I've been wearing Barricades for ages now, and was wondering what other options were. I had two 2.5-hour matches this weekend within 45 minutes of eachother, and I experienced the toe-jamming of the Barricades that everyone was talking about. A fractured toe and lost toenail later, I'm looking for new answers. I've been looking into it, and I figure the main 6 criteria are: Durability, Comfort, Ankle Support, Traction, Ventilation, and Weight. In order of importance, my preferences are Durability, Traction, Comfort, Weight, Ankle Support, and finally Ventilation. I put durability high because of my toe-dragging habit on my serve. While greatly improved, I still wear through the toe of Barricades in under 3 months. That said, I've looked into the Nike Vapor 9 Tours, and also the Asics GR4. If anyone has any advice on others, I'd love to hear it.
