Do the Barricade 7's make your big toe bloody still?

    Just wondering if they do or not, because the 6's did. I didn't have much of a problem with the 5's, but the 6's would just destroy my right big toe.

    I play with the court ballistics right now and don't have any problems so I was just wondering.

    Thanks.

    The B7s definitely have more room in the toes and even the mid box than the 6s.

    Been playing on mine for a month and a half and have had no such problem. Like tennisjon said they are roomy in the toes and I have wide feet.

    lol Barricade 6 gave me bloody toe too! It even broke my toenail! You need to trim your toenails really short to wear that thing!

    It's from when you stop and slam into the front of the shoes. Seems like there's less cushioning in the 6's than in the Nike's.

    Keep the toe nails trimmed and shoes laces tight!

    It is highly recommended that you tighten the shoe laces more after a warmup.
