I've been purchasing these shoes for around 5 years and they suit my feet perfectly. They have great support at mid foot for twisting and turning with comfort on a tennis court. I find they last well and are very durable rubber soles. The added boost on this model makes it even better than before.
I love the rich colour of this top and the unique back. As with all tops with bras included, I never feel they give the support that I would like but that should not detract from a great top. It is a beautiful top and comes highly recommended.
I actually sent these back to the shop. Beautiful shoe and the material feels very good quality but is too soft for a tennis shoe. Despite them being the correct shoe size I had too much wiggle room in them and my foot didn't feel supported because of the level of give in the material. Everyone is different so I wouldn't say don't get them but they were not the right shoe for me and I've gone for something more solid around the foot.
Most shoes give me blisters the first time I wear them, these did not. I play tennis everyday at a high level and am looking into D1 colleges I can play for so I am very particular about my shoes. These are worth the price and are very comfortable!
Na vele tennisschoenen geprobeerd te hebben ben ik een aantal jaren geleden overgestapt op de Barricade lijn. Inmiddels al het derde paar. Absoluut de beste tennisschoen die er is. De Boost toevoeging, die ook in hardloopschoenen zit, is een supertoevoeging. Minpunten zijn er eigenlijk niet!
On first wearing these you will notice a locked in feel which people will mistake as being too narrow. I have sore feet after a few games and it's obvious they will need to be broken in. Once that happens I'm sure it will be worth it. The stability and structure of the shoe means you wont roll around at all. I have gone from the adizeros which didn't last long at all but these appear to be made of sturdier stuff. I hope they live up to expectation.
Another excellent barricade with something special added. The boost technology makes for added comfort and protection. Have found they don't need so much breaking in. The supplier is excellent , soft but tough. Responsive to quick turns and sure footed planting of your feet. Typical excellent bArricade quality enhanced by boost technology.
The extra cushioning in the heal really has helped with my plantar fasciitis that I have suffered with. Short story: I got plantar fasciitis while wearing Asic clay court sneakers which were like wearing slippers, comfortable but no support. I switched to Adidas Barricade with Super Feet inserts on the recommendation of a doctor and it went away. When they wore out, I bought the Barricade Boost and had no problems. I wore them out and bought a pair of Asics for hard courts and the plantar fasciitis came back. I finally got my replacement boost barricades and instantly I knew it would give me the cushioning I needed. These are the only sneakers I will wear now, I learned my lesson.
Right out of the box, these shoes were very comfortable. The boost cushioning helped reduce heel pain. The shoe offered plenty of support and stability, but slightly needed more arch support. I just used premium over-the-counter sole inserts for my high arches.
These are by far the most comfortable tennis shoes I have ever worn, lightweight,comfortable fit and keep your feet good supported. Me and my son loved these shoes. These are our 18th pair of shoes " Barricade ".
Its comfortable, and fits well. The issue is that when I am playing, and moving hard, the sole of the shoe slips and starts to fold. It is extremely frustrating and ridiculous. A $140 pair of shoes should not have the soles slide around and mess up. No other tennis shoe does this.
