Foot Numbness

Ever since I started riding more seriously, I've had issues with numbness in both feet starting from the toes that then will eventually make the whole foot numb. I've been reading through the previous posts about foot numbness and feel that I have tried most of the suggested solutions.

I've tried moving the seat up, down, fore and aft, tried metatarsal pads, several shoes, adjustable insoles, higher cadence, different saddles, different shoes, and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting.

The closest thing to a solution I've found is just running flat pedals combined with the highest arch support offered by the G8 Performance insoles because they allow me to shift my foot position when I notice my feet start to go numb (usually about 20-30 minutes of brisk pace or high zone 2).

One thing I am about to try is a road clipless setup as I have only attempted this with regular pedals, pedals with footstraps, and clipless SPD pedals thus far. Are there any other recommendations anyone might have that wouldn't break the bank before I seek out a bike fitter that specializes in foot issues?
