No matter how much you empty yourself during the cycling stage of your triathlon, it's all for naught if your feet are incapable of carrying you across the finish line. Case in point are hot spots. If your cycling shoes are giving you hot spots, that nuisance in the saddle will quickly become crippling when it's time to run.
