Got tingling and numbness on just the tops of your feet? Loosen the laces on your sneakers. “There are superficial nerves on the tops of our feet that are susceptible to trauma from laces pressing on the area,” says Brian Fullem, DPM, a sports podiatrist in Clearwater, FL. “Try to skip crossing the shoelace over the highest part of your foot,” says Dr. Fullem.

Numbness and even shooting pain in one or two toes (usually the third and fourth) could be caused by a neuroma, a.k.a. an irritated nerve, Fullem says. Telltale signs: feeling like you’re walking on a pebble or like you have a won’t-go-away pain on the ball of your foot. Running (or any high-impact sport for that matter) or tight ski boots or hiking shoes (that compress the nerve could be to blame, too. Opt for shoes that are wider in the front or, to alleviate pressure, try an insert called a metatarsal pad (that goes on the ball of your foot), Fullem advises.
