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.
Realy good and beautiful design. Stable yet comfortable.

These shoe's design adds about 1/4" to the Ht. of the front/side of the shoe & as a result I got a blister on my ankle bone. Shoes returned.
The shoes look great & seem very light.
I've worn adidas shoes for years and this is my first return. My next shoes will be adidas too ... different model.

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.
