    Hey all,

    I am interested in switching over to the ballistec 3.3s from the barricade 6.0s that I have now. Question is, since I can't actually try them on, I was wondering if the fit/sizing is pretty much the same. Mostly, I'm interested in length and width. If you could be specific, that'd be great too (like width in the forefoot and midfoot, etc).

    Also, I've heard that the 3.3s also mold and shape fairly well after being broken, in, how much truth is there to that?

    Thanks

    Mold?

    LOL

    Nope.

    B6 = Narrow

    CB 3.3 = GSOAT

    I have 2 friends that are very unhappy with B6 and are going to try the CB 3.3

    haha you misunderstand. I mean mold as in synonym of shape. Like it shapes to your foot pretty well after it's broken in.

    Basically, do they fit similarly, or is 3.3 slightly smaller for the same size number? Is the 3.3 slightly wider for the same size number? I basically need to figure out which size i need.

    Thanks

    What size shoes did you wear in other Nike shoes?

    I've been a 10.5 for years and the CB 3.3 are perfect with Thorlo L3.

    Feet vary, try some on.

    You can't size shoes from random dudes on the Internet.

    Your feet are unique.

    Most people say the B6 is narrow, I agree.

    Most people say the CB 3.3 are wide, I agree.

    Yes, they will mold into your feet perfectly after 2-4 hours.

    CB 3.3 I believe is narrow.

    Barricade 6 is narrow as well. Go half size up on B6 you'll be fine.

    B6 a little longer than an average shoe.

    HOWEVER! I did notice in my OWN opinion that the CB 3.3 is a little longer as well.

    I own both shoes this is what i believe.

    But over time they will "mold" to your feet as JoelDali said.
