The bottom of my feet keep hurting every time i play singles
When I play singles the bottom of my feet start to hurt. My guess is from the traction because it feels like it's on fire. Do i need to get insoles or difference shoes or maybe it's the socks ?
I have no clue right now but i can't play more then 3 sets because of the foot. I do play anyways with the pain because i like playing but i wonder if i can get this pain away ?
If i need to change shoes what shoes?
If I need to get insoles could you suggest one?
If you know what is causing the pain tell me how to get rid of it?

If this is indeed the case, getting gel insoles, or arch insoles will cure the problem. Also, if you've been wearing the sames shoes for more than 6 months and you play more than 4 times a week, I would recommend changing your shoes.

it could be your footwork or your legs muscle

is your foot moving inside the shoe slightly? try thicker socks or two pairs, or smaller shoes..

if you really think its the shoe then look for a better one like yonex, lining or mizuno.
if you have 'wide' feet i think you feel better wearing mizuno, they are good shoes really.
but before you change anything you should treat the pain first,
see a doctor then take some rest.
as i said earlier if problem still persist, it could be your footwork too heavy.
if you have a coach ask him how do you move in the court,
are you light or flat footed?
if no coach, ask your buddy to help or even video yourself.
we can do 2 to 10min footwork everyday does not mean you have a good one
its how you react when you are caught 'off footed'.
hope this helps.

let me share a true experience some 15 years ago when i was still running a pro shop
a guy complains of pain at the bottom and sometime near the heel everytime he plays baddy.
so when he first came to my shop i asked him several questions and
here are the answers:
1/ i have seen many doctors and gone through many treatments including chinese doctor, western doctor, acupuncture, x ray, many therapies, massages chinese, indian ... the last one was using a hot brick heated with salted vegetable, a traditional cure.
2/ the longest rest after treatment was one month. previously from couple of days to three weeks.
3/ for insoles, he has all even has a few custom made ones.
4/ shoes? he has purchased all baddy shoes in the market such as bata, dragonfly, topline, diadora, adidas, reebok, carlton, dunlop, mizuno, ascis, nike, yonex ....
i was speechless after that and decided to see how he play ...
after seeing him run all over the court even with god-made shoes he will still have the same pain. lol
he was flat footed!
he took my advise finally skipping and some lower leg muscle exercises.

I will try some insoles and if it doesn't work I will try the shoes
If all that doesn't work I believe it could be my foot work
I don't think there is anything wrong with it but i am a little heavy 185 pounds 5'9"
So i think it could possibly be my footwork but umm sorry for saying it wrong at the top reply I meant the front sole of the feet not the heel.
My heel did hurt but after i got footwork training it went away but the front sold of my feet still feels like it's burning

for your weight 185lbs and your height, you should work on your lower leg muscle:
calf (gastrocnemius & soleus) & shin (tibialis anterior).
