Rated 3 out of 5 by Smax24 2015 Barricade - too narrow
I ordered these shoes about 2 months ago. They were pretty expensive but wanted to be comfortable while I play tennis. When I buy a new pair of shoes I always wear them for one or two days at home and a office before I take them to my local tennis club, that is the best prevention how not to have any blisters.
Anyway, I wore the Barricade about half of day and didn't want to wear them anymore. They are too narrow, my feet very pretty uncomfortable. I hated them. My feet are size 14. "Adidas, you have to make size 14 wider." I don't think my feet are wide at all. Plus my hills felt like the shoes might have come off any time. Can't be only negative, the shoes looked pretty good, better than on pictures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Preston1 Bit disappointed in the colour when they arrived
bit disappointed on how it looks. From the photos I thought the sides of the shoes was going to be shinny red but when they arrived they were a very dull red unlike how the photos show it up. was going to buy the purple in them as I only wear Adidas but don't think I will now as the looks are very dissaving from on line photos but over all the shoe is as comfortable as the AdidasTennis shoes always are which is why I usually buy the new ones when they come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by festivus As good as it gets...
There are some changes to this new line of Barricade tennis shoes; softer upper shell means less break-in time and new look. For me, they did hurt the inside of my ankle for a while for some time. They are a bit narrow which are fine for my feet. My size is usually 11.5 but for barricades I sometimes go up half a size and got a 12. They look good too. I'm not sure about those circles though, but I guess they have to be there.
Regarding performance, they are as good as it gets for a tennis shoe. I can say they are like a combination of Barridcade 7 and adizero feather 3 shoes. Easy on changing direction (the silver part is there to hold and brace the foot when changing directions), no slipping, hugs the foot, light and they feel low to the ground too, like a speed shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Budfox197 Much improved
This is a much more comfortable shoe vs. the 6,7, 8 & 8+ barricades. The upper is a lot softer meaning the toe box is not as hard. Also, now that the stability has been moved toward the mid/rear of the foot thanks to the new chassis, the 9 is much more flexible in the forefoot. As a result I feel a little quicker off the mark without a compromise in stability. Does feel a little lighter also and not as bulky compared to previous models. Also, I am usually a size 10, however in these I wear a 10.5, in fact in most adidas I go up half a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barney1 Barricades
So far so good. I gave up on Barricades a few years ago because they were too clunky and heavy and they were badly-designed in that they were sharp on the arch of the foot. I'm pleased to say that now they're lighter and much better-fitting. They still run small though (I had to go for 11.5 rather than 11 as the latter were too small). Will see how they go as I wear them in though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by greenkingfish Best tennis shoes i have ever owned
I am really sold on these shoes, i play a lot of tennis and well fitted shoes are a must, i was fairly happy with the earlier model but these are WOW even better, sturdy base and light well ventilated upper body, fit like a glove, i would love an alternative colour but at this price :( i will make do with the one pair, Yes i would definatly recommend.

Fairly happy with these shoes, look great, although not great choices in colours.
Fabric dot material gets dirty and hard to clean but overall shoe looks awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulH71 Best Barricades Ever
So comfortable and lighter than previous Barricades, no wearing in required, no toe jam either, just perfect. Ordered through Adidas Australia online and they arrived the next day, awesome service.
