    They are both known as the best of the best tennis shoes. But which one do you prefer?

    I have used both. But after using barricade II for long time knee pain due to lack of cushioning but no such problem so far with BF II. I am not hard on shoes so durability is not that important for me.

    breathe free II

    I personally perfer the Breathe free II. IMO it is the best tennis shoe that I have ever worn. The barricades are also great shoes, but I just perfer the breathes.

    i think the breathe free is the greatest shoe ever made. the nike vapor speeds are better for me, but only if i were sponsored like federer is. for my money you just cant beat the breathe frees. try to get them at a nike factory store, i got mine for 40, wore through them in under 6 months, and got a 110 dollar nike product voucher. not bad eh?

    Chiru, that is awsome that you were able to find them for 40 and get another pair to replace them. I had a similar stroke of luck where i found the red and black bf II at a nike factory store for 60 bucks. I was not so lucky with the warranty. Apparently it didnt hold up because nike had already discontinued warranties on that particular color way of the bf.

    I use to think that the BIIs were perfect other than the cushioning which was just average. After you buy a proper insole it completely changes everything as far as cushioning.

    yeah I tried to change insole on Barricade II but they got heavy and become slippery on hard courts. Also shoes has to provide some cushioning rather depend entirely on insole..
