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!

The legend continues! You can get your hands on the anticipated adidas Barricade 8+ next week. This latest shoe brings a seamless Kurim upper to the Barricade shoe line. With this new material, adidas aims to improve durability while preserving the breathability and flexibility of its predecessor.

The remainder of the Barricade 8+ remains. There is the Band of Power to lock down your heel, while the signature Stability Claws take care of your forefoot support. There’s also still a six-month outsole durability guarantee for the adiwear 6 outsole.

Check out the features of the shoe:

For the launch of the shoe, there are four colors: Solar Green, Collegiate navy, White/Black and Grey/Silver. Check for them June 27 at Tennis Warehouse!

The US Tennis Center is 5 miles from our design center, and we went there first to get things started. We spent some time shooting right in front of the unisphere. It always feels special to be in a place where so many us open champions have stood.
