Sneak Peek: adidas Barricade 8+ Shanghai

« 1 of 6 »

adidas pays homage to the upcoming Asian ATP Tour swing with a special cosmetic in their flagship shoe with the adidas Shanghai Barricade 8+! The Solar Gold underlay shimmers through the dark Kurim upper, accented by the Solar Blue signature adidas 3-stripe logo on the lateral side. The shoelaces and the outsole even glisten when the light hits them. It’s finished off by a special logo on the tongue that reads “China” in Chinese characters.

It looks fantastic, but how does it perform? The softer Kurim upper of the 8+ offers improved comfort and flexibility over the previous version (the Barricade 8) after a brief break-in period. The signature Barricade midfoot stability claws and Band of Power in the heel lock in the foot for exceptional support. There’s simply no better tennis shoe than the Barricade for stability and durability.

The new adidas Barricade 8+ Shanghai launches Friday, September 12th! Be sure to get your pair from TennisWarehouse.com!

Back to school fashion for the tennis player

BacktoSchool

It’s time to head back to school, and kids can get more use out of their favorite tennis gear as they head into the classrooms. These five items were handpicked by our 11-year-old model as what to wear this school year.

1. Nike Boy’s Fall Net Short: Let’s start with the basic short he chose to wear with all his tops. Having one go-to short means fewer style decisions to make on rushed mornings.

2. Nike Boy’s Fall JDI Swoosh T-Shirt: Tees are easy and can easily be worn to tennis practice after school.

3. Athletic DNA Boy’s Spring Match Chaos Crew: This performance crew makes a statement. No one is going to miss this shirt going down the hallway.

4. ATP World Tour Youth Logo Hoodie: For cooler days, this hooded sweatshirt is warm and comfy.

5. Nike Vapor Max Air Backpack: A school necessity, the backpack will carry everything they need and more.
