    Pffft, like I'd know
    I would look into the Adidas Barricade series.

    Any of the Barricades....but from my personal experience I found the III and IV to be the most durable.

    received my barricade 4s today and just got back from a couple hitting sessions....they feel pretty good...they seem to run a half size small compared to nike

    Make sure you send your shoes back to Nike for warranty replacement, the Cage has a 6 month outsole guarantee.

    Prince T10 are nice, they don't run as much as the Nike Breathe Cage's. But I would suggest the Barricade's, they're a bit pricey but they great shoes!

    they're supposed to fit true to size...i wear 11 and they feel great...i think it's just the way your feet are...but back to his question...the barricade 4 black and red edition is cheaper and more readly available than the rest so i'd go for those

    sounds like buying shoes with a warranty is a must cuz you can run through them so quickly. how many pairs does the warranty work for? only the first pair? or can you send the replacement pair back in after you wear them out?

    Since you play so much (wish I could be you), I would get a shoe with 6 month guarantee.

    Are they still honoring the 6 month warranty on the BIIIs? If they are and price is a consideration I would get these. Otherwise BIVs are the way to go.

    I don't think so on BIII but you have to be really hard on shoes to worn out BIII within 6 months... hands down who can do that
