If you tuned in to watch Andy Murray kick off his bid to win the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, you might have noticed that’s he not wearing the same apparel as he was at the recent Master Series event in Paris. He’s giving us a sneak peek at the spring 2013 adidas adipower barricade line. We’ll get to see the rest of the spring 2013 adidas line for men and women when it releases in late December.
In his first match against Tomas Berdych, Murray sported the Semi Fitted barricade Crew. There are two versions of the barricade crew for spring. The Semi Fitted version is what we’ll see Murray wear, and as its name suggests, Murray’s top will have a slimmer fit than the standard barricade crew. To further set apart the Semi Fitted Crew, Murray’s top sports a bolder graphic on the shoulders. If you’re a fan of adidas’ usual fit, check out the barricade Crew, which will have the same technologies but a different fit and tonal graphic on the shoulders.
Though Murray wore the white based top, there will also be a dark grey version as well with the same yellow accents. The adipower barricade group will be based on a white/Dark Onix (grey)/Vivid Yellow color story for spring 2013.
On the bottom, Murray’s choice of shorts gets a bit of a makeover. Though the fabric remains the traditional woven polyester, the length is now longer. Rather than an 8″ inseam, the short moves to a 9.5″ inseam and will simply be called the barricade 9.5″ Short. It will be available in Dark Onix and white.
Murray is also wearing a new color of the adidas barricade 7.0 on his feet in a black/Vivid Yellow color.
It’s always a bit bittersweet to see another tennis season end, but to ease the pain, adidas has given us a little bit of a peek into what’s in store for us come spring 2013.
