Rated 3 out of 5 by KarenKL Bring back leather Barricades!
I made a pair of the leather Barricades three years ago in black and metallic silver. I get a million compliments. I save them for special tennis games since they're past their prime. Please oh please let me have a new pair! These Stella nylon ones are wimpy looking!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjl0131488 Comfortable & Cute
Doesn't need much breaking in, reviews I have previously read say that it is too narrow but I have pretty wide feet and it was fine for me. Love the way they look and the baby blue color! I am sometimes a size 7.5 or 8 but got an 8 in these. I probably could have gone for a 7.5 but may have been a little snug.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dropshot Diva Not narrow enough
The shoe is beautiful. I wish it fit. I'm writing this review for any narrow feeted people out there. This shoe was recommended as having a narrow fit...but, it is far too boxy throughout the arch and toe box for me. Again, my foot is super narrow. For a standard medium fit, it is a great looking shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cs2525 Love them!
Barricades have always been my favorite however some of them can look clunky. FINALLY Adidas styled a pair that is more sleek and lighter. I've gotten a lot of compliments and people asking where I got them. They feel just like my other barricades but with less weight. I am hoping there are more to come with colors and similar styles next season (maybe with some black accents?)

Rated 3 out of 5 by SusanM Super Cute but TOO BIG
Many pluses: super cute, comfy, and Stella name -- need I say more? However, there must've been a serious mix up with the fit models. I've always been a size 6 in Adidas tennis shoes. These shoes are maybe a full size too big. My tennis doubles partner purchased a pair, too, and she has same problem -- too big! In short, no matter how cute and comfy, these shoes are totally useless to me if I can't wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amyG great support
These Barricades provide great arch support and seem to be more light weight than other versions of this shoe.
I drag my toe while serving so would like to see more durable material in that area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tennisbuff Size Matters
The shoe is great but I bought two pair
one for my daughter and one for me. We are both true to our shoe sizes.
She wears and 8, I a 9 and both pair were too big. We had to return them for a half size smaller. Love the look and the color though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tennisfan5 Very Comfortable
Have not actually played tennis in them yet, but felt really confortable immediately I put them on. They are lightweight and am keeping them for indoor use and sunny summer days.
