Dead foot

New to tri at age of 40 and with realistic aims-sub 50min 10k would be nice…
However have had problem with left foot going to sleep after 5km or so. I’m 6ft, around the 14stone mark. I’ve had my gait analysed (neutral with tendency to heel strike), tried various shoes, run on tarmac, grass and woodland and used conventional laces as well as elastic, always with same result-numb from ankle down. Some feeling does return after another 2-3km but is there anyone with similar issues that’s found a solution?

    Have you tried different shoes? A wider toe box for example.

    The only time I have had similar, is with shoes that are too tight across the toes. Is your numb foot broader than the non-numb one?
