The 11 year old barricade line continues to evolve. The new shoe is 1.06 oz. lighter than the last and more flexible. A forefoot "claw" provides maximum control and stability; SPINTWEB and adiPRENE reduces impact, absorbs shock and improves comfort and flexibility.

The women's version is a more elegant version of the men's 7.0. Super sleek, softer forefoot flex and lighter. Check out Andrea Petkovic in the shoes below. Great colors!!!
adidas reports that more than ever before, they collaborated with elite players in the development of the 7.0, from the initial briefing to the final sample. “Over a period of more than 18 months we tested the shoe with more than 30 professional and semi-professional players. Our product testing department spent roughly 2,500 hours with athletes to make sure the shoe is the best barricade ever,” says Graham Williamson, adidas vice president of business unit tennis. “When we showed the final samples to our players they were reluctant to give them back and wanted to play in them immediately.”
