Foot hotspots

I'm trying to diagnose some hotspots I'm getting with my right foot on longer rides - 80+ miles- but not sure where to start. I ride SPD' style cleats so use MTB shoes for all my riding.   My pedals have a small body (Retro Onza HO's) but bigger than a shimano MTB spd. 
 The hot spot appears in a single place on the ball of my foot behind my second littlest toe.

I already have superfeet insoles for arch support  and my left hand cleat is shimmed with an angled wedge but my right isn't.   Both on recommendation from a bike fit. 

Any thoughts on where to start? Obviously 80 mile rides aren't easy to come by reliably and new shoes and pedal could get expensive.
