    I was looking around for a tennis shoe since my regular shoe was dying, and I found these two.

    I am stuck between these, please help out.

    B6 pros
    comfort
    durability
    traction
    price

    V8 pros

    lightweight
    style
    available

    B6's cons are V8s pros, and vice versa. Which one is better? Thanks

    i would probably go with the barricades. order a half size bigger because of the smaller toe box. Barricades are the ultimate hard court shoe and feels great. plus you cant beat a 6 month guarantee haha

    actually, comfort is a pro of the v8s because the barricades are a lot stiffer and require a long break in period.

    I don't agree with you on this, my barricades really didn't require a "break in " period, and as far as comfort goes much more cushioned and more comfortable than any vapor past or present. If your looking for a lighter shoe with less cushion and support then the vapor would be the way to go.
