I just got my parcel. My son and all at home are amazed!! Great shoes! The best shoes my husband and I ever bought for my son so far!!
It's a bit like wearing a Novak billboard, but I will have to say this is the best tennis shoe that I've ever worn. It provides the amount of support, especially laterally, that really keeps you grounded in your game. I don't care for super light or very low cut shoes. I'm ordering another pair soon to make sure I have a backup.
If you like traditional fit and style in a heavy, durable shoe, this is the one. The upper is one piece synthetic leather, and I am not sure how you would ever wear through it. I especially like the upper for playing on HarTru. You can wipe them off and they look like new. The sole gives a solid grip on HarTru or hard courts. Cushioning is solid, and lasts all the way through wearing out the outsole. Style wise, these are a throw back. They look like old school tennis shoes, not the running shoe look of Asics. My outsole has lasted pretty well, but not super exceptional, fairly similar to a Prince T22. My only complaint is that the toe box is a little narrow. The pinky toe on my left foot rubs a little. I know it is an Adidas tradition to put the player's picture on the tongue, but I would prefer they went back to Djokovic's logo. I do catch some abuse for having a man's picture on my tennis shoes.
In my opinion this is the best version of the Barricade shoes. Great support. Perfect amount of cushioning. Not to heavy. Very durable shoe. I play at least 3 times a week and these shoes keep on ticking.
