I purchased these shoes a week ago. I wore them the very next day for a match and everything felt great. Break-in period, practically none existent. They are sturdy but comfortable. My feet feel protected. Great price, great looks.
Shoes were comfortable the first time I wore them. The support for the arches and heels are excellent which I need because I had both knees replaced. The price for these shoes is a steal.
Compared to my past shoes of Nike usually, these shoes only took about 2 days to break in and not have sore feet. The edges of the shoe are a little tight to the ankle though. They bite into the skin around my medial malleolus and heel as a result from being so tight. They hold up well in terms of durability. I've always struggled finding shoes that last long, but these have been doing very well. The style is really hard to beat. These Adidas Barricades are really nice looking.
The Barricade is a stiff shoe that provides much needed lateral support for tennis. This color combo is trendy. Like any Barricade you need to be careful with the breakin period.
Great shoe. My son is a competive, ranked junior in Texas. Holds up better than other shoes. He trains 2-4 hours a day plus tourneys almost every weekend. Outsole lasted a little over two months. We have now sent to Adidas for 6 month warranty. We will see shortly how smoothly that goes.
Light weight, feels like I have been wearing this for a long time.
