Wow! I am so glad that this question was asked. Thanks for the information on this. I too have had some feet numbing issues. I changed my running shoes and do not have the issue. I must have got a bigger shoe which has done a wonderful job. Thanks for all the great information!!!
I'm glad I came across this question. My right foot goes numb when I'm on the elliptical. The shoe string thing never crossed my mind but makes perfect sense. I wear a brace on my left ankle so that shoe isn't as tight as my right one (the numb one). I also usually really tie them tight so they don't come loose on the elliptical. Hmm.. go figure.
If your goal doesn't scare you-it's not big enough!
Hey BAIONEDODA08. You may be in the wrong size shoe...I got similar symptoms when I first started, and it turned out I need half a size bigger for my running shoes. Feet can tend to swell when running, so the guy at the running store said that most typically go up between a half size to a full size bigger than normal.

I have just started training to run in my first 5k. I have run this distance only on a treadmill and only occasionally. Now I am running outside. After the second mile, my feet start to get numb, and they ache for the entire day after that. Does this happen to anyone else? Do I just need time to adjust to running this distance on an outdoor terrain, or might it be time for some new sneakers? Any advice?
