These are the shoes I am wearing.

I am going to try and loosen them up tomorrow. If thats not working I might go into a running store and see if they can fit me and suggest a better shoe.

Totally happens on the elliptical & stair machine, no matter how loose my shoes are.

On elliptical trainers this is pretty common. It results from not lifting your feet from the pedals as in running, which pressures the front of the feet too much for too long.

The solution is to lift your feet from the pedals frequently during the workout.

So at about the 15-20 min mark on an elliptical my toes start to go numb. Not really painful, and I make it the full 30 min more annoying and slightly concerning. Should I just see the doc and see what he has to say, or is there something I should try first?
