The Barricade is by now for many years, the "flagship" of the
tennis shoe line by Adidas. Above all, its high stability and durability so far
have identified the success of the shoe. That's no different in this version. Adidas
has managed to preserve the stability and robustness of the Barricade, the shoe
is lighter and altogether more 'delicate'. The new version is easier and more
enjoyable without having to make compromises. As with the previous version,
there is also the adipower Barricade with the "normal" Allcourt sole
and in the special Claycourt version, the classic herringbone pattern for clay
courts is inserted.
Conclusion: The adipower Barricade offers stability and robustness, which is easier and more enjoyable to wear.
From Stefan O. | Playing Strength: | 25 December 2012 Having played mostly Nike CB 4.3 for the past couple of months after a longer period of the hard court and clay versions of Adidas Barricade 6, the Nike shoes were simply too tight and were not giving me the rock solid stability I need on hard court. Went back to Barricade 7 and now added the clay sole version to get the same feel on clay. IMO simply the best shoes out there. I had to go half a size up though compared to most brands or they will be too tight for my toes. Was that helpful? Yes (0) | No (0)
From Stefan O. | Playing Strength: | 25 December 2012 I have used the Barricade line for a couple of years now and after a brief stint with another brand I'm back with the new Barricades. Better stability and traction than anything else out there. Was that helpful? Yes (0) | No (0)
