yesterday i rode 43 miles, and this ride included two cat1 climbs, and about halfway home i couldnt feel my toes anymore. i have long, narrow feet and am wearing shimano shoes (are they a good choice for long narrow feet?) should i try a different brand of shoes or am i simply tightening the straps too much? or is this just normal for a really really tough ride? help me! thanks.

wear it. No really, if your foot is nice and snug but not too tight, then it's a good fit. You, like me, may need a custom foot bed. You may be pinching a nerve or maybe applying too much pressure to one spot of the foot. Is this something that happened on just one day? Have you changed something like cleats and or shoes lately? Do you ever get hot-spots on your feet while riding? Answering a few questions would help us help you.
