I would be surprised if its footwear related. My vote is its the feet being higher affecting the circulation. Can you adjust the angle/height of the seat to see what effect that has?

I don't think it's due to the feet being higher as I have the same problem on the "Linear" and your feet are lower than your bum on those.

But I have tried adjusting the seat angle up & down and found the best for me is fully reclined.
