I have tried both recently and prefer the barricade since it is more durable and comfortable too me without question. I am a large guy (6'-6" and 255lbs) so hopefully this answers your comfort and durability question...Just my two cents...

I feel this shoe is as durable as vapor, maybe slightly more, and more comfortable or comparable to Boost if you need NIke product:
NIKE LUNAR BALLISTEC 1.5 MENS TENNIS SHOE

In my experience, the lunarlon cushioning in the Lunar Ballistec has a much shorter life than the cushioning in the Boost Barricade. Again, just my opinion, but the Boost Barricade is a much better shoe.

I have had a different experience thus far play tesing the Boost, Lunar Ballistec and Vapor...It may be I have not played enough hours on them yet... I rotate them equally throughout the week and have a few months on all the shoes at this point. The Boost took a lot less time to break in compared to the historical Barricade's which was nice.
 
Lunarlon does have a shorter life span than Zoom Air or the Boost cushioning system. Lunarlon starts off really soft but then loses it plush feel.

The Barricade Boost are better than the regular Barricades but it does not have a low to the ground feel like the Vapor 9.5s. The ideal shoe would be Vapor 9.5 top with Boost cushioning but that ain't gonna happen so it really comes down to whether you want, great fit and good cushioning or more support and better cushioning in the Boost Barricade.
 
Ok guys i decided on adidas ubersonic they are pretty comfy and i think they will last better than vapors so I've ordered the white pink ones that jack sock was wearing thanks for the advice though

I think you'll like them. I have the bright green colorway and like them a lot. Haven't had them for too long, but feel like they will be more durable than Vapors.
