Need some more info but... maybe shoes are too tight or not
the right size? You are using cycling shoes right? What type
of shoes/pedals are you using?

Have you ridden a racing bike before without this problem?

more info please!

I reckon your shoes might be a bit too tight or maybe
ill-fitting.

What kind of shoes are they?

Am assuming you are riding clipless pedals with 'proper' cycling shoes

shoes too tight is the most common cause but you may also need to check that the cleat position is correct

ie ball of foot over pedal axle when engaged. If its behind the axle you can get numb toes/feet after 15-20 minutes

I have had foot discomfort in my cycling shoes for years. My first inclination was to try larger/wider shoes--- that didn't help. Next I focused on cleat position-- to no avail.

Finally, in an attempt to save the 3rd pair of ill-fitting shoes, I bought Specialized BG footbeds ($20 US) to replace the cheap Sidi ones Ithat came with the shoes. Feet have not bothered me since.
