    Hi everyone I've played with the adidas barricade 7 for the first time because they finally put back the tennis nets where i live. So anyway I've played with them for 3 1/2 hours and started to get real discomfort on the arch of my right foot, the first 1 hour it didnt really hurt. Now the question is if i replace the insole with lets say something more softer and with more cushioning will it relief the pain?

    With B7's it took an entire day to break it in, then the arches started to feel a little bit more relaxed. I suggest bending the sole back and forth for a little, it helps alleviate the stiffness.

    Is it the inwards part of the arch? I've also had problems as well if it is. I remedied that with a older pair of insoles from my previous shoes.

    If you do buy new insoles, I wouldn't suggest the cheap Dr.Scholl's gel ones. The fabric comes off and the gel is left, which rubs and irritates your feet, caused blisters for me once.

    When mine were new I could feel the arch support yet they were not really that uncomfortable within a short time the arch support settled in and now no problems.

    Break them in first, as with all barricades you need some time to do so before playing a serious match or long practices.

    I have 2 pairs of B7. No issue at all with white/orange but has same issue with the inwards part of the arch on the Silver.

    The synthetic upper of the Silver B7 feel harder and more plactic-like. May be the materials for different colors make the different in comfort. It took me more than 10 hrs to break in the Silver B7.
