Anyone like these shoes? I read the reviews and the feedback and decided to pull the trigger..


My barricade 3s ran out of cushioning...

I've been using Barricades IV untill last year. I'm using Sht 305 CL now and I like them: they are very confortable and less bulky than Barricades IV and let me move with confidence

I got a pair. I am usually a B III guy. I found the 305's light and well cushioned. I also liked the way the tongue is connected all around the foot. I think they call it "sock-like." They are good on clay as well as hard courts. I was concerned for their durability as I usually like the outsole warranty, but mine are lasting well. (I am a toe dragger.)

The 305 is a huge improvement over the BIII but I still like the 304 & the 304R better than the 305. The 304's were more comfortable. The 305 seemed a little tight in the toe box.

In my case, I didn't find the toebox tight on the 305. Anyway, what's the difference between the 304 & 304R?

Very little difference between the 304 & 304R. The 304R is the updated version with a little more rounded sole and about an ounce lighter.

I have the 305 now and its a bit tight... I thought these were made for wider feet.

I had the same problem with the BIIIs when i first got them to, i think i just have to break them in a little. Hopefully all goes well.

Does anyone know how to revive a shoe? My uppers and such on my BIIIs are in good shape but the cushioning is gone. Where does most of the cushioning come from? The insole? Can i just put a new insole in so my BIIIs last longer?

cushioning (90% of it) comes from the midsole. once that is gone there is no way to bring back the cushioning properties of the shoe. wearing shoes that are like that can do a great deal of damage to your body over time - there is nothing absorbing the pounding except your body. you've done yourself a great favor by buying new shoes. keep the old ones for gardening or something.

I haven't played in the 305's yet and still using the BIIIs. I have noticed that my legs are hurting every time i get done playing. I think its time to start wearing the 305s around a bit to break them in and then switch over.
