I only ride with real moto boots and have never had an issue with heat on my feet on any of my bricks, I have no idea if wearing something other than motoboots might allow more heat onto the feet. I always have the balls of my feet on the pegs. I also always wear a 'Stitch over my regular clothes, regardless of weather. With that, I do not get the heat effect on my calves either. I have had that issue a time or two when riding in jeans on a day in the upper 90's, backs of my calves got all red and bumpy like a heat rash. Hence, the riding suit all the time now. We don't have your humidity, but central valley heat in the 100-115 range means you need to wear something to keep the heat off you.
