    Quick question to you Barricade IV users...do they stretch over time in the forefoot? I recently was amazed when I tried on a pair of size 13 Barricades because I normally wear a 14 in most Nike shoes (and a 15 in the BF III's). The Barricades felt great and I'm actually thinking of doing the unthinkable and owning both Nike and Adidas apparel at the same time (don't worry though, I would never wear Adidas apparel w/Nike shoes and vice versa). If you have experienced the Barricades to "open up" a little please let me know. Thanks!!!

    I don't think everyone on the board thinks as you do...there isn't a thread that was started that mentions or discusses the IV stretching over time.

    *bigger sigh*

    I was just being funny in my original post. There is nothing wrong with it, I just don't do it personally.

    Roger_federer, apprarently you missed this post. Are you one of the people that read just the first post and respond, or do you actually read the other posts first to make sure that a portion of the first post wasn't addressed? I think the former.

    Can't speak to the IV, but the B3 DEFINITELY stretched. Just look at the top of the shoe (over the toes). If it's leather, it won't change much. But if it's fabric, as with the B3, it certainly will (and does). I can't tell by the image of the IV's whether those "ribs" are over leather or fabric.
