Rated 1 out of 5 by HE928 Cheap plastic junk
I have been a faithful Barricade customer for years now. The remodelling this past year has me giving up on Adidas and trying New Balance or K-Swiss. The cheap plastic coating on these pinches the tops of my toes in a crease when I start to walk. There is no sense of the sturdiness and grounded feeling you get from the old model. I'm sure they've used cheaper materials to reduce production costs and pass the savings along to shareholders. All athletic shoes are over-priced to begin with, and made in sweat shops, but I draw the line at paying 170.00 for plastic shoes that won't last more than a month or two. Interesting that the men's shoes haven't been changed--just the women's. Women will buy cheap, 'pretty' stuff just to look good, right? No thank you.

Great looking tennis shoes. Light weight, and comfortable. The only complaint I have is that they don't last very long like other adidas tennis shoes. White shoes get dirty fast since material is hard to keep it clean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Backboard Doesn't hold up
I purchased these shoes in July and wore them for only 2 months. The sole is completely worn through and the shoe itself is very stretched out. I keep having to pull the laces tighter and tighter to the point of looking ridiculous. I loved my past Barricades and just wanted something with a little flair and color. I was disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RMK577 Look Awesome!!
Fell in love with these as soon as I saw them as the colour looks so bright and amazing and the shoe is very elegant. The fit was abit shorter than my previous shoes but only took a day to break in and now feel really comfortable and very stable.

purchased size 6 but too big, returned these, they come to pick up returns from you (great service) re-ordered the 5 turned up in a couple of days and fit perfect.

I customized 2 pair of tennis shoes Barricade 7 W and was happy to be able to choose nice colors. Now the design of Stella for Barricade 8 looks boring and the joy of customizing is gone...

Rated 5 out of 5 Barricades are back!!!
I was so disappointed when the barricades 7 came out, that I thought I would never go back to adidas shoes, then I saw these and they looked so much better and the style was so cool, that I decided to take the risk... and I must say I LOVE them!
Great support, still a bit sleek but they made it work, they are very breathable. I wouldn't say they need a break in period, but still don't panic on the first day, the material is a bit stiff, but it truly loosens up very quickly!
