I'm sitting at home with new pairs of both. I have to play a tournament match at 5:30 tonight and have to decide, because I'll send the other pair back. After initially thinking that the Barricades didn't fit in the heel, they seem okay. Never wore Barricades, always wore Adidas a3 Prevails. Ballistecs are good too, the first pair of Nike shoes that have fit me in a long time. I trust Adidas durability, but like the look of the Nikes better. Nike's require much less breaking in comparatively, so since I'm stupid enough to be making this decision at the last minute, that could be beneficial. Why did I wait this long? I know no one can decide for me, I'm just venting in an effort to make a decision.
