The latest update to the legendary adidas Barricade tennis shoe, the new all court Barricade 8 tennis shoes offer a D-Core upper for reduced break-in time and maximum breathability. The new D-Core technology provides the ultimate mixture of stability, durability, and breathability. The revolutionary barricade claws in the midfoot provide the ultimate forefoot stability. The Band-of-Power in the heel provides maximum ankle support. Excellent cushioning from adiPRENE insert in heel and adiPRENE + in forefoot. Outsole features adiWEAR 6 for the best durability in high-wear areas. Fit inspired by previous Barricade generations.
Great looking shoes but I just played 3 times with them but second time after a long game, I end it with a blister in my right foot pinky toe, I don't know if it was because I was wearing new Adidas socks?
5 StarsGreat shoe

Amazing update to the barricade series! no break-in period, feels more comfortable than Barricade 7 model. Durability seems to be great just as always with Adidas, breathable material in the top makes it great for playing in hot days. If you are looking for stability and support, nothing comes even close. Great looking shoe in top of that!
