I thought perhaps you would have some insight. I'm not looking for a diagnosis as I already have an appt. with a Podiatrist.
I'd welcome the guesses and suppositions as this would give me something more to go on as I try to research it.
I've been wearing my old running shoes alot because they feel great but once I noticed this ache I've been playing around with different inserts (that I already owned, superfeet, etc.) and found that when I stepped on my original running shoe insert that my forefoot hung off either side by a quarter to a half an inch on both sides.
so regardless of the diagnosis it's obvious I need to switch to a different running shoe i.e. Saucony ProGrid Rides come in wide. I'm currently in Saucony ProGrid Triumphs (no wide available) Would you agree?
