adidas Barricade and boost technology come together to enhance the already great attributes of the Barricade 2016 - stability, comfort, and durability. Boost technology has been added to the heel counter, giving the ultimate in energy return for the most cushioned Barricade ever! The upper and support framework of the Barricade Boost remains unchanged from the already stellar Barricade 2016. The adidas Barricade 2016 Boost offers comfort, breathability, stability, and durability.
Great shoes! Good price, light, comfortable, and stable.

I bought the barricade boost and it is an improvement over the older models. Here is my analysis: 1- The shoe has a nice bounce and a softer landing, The "boost" is real. I still have two pair of the 2015 model and they are much stiffer. 2-The old barricades were usually narrow and took a long time to break in. My little toe always developed corns with the old models. However, i found the Barricade boost much more comfortable and a better fit. No corns and fast break in period. Unfortunately, I need to buy another pair of the Barricade boost and ditch my nearly new old barricade models.
3 StarsFamously Too narrow

As adidas is known for its narrow shoes it is always better to order one size bigger than your usual pair. I usually wear a 8.5 but this time ordered a 9 thinking it would be okay. but it was still tight. I now need to order a size 9.5. Warranty offered is 6 months for the sole...So it is a good thing. This pair of shoes has better color than the other ones which have female color tones.

These shoes seem like they are made out of a durable material and I love how they play on the court. Feel a nice amount of spring in my lateral movements which helps my footwork. Recommend if you play a lot and want a nice durable shoe.
