Can foot pain be from wearing an over-sized running shoe?

Yes

Shoes
This is due to the shoe sliding back and forth and your foot position is incorrect in the shoe

Can an over sized running shoe be the cause of my foot pain?

Yes

If shoes are too large you feet will slide around in them and you will not be receiving proper support in the needed areas

Dr. Frank Pettrone answered:

I get foot pain while running. Should I raise or lower myheel?

Usually no

Foot_pain
Raise the heel if there is pain under the heel or at the heel attachment of the plantar fascia. If it;s tender there and painful on stretching the foot upwards use a heel lift in the shoe. Ice bath at night is also helpful , Forefoot and arch pain perhaps could use an orthotic OTC cushion. make sure there's np more than 250-300 miles on your shoe.
