Damn.....something told me this was a problem that was going to require

don't see any other solution than what you suggest as there is nothing else
that I can think of that will make this problem go away. I wouldn't mind
having a larger platform those, since I find myself something riding
unclipped - like starting off into an intersection, etc. How do the Look
pedals compare to the SPDs in terms of clipping in/out and float?

No, those shoes were on close-out. But, really, all you need is a
stiff-soled shoe. No flex.
My Look pedals with the red platform have 9 degrees of float. Some people
also like the Frogs for lots of float. I also got some rubber "booties" for
the cleats and I put the rubbers on when I want to walk in the shoes. These
red cleats may get slippery feeling when walking. Ask as many people as you
can to see what their experiences have been. I am not saying Look is the
only way to go. Shimano has come out with an imitation of the Look pedal
that is rapidly gaining fans. I recently bought some Wellgo pedals for $34
that are a knock-off of the Looks, and I am interested to see how they
perform. I know that burning feeling, though. It can drive you crazy!

Before you go out and spend money, loosen up your shoes a bit. Feet tend to
swell when you ride and that could be part of the problem.

I'll try that on my ride this weekend....another metric century. Were it
not for this problem, I feel I could do the full century. But I can't
imagine endurance that pain for 40 miles (it starts up at around 60 miles
without fail, it seems).

Of course, I don't feel I wear my shoes too tight, but I'll try your
suggestion anyway simply because I might be wrong! And the swelling seems
plausible.

Last year, a guy at the LBS told me to take an extra pair of socks. He said
to stop at the rest stop nearest the halfway point and change socks. He said
it would give me a lift. Well, you know what? He was right! The dry socks
were nice, but I also think the feeling had to do with sitting down, taking
the feet out of the shoes and massaging them a bit before putting the new
socks on. Even just getting air on hot feet helped a lot.
