New for the 2014 U.S. Open, adidas introduces the adidas Novak Barricade 7.0 Mens Tennis shoe. The latest colorway in the adidas Barricade 7 continues to offer an ideal combination of durability, cushioning, and support. Supported on court by Novak Djokovic. Shoe features include a light weight seamless welded upper, and new lateral outrigger with barricade claws for stability. Improved flexibility and step-in comfort thanks to new integrated forefoot flex zone. Excellent cushioning from adiPRENE insert in heel and adiPRENE + in forefoot. Fit inspired by previous Barricade generations. To be worn at the US Open.
Love the performance aspect of these shoes. Everything, particularly the stability and traction, is incredible. However one knock I had is the ventilation.

durability, traction, stability... probably 6/5 for this shoe. But the comfort aspects like ventilation or cushioning are just not there.

I play tennis 3 - 5 times per week whether I want to or not. Mostly singles. The 7 is BY FAR the better shoe than the 8. I bought both, and my foot slides inside the 8 (causing my big toe to bruise as it slides into the front of the shoe, and then my big toe nail ends up falling out --- just wonderful !!), and it also does not give near the support. I own 3 pair of 7's as I am concerned they will not make anymore. If someone knows how to get a message to Adidas, please let me know --- THEY NEED TO KEEP THE 7 !!!
IT'S THE BEST SHOE THEY HAVE EVER MADE!!!
