Gorgeous to look at; OK, to play in. I'm not sure, but there might not be as much cushioning as my prior model Barricades. All rubber uppers (not hot, though) so they should 'clean up pretty good'

Great Looking shoe. I'm not sure but I think there's less cushioning than my prior model Barricades. The upper's all rubber (well ventilated, though) so they should 'clean up good' from scuffs & such

I've tried to play in these twice and they were extremely painful. I have a wide foot but usually a D is plenty wide enough. I've had the prior version of this shoe and it was great. This hasn't broken in yet so hopefully it will give some but I was in so much pain I had to change in to my prior pair to finish the match.
4 StarsGreat Shoe
