    I recently purchased the Barricade V's (women's) and I along with other people that I know have had some serious problems with it. Skin abrasions, cysts, bone spur type things...has anyone else had these problems?

    I have worn Barricades most of my tennis career and have never had these problems...

    No issues here...never felt my feet more secure in BV, and it has perfect balance of cushioning, quickness and stability. Not sure about durability yet, as it seems wearing quicker than I expected. Just a note, my feet has little arch and kind of wider forefoot.

    No Problems here. I'm playing about 8-10 hours a week on hardcourts (Indoors). I've been really impressed with the fit as it relates to play confidence so far. In fact, I never even think about them while playing.

    most likely your feet are too wide- the Barricade Vs (like most other barricades) are very narrow and can cause these problems if your feet are just a little too wide for them.
