I wanted to know which people of the these, footprint or price ladder, was in their opinion better?

Better in the sense that it helped give clarity to your trading and decision making ability quickly.

Apologies in advance if the wording is not great or if anyone is offended by the topic.

I would avoid both of them altogether, but if I had to chose one It would be the DOM (or price ladder as you call it).
The dom is fast and allows you to see what is happening in real time, with footprints you will see pretty much what you would see with candlesticks, but you will have the feelings of certainty because you have some extra information.

I used both in the past and with time I found that they are misleading.
You don't want certainty. You want to be nimble and change your mind easily.
