This might sound stupid but does anybody get really hot feet when running?

Thank you. I ran the Race for Life today and my feet got really really hot. This never happened when I had Brooks. I got these shoes recently so I just wondered if it was me or the shoes. I used to run but am back to beginner status. I will look at the shoes and socks and the other things advised when I next go to a running shop.

Hot like they feel on fire or do they sweat?

In the summer, I only run in the evenings (too hot otherwise here in th South of France) but even then I wear Nike running socks that are relatively thick in certain places but overall very thin.

You might also benefit from using those powder sprays for the feet that prevent sweating.

my friend has very very airy brooks shoes, she says it is like air conditioning envy

my feet don't overheat but neither are they cool and airy

I got them from a running shop. Saucony, no support etc. I am really struggling, obviously just a wierd thing to do with my feet. That is sad! I might investigate some new shoes after pay day and see if I can get lighter ones.

I have been running (jogging) for about 4 months and, I know the weather is hot, but my feet get so hot it is really uncomfortable. I have changed socks so just wonder if this is normal or if my shoes may be to blame. Any ideas? Thanks.
