Comments: I tried on the 8+s at a store and the fit feels smaller. I normally wear size 11 but sized up to a 11.5. Even
then, they felt too tight and narrow for my toes. Still a fan of the Barricade 7s due to their fit and support. Neither the 8s or 8+s have
been suitable successors.
Comments: Ordered these in size 11 for me and 10 for my son. I have exclusively used Barricade IIs, and he has used
the entire Barricade line since IIs, currently using 8s. The three things we both found as to why we won't be using them: 1) The fit is
smaller in length than 8s, so we'd need to go 1/2 size larger. 2) Even though they are more flexible in the uppers, they are a heavier
shoe overall. My scale measured them at 16.12 oz. (size 10) 3) The arch is strangely elongated and extends toward the heel, making
the arch feel really uncomfortable.
