Expert Review

Around most tennis clubs if you ask men which shoes they're wearing, you'll hear the word "Barricade" over and over. The latest edition to Adidas' Barricade line is the 8+ which has a breathable upper and superior heel cushioning. The tread is a traditional herring bone and the sole is extremely durable and comes typically with a 6-month durability guarantee.

Weighing 16.4 ounces (based on a men's size 10.5), you'll notice the shoes are little heavier than some other options. My sense is this shoe is a little less comfortable than the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 (also on the list), but you can grind the Barricade through all your practice sessions better. If you have the opportunity, compare the various versions of the Barricade. They're all similar but each has nuances that may fit your own foot and needs better.Rating: 5/5
