Adidas continues their celebration of the 15 year anniversary of the release of the first Barricade with the fourth installment in their Limited Edition 2015 Wall Pack collection. This version pays tribute to the Great Wall of China as the ATP and WTA tours head to Asia to close out the year.
Weaving through China’s vast topography and spanning over 20,000 kilometers long, the Great Wall stands as a symbol of pride and structure of protection. According to adidas’ footwear designers, they wanted to look beyond the watchtowers and take inspiration from the revered bamboo that surrounds the wall. The deep green color represents the lush countryside while the graphical elements on the upper are designed to reflect the strength and perseverance of bamboo shoots. Lastly, the lucky Chinese color of red is used throughout the shoe.
As for the shoe itself, the new Barricade 2015 could very well be the best one yet. A shoe line that’s normally been synonymous with long break-in periods and stiff materials, this latest version is ready to go right out of the box and is the softest, most comfortable Barricade of recent memory. While still possessing the stability and durability we’ve come to expect from the line, the 2015 version takes it to a whole new level when it comes to out of the box comfort and flexibility.
