5 StarsBarricade Perfection

Adidas finally perfected this shoe! Still as durable and supportive as ever, but now much more comfortable--- and with the Boost technology in the heel, much more long-lasting shock absorption. Great lateral support and reasonable weight...but focus is definitely on durability and support, not on flexibility and speed but I am good with that. Sole durability is amazing...I get a solid year's worth of play by rotating two pairs and playing 2-3 times per week on hard courts. Well worth the premium price.

These shoes seem like they are made out of a durable material and I love how they play on the court. Feel a nice amount of spring in my lateral movements which helps my footwork. Recommend if you play a lot and want a nice durable shoe.
3 StarsFamously Too narrow

As adidas is known for its narrow shoes it is always better to order one size bigger than your usual pair. I usually wear a 8.5 but this time ordered a 9 thinking it would be okay. but it was still tight. I now need to order a size 9.5.
Warranty offered is 6 months for the sole...So it is a good thing.
This pair of shoes has better color than the other ones which have female color tones.
