18 Feb Tingling Feet – Explained
-Lateral (Outside) soreness of the shins.
-Tingling ‘dead’ feet /numb foot.
-slight Achilles soreness (back of the legs)
1. Tingling of feet = incorrect fitting footwear. Size. You might need a bigger size. And wider. (The Customers footwear) Asics pictures have a ‘trussic’ structure which pinches the midsole to give a tight fit = nerve pressure on midfoot.
-Lace tension is critical. Tight shoe laces cause loss of circulation/ Numbness. Loose laces cause movement and loss of balance. Medium laces should be loose enough to pull the shoes off without untying. One you get moving for your 5 km walk – the feet will swell into the runner. All of the above also points to consider.
Conclusion: You’ll need a larger size. I would suggest from the images UK 6. *current Uk 5.
2. Tight calves/ due to softness of runners. ‘Sponge’ effect of sinking into the shoes causes overuse of the muscles and therefore tightness. It’s also general overall flexibility of calf muscles, hamstrings and lower back.
Conclusion: Floor stretches. Calf and hamstring stretching. Compression socks.
3. Footwear suggestion: Brooks DYAD Uk 6 ‘D’ Wide fit.
