    I recently came back to tennis after a short break, but gave away my barricade 2s due to a hole in the insole. I need new shoes and here are my choices barricade team 2, barricade 7, propulse, or breathe 2k12. Please help! I have a bit of a flatter arch but not considered flat footed. I need a shoe that will last long, is comfortable, and has good grip on both clay and hard courts.
    Btw.i am from the philippines.

    Barricade 7. They are very durable but are still very comfortable, and have good traction on either surface.

    For durability go with Barricade 7's they are probably the most durable shoe and gives really excellent traction.

    For comfort i like the Nike Courballistic 4.3's

    but i really love the barricades as i own one myself and probably the best tennis shoe in the market. But some people have problems with the arch placement of the b7's thats its a little to high but it doesnt really bother me but if you think its not going to suit you go with the nike court ballistic 4.3

    I think he can only buy one of the four he listed, maybe can only get those in the Philippines but I'm not sure.
