First off, don't tell me to use the search engine. What I want to discuss is the "old" b6 vs. the "new" b6.

The first difference I see is the new tongue with 2 lace eyelets instead of just 1. This has got to help with the tongue slippage that a few of us reported. So.....who has a new barricade and wants to tell us about the difference?

Pics? I have not seen any b6's with two tongue grabs.

Edit: nvm just saw on tw. I will be getting some b6's tomorrow at the tennis shop so if I see the new ones i will comment.

Ok, I just looked at the pics of the newest colorway versus the older ones and I don't see what you guys are talking about. Help me out.

See how there is two tongue holders on this one, instead of just one?

Went into the shop today and could not find the new barricade 6's. I think the only difference is the tongue holders though.

Thanks for the pic Tsongaali. The slipping tongue was my only real complaint with the murray colorway. My black and whites only have one tongue loop and actually stay in place. Anyway, I'm glad they are still making improvements.

Weird. Optical illusion or manufacturing anomaly?

If you look at all the other pics of the same colorway, it only has one.

I'm still struggling with tongue slippage on a couple of pairs. Seems to depend on how I break them in. I would really enjoy that extra tongue eyelet.

These black ones fit different than the other colors, too
I tried these on at my local store and could wear an 11 in these black ones.
I have the Murray blue/acid buzz, a mi adidas custom and the white/black/silver all in 11.5
The black ones fit more like the B5

Yeah I have some bad slippage as well. However I have always had this with every shoe so it doesn't bother me anymore.
