Hey guys,

Just seen the new Barricade 7 and don't really like the look. So thinking of grabbing a pair of V's/6's while they are still available on the market. I still play in V's but I'm on my last pair. I can grab another pair (in white, I love the look) or perhaps grab a pair of 6's, which I never played in. If I were to get the 6's I'd get the white/black/red, I think they look awesome:

However I know responses to the 6 were mixed, with complaints such as too narrow and a less comfortable fit than the V's. This is why I never bothered with them up until now, though I like the style. And judging from a recent poll on this forum the V's are still a fan favourite. If the V's are more supportive and more durable I'd go with them again for sure.

What do you think?

Narrow is an issue, I wear Thorlos thick socks and the V's are narrow enough. Any narrower might pinch.

I mean they aren't extremely narrow, more than the V though

That's funny, I couldn't stand the look of the VI's. It's one of the primary reasons I went looking to other brands for shoes. Sorry that I can't compare them to the V's for you though.

lol I hated the 6's at first too, weird I know. I called them space boots (look a bit futuristic). Eventually I came round to them. I like the cable bit in the middle, and they look pretty sharp.

Probably go for V's again though. Any narrower would probably be too narrow with Thorlos. I think I remember checking out the 6s in the shop and they didn't seem as robust/solid as the V's, it was like comparing the Barricade to the Team.

Thanks guys

5 and 6 have nothing in common.
5 and 7 are similar

If you go for the looks only, then, you have a problem...

6 are narrower, uncomfortable...

7 are by far the best performing Barricades so far -- comfort, fit, stability, durability!

Where would you get more pairs of V's?

Oh no, the look of the 6's was just a deciding factor for me. I loved my V's, but I still went up a whole size to wear them. I thought it would be better to find a shoe that was a better fit for my feet. I went from 11.5's in the IV and V, to 11 in a Gel Resolution 2, to a 10.5 for my Nike Breathe 2k10s.

I'd look into the 7s if you can spare the bones. I tried a pair on and they felt great, certainly a roomier fit than the 6s.

5s may be hard to find now, and no warranty anymore either.

Nabbed myself a pair of white barricades UK 10 off **** :D Arrived today, look amazing when freshly new! My old pair looks very much forlorn in comparison.

Warranty isn't a big deal, I don't think you get it here in the UK anyway, and besides I don't play enough right now to go through shoes that quick!

Love the color scheme of those white black and red Barricades.

I liked the B6s a bit more than the B5s, personally; they fit me better. But I'm clearly in the minority on that one.

sometimes you can find V's on the bay, trick is finding your size.

After the 7's the 5's really feel crappy and painful (I used to love them).
Without a doubt the 7's are way better
