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.
Like everything, style, the way it grips my foot, a little foot stabilizer on the outer side protects from foot roll out. Had it for 2 weeks, so not sure how long it will last. Overall worth every penny. The best tennis shoe I've ever had.
