Pain on outside of small toe metatarsel from Cycling

I ride a road bicycle with clip pedals (Look) and cycling shoes (Nike) with a molded base and 3 Velcro straps for adjustment. After riding for only 5-10 minutes, a pain starts on the outside of each foot. After riding 30+ minutes, the pain is fairly intense and I cannot walk on it after dismounting. If I continually flex the foot while riding, the pain lessens. The really weird thing is that 10 minutes after riding I have no symptoms!

I am thinking it is because the shoes are too narrow but I have never experienced this with soccer cleats, golf shoes, tennis shoes or dress shoes so I thought a post might bring some new info.

I have had cycling shoes that DID NOT hurt, but they are no longer made. Those were more adjustable, with laces and Velcro straps.

Any ideas would be appreciated!
