Outfit builder: Start with the adidas Barricade V bargain

One great shoe, two awesome looks

We are offering the adidas Barricade V Classic in mint for $49.95 for our Mother’s Day sale. That’s an amazing deal. There aren’t many shoes currently available to offer comparisons to these adidas shoes. The Barricade V is truly unmatched in terms of stability and durability. Plus, the cushioning is plush. Be warned, however, if you’re not an initiated member of the Barricade V club, take note that you’ll need to spend a good week to two weeks breaking in these shoes. Sure it sounds like a lot, but trust me, those efforts are rewarded in a big way.

I’ve picked a couple of outfits, one for training and one for match day, to match these shoes. For training, I went with an Under Armour ensemble. I like the Charged Cotton (that’s what CC stands for) Novelty Tank in black. It actually looks grey because it’s on the sheer side. Charged Cotton is really comfortable and technical as well. With this tank top’s sheer quality, pick a fun sports bra to go underneath. Pair it with another affordable Under Armour item, the Play It Up Short. These are super comfy but don’t have ball storage so if you’re training on the court, pair them with a compression short underneath or tuck the ball into the back waist.

For match day, Tail’s Coastal Serenity collection is a nice match to the mint color of the Barricade V Classic. I like the Athena Tank, especially with the back detail, and the Tia Skirt is a mix of a mint green and jade, so the outfit is cohesive without being too matchy matchy.

If these outfits aren’t your cup of tea, did you know you could search our apparel offerings by color? Check out all of our green tank tops here.

Happy Hitting!

Sneak Peek: adidas Y-3 Collection

200251888-008adidas has teamed up with award winning Japanese fashion designer, Yohji Yamamoto, to create Y-3, a bold, original and confident line of apparel and shoes for the tennis world. adidas was excited to introduce Y-3 to tennis and seeing that Paris is one of the most fashion-forward cities in the world, doing so at the 2015 French Open made perfect sense. Each piece helps construct an attitude and sense of power for the player wearing it as you will see when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic debut the line this year at Roland Garros.


“Together with adidas we created something that did not exist before and completely projected the future. My desire was and is to make sportswear elegant and chic. adidas is a very personal inspiration to me…it enriches my creative life.”

- Yohji Yamamoto
