Toe cramps/numbness

When I run 4 miles, at about the 2 mile mark, my right two toes on the right foot cramp up and sometimes become painful. I run on tar on the left side of the road so there is an incline to the left.
I just bought new Saucony running shoes with much more toe room. These shoes seemed to improve things some, but, have not entirely cured the problem -- however, I have only run in the new shoes once.
When I was running 3 miles, the problem started but then went away. Now that I am at four miles, I have the cramps every time I run.
I'm worried that I may have to give up running.

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
