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.
Lighter and breathes more than Barricade 7. Not much break-in required. Might be a bit stiff at front of ankle bone, as shoe edge can initially rub there. Otherwise, great support, quality, and traction.

It looks great! I loved the weight and the support that the shoe gives me. I need both because I wear a size 15. I bought the shoe because it is hard to find all of these qualities in a size 15!!!!

Tried this shoe on in the store. Amazing light and the support is awesome. Bought on the spot. Has the barricade feel, but so much lighter than my past pairs
