Best tennis shoe ever! I run around like Nadal now.,
This review is from: adidas Men's Barricade Team 2 Tennis Shoe (Apparel)
I was looking around for a cheaper tennis shoe that got good reviews but they didn't have my size so I decided to buy these shoes. I compared side by side to the Adidas Bercuda shoe which looks somewhat similar. As I looked closer, you could clearly see that the Barricade uses much more detail and much more higher quality material. For example, you could see double stitching and more mesh holes on the Barricade and not on the Bercuda. It is the little things like that which I was willing to pay more for. So glad that the other shoe didn't have my size in stock and I ended up with this sneaker over all the others.
1. Style? I love the style and the color combination. It looks like a high quality sneaker with plenty of detail and great material.
2. Fit and comfort? When I first put it on, I thought it felt narrow but once you start playing in them, they easily start to break in and fits perfectly. The comfort is very nice, the shoes feel very light and the shoes keep your feet cooler with all those ventilation holes.
3. Performance? I have worn many types of sneakers on the tennis court but this shoe is clearly the best. I am running faster from sideline to sideline as well as baseline to net. I can stop and start on a dime and not have to worry about twisted ankles. No shock from jumping as well with the cushioning.
