I have been a long time fan of the breathe free II but have also been dealing with a pinched toe problem on the second to last toe on my right foot which is due to the snug toe box i assume. Seeing as the to problem is getting visibly worse I need a new (preferably nike) shoe that has a more open toe box. I was thinking either the new oscillates, the vapor III's, or even the asics gel enqvist even though they look bulky. Any ideas?

Wow, I find the BFII to have one of the roomiest toe boxes of any shoe I've ever worn. If you prefer to stay with Nike, you may want to try the Air Resolve Plus. It also has a roomy toe box, perhaps a bit roomier.

I would stay away from Adidas as they tend to be very tight in the toe box.

BTW, is your problem toe jamming (into the front of the shoe when you stop) or are your toes overlapping each other? The former is caused by having too much room in the toe box while the latter is caused by too little room in the toe box.

the oscillates are way worse and i suspect the vapor3 wouldnt do you any good either...i agree with breakpoint, the resolves are good and i thought the bf2 was way roomy...

I have to disagree with BP on the Adidas issue, I find them to be quite roomy in the toe box. I have always thought Nikes are too thin for me though.

hmm maybe it's that I have too much room, it is definitely a jamming situation, there is no overlap of my toes

I don't think that the BFII are that good of a shoe. They wear out entirely too fast and they're performance is definitely not worth $110. They have great styling and are, of course, Nike, which is what gets them a lot of sales. They're performance is not that great though. does anyone else agree?

I believe the biggest difference between the BFII and the BFIII is the III's have a larger toe box.

i thought they were pretty good. lasted me as long as barricade 2s did(5.75 months) and that aint bad...

i thought the 2s had a much bigger toebox than the 3s.

Sounds like a cost and durability issue. This doesn't really refer to performance however.

I think the BFII's are the best tennis shoe ever made, and I have just about all of them.

I have small narrow feet. The Breathe II's are gold. I wish the III's were as good.
