Right out the box, these shoes didn’t feel good. Instead of enveloping the foot, I feel like I’m standing on top of the shoes instead of in them. No heel support, a tight fit and laces just long enough to tie a bow. Played 3 times with them and still not broken in.
awesome shoes...will buy them again and again
I've worn Barricades for many years and they've always been the most stable shoes I've had. Break In time has thus been a bit long, but this new shoe features a mesh upper which provides much less break in time and is still pretty stable. The price just makes it that much sweeter. Like the traditional white color!
This shoe has the stability and durability that makes it a 5 star investment. Comfortable and light weight. The fit was perfect, no break in necessary. The sole felt a little "sticky" the first few times on the court, might just be a new shoe issue. As always, Midwest service is second to none.
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.
Realy good and beautiful design. Stable yet comfortable.
i like the durability of this shoe
run larger than previous model barricades.a little boxy in instep toe area.other than that great hope they wear in streatch out some.very light
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.
Great shoes! Can't wait until I order another color No break in required
It looks great! I loved the weight and the support that the shoe gives me. I need both because I wear a size 15. I bought the shoe because it is hard to find all of these qualities in a size 15!!!!
Tried this shoe on in the store. Amazing light and the support is awesome. Bought on the spot. Has the barricade feel, but so much lighter than my past pairs
