Just a quick update on these as a long term barricade users thought I'd try these out. First impressions definitely lights and less stability, more flexible than barricades...but Ohhh my...the insoles ripped my feet to shreds, a few nasty blisters resulted in going back to my old barricades whilst my poor feet recovered. A few weeks later and the same thing, a very aggressive insole so ended up swapping with my old shoes as couldn't put up with it anymore. Performance has been mediocre at best. On a slightly damp hard court ive slipped which could have been really nasty, never would have happened with the barricades. Grip not good. Also the wear is showing miles faster than the barricades, the outside of my right is disappearing fast and now noticed the rubber PGuard is now starting to lift from the shoe.. Only had them a few weeks. Not impressed. Will back to the barricades soon as these start coming apart which won't be that long by the looks of it.
