    I'm just wondering how much narrower the width is on the CB 4.3's vs the Vapors.

    I know the CB's are a much heavier shoe than the Vapor 9's, that I don't care so much about.

    4.3s are significantly more narrow, particularly in the toe box. The Vapors are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn, but the durability wasn't there, and I wore through the toe in less than 2 months. I recently bought the Barricade 7s and they are a perfect shoe for me - very comfortable, very durable and minimal break in period. They are basically the shoes that you get when you combine the best aspects of the Vapors and the 4.3s.

    i find the barricade kinda heavy for my liking. though the durability is there, not as comfortable as the 4.3. the 4.3 does have a narrow toebox. the vapors are nice, but if your going for durability, it isnt for you. (unless you go light on your shoes.) would say that the air max cage does the job of combining the two together.

    I basically have same idea that cb4.3 is narrower than v9.
    v9 is lighter and comfortable than cb4.3 but durability wise is cb4.3. But cb4.3 isn't that much stiff compare to previous version 3.3.
