The better option is gels packs that attach to the back of the tongue, you can order them online. The way you tie the laces is obviously important too, I keep mine really loose around the ankles, for someone just starting out, you want them comfortable, but not too tight. I think tying them too tight is a mistake most beginners make. There needs to be some bend in the ankle.
I think this is the case as when I first started all was good, I have now adjusted the laces and it seems to be working itself out, I may still invest in some lacebite pads.
