Shoe and Insole
 
Tennis shoes are designed with a particular purpose. I have Lotto Raptor and will get Babolat SFX shoes next week, both of them with a unique design.

So, do adding special insoles like Spenco, Cadence or Superfeet alter the shoes original design in a negative way?

That is, one is adding an external insole that was not part of the original design of the shoe. Many people like me will think that insoles are for the better but could it be the opposite?:-?

I have an adidas which I find a bit too low-cushioned. (Djokovic bright blue shoe). I simply replaced the insole with some gell replacement from a local store, and it has been terrific -- as far as feel and cushioning is concerned.

However, that Djokovic shoe had ventilation though the bottom, and original insole was mostly perforated. My new Gell blocked all that, and made the shoe considerably hotter.

I cannot feel it now (36F outside), but I know when the summer comes it will not be ideal.

I also tried Superfeet before -- in other shoes -- but could not tell the difference between them and the original insoles.

Could never add insoles in any shoe : Addidas Barricades, Nike CB 4.3 etc. My feet felt cramped.

Replacing, like the other poster was saying might be an option though...Having said all of that I do have some gel insoles, but never bothered to replace the ones the shoes had.
