IIs, IIIs or IVs?
The Barricade III's are the best tennis shoes I've ever had. Comfortable and very durable.
I have both the 2's and 3's.
I've tried the II's and IV's. After I'm done with the IV's I'm hoping there are still II's available to go back to.
only have had the 4's....so perhaps unfair for me to participate...but i absolutely love these shoes, never have owned shoes this comfortable.
They do feel pretty good but I think the II's are more comfortable right out of the box. No break-in needed for me with the II's. Others mght have a different experience though.
Only thing i don't like about the barricade series is the heat. Man these shoes are like wearing fireboots in the summer.
only had 2 and 4. 4 is a MUCH better shoe in EVERY WAY, but there is one spot on each foot where i tend to get a blister if i play for a while...the bottom/outside of my big toe.
I get the same thing when I wear shoes that are slightly longer than what I usually use. Unfortunately, since B4s are designed for narrower feet, I fear that I'm going to get the same thing when I get my pair.
The IV's but not by much over the II
I realy liked the II's. They were comfortable and very durable. I didn't buy the III's until they started going on sale. The III's are by far the most comfortable shoe I have worn for tennis. Plenty of room in the toe but fits snugly in the heal and at the same times give plenty of support to my arch. After spending hours on the court, my feet still don't hurt. I tried on the IV's and thought they were the most uncomfortable shoes I had ever tried. Very stiff and tight in the toes. I couldn't imagine running around the tennis courts when walking was so uncomfortable.
I like the IVs, and I think they look the best as well.
I had 3 pairs of the Barricade I's....loved them except for the fact they were a bit tough on the knees. Very underrated in the Barricade lineage. Skipped the II's a have had a couples pairs of the III's. Great shoe. Not sure on the IV's yet, I might pick a pair up but you hear some people think they are uncomfortable....others love them and say they blow the others away.
Gotta go with the II.
The barricade 4s are the best because of the amazing from the durability to the traction and everything in between.
Why didnt you include the original barricades in the poll???
my favorite is probably the II's
i had III's, they broke, then i got IV's...good shoes both of them. IV's are more rigid i feel
Because they are too ugly to vote for probably!
Slight edge to the IV over the II. I didn't like the III's at all.
Anyone seen the new color IV? I'm partial to Kentucky Blue and this shoe is awesome.
I have to go with the IIs. longest lasting shoe i have ever owned
That color is HOT!!
I have owned all 3...
IVs were not very durable. Lasted less than 3 months.
IIIs lasted a little longer but I didn't find them very comfortable.
IIs were perfect.
Them's fightin' words!!! I loved the Barricade Is. The IIIs (what I wear now) can't hold a candle to the durability, stability and comfort of the EQT Barricades.
I have not tried the new 4's but own the 2's and the 3's. IMO the 3's win.
I have only tried the III's and the IV's, and I like the III's better than the IV's, because the III's are more comfortable in my opinion.
Durability and stability are about the same.
