which is a better shoe?
For me 1.3 by far...
have u worn both shoes?
I've owned both and I think the answer is, it depends.
Both fit my feet about the same. Felt like the cades maybe had a little bit more room in the toe, but not much.
The cades are more durable I think, not by much. However, the 1.3s have a softer ride, which for me was important. So the 1.3's are my preferred shoe at the moment. I'm pretty heavy though so I need that soft ride.
I'd try both on and just pick which ones fit the best, because honestly they are both really good shoes.
This was my impression too.
I like the barricade V's a lot better. For me the fit was much better (I have a narrow foot and higher arch) The 1.3's were very flat no real definition in the arch, and very wide. Where as the Barricades were narrower and had a higher arch. I also felt the barricades performed better in every category except durability.
I thought they were both very durable but the 1.3s won me over because for me they have a lot less of a break in period. I could wear my 1.3's out of the box and not have any problems. My Cades tore up my feet for several weeks before they softened up and got comfortable.
Cades do take a while to break-in.
Of course. I would not be giving my opinion based on unilateral experience.
Barricades are like bricks, stiff and heavy.
but still better than any Vapors so far...
C'mon Dr, stop quoting me around the Net! Vapors V are still in different dimension compared to any brick that carries adidas' logo.....
sure, if you have feet like a chicken...
Otherwise, they are so narrow...it hurts...
Actually, the new Nike Lunarlite Vapor Tour is now wide – from the TW website: “Width fit is slightly wider than medium”
But they still didn't realize that a 6-month warranty is a big bonus...
For $120 (or less), I get (at least) two pairs of the Barricades...
the Vapors are meant for speed. CBs are not. That's why they're no guarantees for all the Vapors
