As temperature starts to go beyond about 70°F in daytime, I find my shoes, which are quite comfortable in cool seasons, a bit snug.
It's just me? Are there anyone else who have similar experience?

I believe most people's feet will swell somewhat throughout the day. I'd wager that in warmer months this could be exacerbated, or perhaps the sweat from your feet would make them more sticky and give the impression the shoes are tighter.

Yes. And you may want to watch your blood pressure too.

To add, you may be retaining too much fluid, which can elevate your blood pressure. Common foods popular in Japan can be high in salt. Check with your Doc if you think you have any reason to.

Corny, but . . .

. . . the old wives' tale of corns hurting before a change in the weather is true. Feet, and in fact pretty much all of the body, tends to swell a bit when the barometric pressure drops. The more precipitous the drop, the more one notices. It is most noticeable with the feet, as they are incased in shoes that won't give. Hence the pressure on the corns against the inside of the shoe.

Never heard about warm weather alone having that effect, though. However, warm air is slightly less dense than cold and might exert a tad less pressure on the surface of the body.

Shoes may feel a bit tighter in warm, humid weather; so may shirt collars--an effect heightened when it's especially sticky out.

Lots of walking and standing will also cause feet to swell.

OTOH, over the course of a day, your clothing (to include shoes) can stretch a bit after prolonged exposure to your body's pressure, heat, and moisture. A shirt collar or a shoe that feels tight when first buttoned or slipped on in the morning will often develop a subtle bit of "give" by the evening.
