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.
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!!
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.
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.
