    Barricade 6 is really durable.

    Final answer. Most durable. No question.

    Depends on where you wear out your shoes. I find the Barricades to not be durable in the toe...I burn a hole through in 2-3 months.

    Conversely, I have yet to find a Diadora shoe that I can put a hole through in less than 9 months.

    So, make of it what you will, the balls of the feet on both seem to be very durable and last about the same imo.

    everybody has their own wear pattern of shoes so no one can tell you exact answer.

    I might say that Barricade and CB is most durable but both shoes are not perfect.

    CB has weak heel protection.
    Barricade has weak toe protection.

    Have not seen any shoes which can protect both areas like CB and Barricade combined.

    I usually make a hole in toe area around 9 weeks but heel area is perfectly fine with Barricade.
    Also I can go through midsole in heel area (white form) and make a hole in toe area around 3 months with CB.

    I don't drag my toe, just have what I guess you would say "normal" wear.

    Even though I like Nike more, the Barricade 6 was the only shoe I didn't wear out in 6 months to get a replacement pair.

    to me most durable shoes is not a good thing. You want to buy something with 6 months warranty and hope it's not too durable so that you can have another pair in less than 6 months. why would you want to wear the same pair for over 6 months?

    buy a CB or something like that in clearance and then play in them as much as you can and then hope they wear out in 5 months. i bought a pair of CB3.3 for $75 and hope they wont last me more than 5.5 months so that i can renew, for a free pair.
