
Temperatures are dropping and the weather is cooling down! Don’t get suckered into heavier socks! That is the wrong way to keep your feet warm and can lead to a painful condition called Morton’s Neuroma! Despite the name, Morton’s Neuroma is not a true tumor, but rather a fibrous tissue formation around nerve tissue. Early neuralgia starts as an occasional mild ache or discomfort in the ball of the foot, usually, when wearing a specific shoe, such as those that are too narrow at the front. Neuralgia is usually one sided. A heavy sock, or over tightening your shoe straps can cause the nerve to thicken. The pain becomes worse, often with a burning quality or pins and needles or a false sense of a pebble in your shoe. It will most frequently affect between the 2nd−3rd and 3rd−4th toes.
So those shoes you got for summer might not cut it for the cooler temps.
Warning: The wrong shoe, the wrong cleat placement, saddle fore/aft, saddle height, improper pedaling style, and the wrong sock can have you in a pinch!
