A special clay outsole featuring a full herringbone pattern makes this the ultimate shoe when hitting the clay courts. adidas have utilized a one-piece outsole in this version so the outsole covers the torsion midfoot shank to prevent clay buildup and to make for a smoother slide across the court surface. Look for the majority of adidas sponsored touring pros, including top 10 player, Andy Murray, to Barricade Clays during the clay court season. The Barricade 7 offers the same excellent support and durability its heritage is known for while being introduced in a lighter weight, more comfortable package. Along with a classic 3 stripe look, the Barricade 7 offers an all-new seamless upper construction for better comfort and fit, keeping break-in to a minimum. The lateral outrigger is updated from the 3 claw stability feature to a more flex-friendly system. A great choice for the player that is serious about his tennis footwear. adidas micoach compatible.
