Andy Murray aligns with the Dragon in Asia.

Adidas Barricade 6.0 Dragon Edition 1 Check out Andy Murray's new kicks. Just out, they're the adidas Barricade 6.0 Dragon Edition, a fierce warrior like change-up to the tennis shoes Murray has been wearing this year.

The new issue celebrates the Chinese Year of the Dragon (2012), a nod to the culture of the country hosting Andy in October. 

Adidas Dragon shoe heelAccording to legend the Dragon symbolizes good fortune and power. A dragon personality is free spirited, driven and self-directed.

Murray looks to have been born during the year of the rabbit (1987) so some dragon karma might be a good thing for him.

The shoe's metallic finished outer is outfitted with dragonlike scales that help the shoe breath (looks a little like armour too). A tough looking exterior for a durable shoe.

A red on black dragon-inspired print covers the outside of the tongue and heel collar. A bright red dragon symbol adorns the heel and tongue.

Retail price is $120.00 USD.
