The adidas Barricade is back! Coming from a long history of being the most stable and durable shoe on the market, this 12th version (or 2021 edition) is designed to carry on the legacy of the most successful adidas tennis franchise. A key feature carried on from previous Barricades is the Torsion System, which creates a very stable ride and will hold up to the most aggressive changes of direction. This update features an asymmetric hidden lacing system, which provides secure lockdown and keeps the laces protected on the medial side for hard court sliders. The comfort has been enhanced with foam pods in the heel region for step-in comfort, as well as the BOUNCE 2.0 full midsole for those players putting in the long hours on court. This shoe features Primegreen, a series of high-performance recycled materials, where 50% of the upper material is recycled content.
- Upper: One-piece textile upper material, with an asymmetric lacing system, neoprene tongue, and hidden laces on the medial side. Medial side features tough RPU to protect from foot drag, and toe-cap equipped with Adituff for added durability. Primegreen – 50% of the upper is recycled content.
- Midsole: Full length BOUNCE 2.0 midsole, with Torsion System TPU midfoot shank to maximize lateral stability.
