adidas Men's Barricade Shoes
Well known for women's and men's athletic shoes, adidas released the first Barricade tennis shoes in 2000. Featuring an enlarged toe box and a large toe guard, the shoes lived up to the name. The model has been updated over the years as adidas has developed new technologies. It is now one of the most popular adidas men's shoes. Its combination of durability and stability is sought after by many—tennis players or not.Variants
Like many adidas men's sports shoes, there are a number of variants of the Barricade available to choose from. The 'Boost' adds extra cushioning under the heel, not just for protection, but also to provide an energy rebound. It also includes extra features for comfort, such as memory foam collars. The Barricade 'Club' is a more budget offering in the same line, but uses much of the same technology, such as the same rubber on the sole. This model has a thermoplastic upper that is light in weight, breathable and maintains the shoes' stability. Another model in the line, the Barricade 'Team' is thinner and lighter and therefore a good choice for players who are very agile.Technology
adidas Barricade shoes use the company's AdiWear outsole, with some models offering a 6-month guarantee for durability. In addition, these adidas athletic shoes have uppers designed to be breathable and lightweight. A 'Barricade' midfoot chassis adds stability, while the 'boost' cushioning in some models provides energy return. In addition, the company's AdiPRENE+ technology provides ample cushioning in the heel and forefoot.Colours and Materials
Barricade shoes often feature new colourways each season, with the 2017 line offering eight fresh colourways. The technologically advanced materials used in the shoes range from the special rubber in the soles to synthetics used in the mesh uppers, all combined with the goal of creating a durable, fast and comfortable shoe.Special Editions
adidas has also created a number of special edition Barricade models, including the Novak Pro, which features Barricade stability claws in its design, and the Shanghai Limited Edition Barricade, which was created in honour of the ATP Shanghai Rolex Masters 1000 tournament.
