I'm very tough on my shoes and haven't found anything that holds up for as many hours as the Barricade 7. They are much comfier than the 6 as regards the upper while the joint protection is just as good. The only point of discomfort is the area on the inside of my right ankle but a thin strip of athletic tape cures this rubbing from the ankle collar. They are amazing value at $79, especially if you play enough to get a free pair under the warranty program.
