adidas’ Barricade keeps getting better

Adidas_barricade_v_3 We’ve seen these on Ana Ivanovic, Anna Chakvetadze and Maria Kirilenko. What more could they do to the good ole Barricade, you ask? Aside from numerous technical differences, the Barricade V offers improved ventilation, a lighter feel and more "bling" than the Barricade IV. The silver and aqua blue accents make these pop. You’ll love the stability and if your foot runs medium to wide, you’ll enjoy the snug fit. We had heard that there was a break in period for these but our tester actually put them on and ten minutes later went into a U.S.T.A. team match and won! What more can we say?
