    Hi everyone,
    Just four days ago, I recently went running in a new pair of Nike zoom Pegasus running shoes. I ran on a track, and my total mileage was 3.5 in about 30 minutes.
    The next day, the bottom of my foot was in some decent pain. The pain intensified when I wore the running shoes, even while walking. The pain basically disappears while barefoot.
    It is located on the bottom of my foot, on the outside, right in the middle of the sole of my foot.
    I've done research online, and have found peroneal tendinitis, to a possible stress fracture.
    Anyone experience this before? Could it be that because I had only run 1-2 miles in the weeks leading up to the 3.5 mile run, coupled with the fact that I had a brand new pair of shoes, be causing the discomfort?
    I see no swelling, so bruising, and the pain goes away when I sit. I've felt around the 5th metatarsal and the bottom of my foot to find a point of tenderness, but had no discomfort besides the fact that I was pushing so hard.
    I actually was able to jump rope, do jumping jacks, and mountain climbers yesterday without pain.
    But as soon as I start to walk, the pain begins again. It is a dull pain that really has no specific point. Just kinda of on the outside bottom of my foot, everywhere.
    Thanks for any advice

    My best guess at this stage is to consider 'cuboid syndrome'
    It does not sound like peroneal tendonitis

    Transitioning from an old to a new pair of running shoes, especially if they are different to what you are used to can be a problem needs to be done carefully and progressively.

    Thank you. I should also mention that there is no pain if I stand with all of my weight on the affected foot.
    It seems that the pain is aggravated by the pushing off motion while walking. Because standing there is very minimal if not zero pain
