    the barricades give me calluses and blood blisters sometimes cause they are a little too big. also, they have ok ventilation and my socks are always wet (even with two socks). And they are worn out (already used the 6 month warranty) looking for something light anyways. i saw the gel enqvists and wanted to see if they are as good as ppl say. i heard the cushioning is great but what about the durability? and help with size. the 11's in barricades were too big so a 10.5 would be perfect (US size.), should i go with the size 11 in asics as suggested by TW? cuz thats what the size conversion chart says...

    you will probably find the enqvists less durable than the barricade. barricades are the most durable shoe i have worn. the enqvists will give you better cushioning and are a little bit lighter.

    in terms of sizing, i wore a 9.5 in the barricades. i orderd 9.5 in the enqvists and they are a little big. i would go down half a size next time. i also wear thick thorlos too.
