Hello,

I am going to buy a pair of this shoes. Currently I use Barricade II and Barricade III in size 9. I read following feedback in Tennis warehouse:

Comments: I think these shoes are great, I just bought them, but they run small so watch out. Great for durability and make sure break them in well before playing in them.
From: Dave, RI, USA, 06/06

Do this shoes really run small? Should I buy a size 9.5 instead of 9?
What does Dave mean by make sure break them in well before playing in them?

Thanks, Alberto

I buy a half size smaller in Tennis shoes because they all seem to run longer in the forefoot regardless of brand minus the S2 and Vapors(if it says to buy a half size bigger). The reviewer was vague, but after I got mine I did have to take it easy and get used to them, 3 sessions(2-3 hours a piece) because I wasn't used to the lightness and freeness around the ankle(very low cut shoe). After you get used to them everything else is too heavy and not as comfortable or maneuverable. To put it bluntly you'll love these shoes as they spoil your feet.
