Comments: This shoe is the best Barricade that has been produced so far. First, they changed the toe box and
made it more spacious. This is good so your feet don't feel jammed, the previous Barricade model came to a point in the toe box.
Second, they put some cushy material underneath the insole and also they put in a higher quality insole, finally! Third, the
material that they use is more flexible than the previous Barricade models and this means a more comfortable shoe. Last, the
tread and traction of the shoe is excellent. The 7 really gripped the court from the very first time I used it. Right out of the box
this thing is so comfortable and feels broken in. It only gets better with time. You've hit a home run with these shoes, Adidas. I
challenge you to keep improving them!
Comments: This version of the Barricade is significantly more supportive and slightly heavier than the previous
version. Opinions will vary, but I like the feel. A very comfortable and stable shoe however I also agree with others about the
uppermost shoelace eyelet -- it can dig into the top of my foot if I lace the shoe all the way up, which I normally don't.
Comments: I have bought 4 pairs of different Barricades. Earlier versions were heavy, a bit, hot but hard wearing.
This latest pair are unwearable for me. The hard plastic bar at the back presses into the achilles tendon. I tried not using the top
eye hole on the laces but this did not solve the problem. I persevered hoping they would break in, but the plastic vertical bar will
never soften. I have never had a problem ever with my achilles tendon or any other part of my foot but these shoes stopped me
playing tennis for a couple of weeks
Comments: Excellent comfort right out of the box - except for the metal eyelet at the ankle. But other than this one
pea in the blanket stack, this is a great shoe. I prefer low to the ground shoes, and this is a little high, but it still feels stable and
Comments: Great shoe, very comfortable fit, been using them for 2 weeks and so far no signs of wear or tear. I play
3 times a week on hard courts.
Comments: This was intended to be made good but there are design flaws for sure. Do not buy this version, this is
a very unconfortable shoe at the ankle and feels like a hard boot. Doesn't seem to break in.
Comments: I just bought the Baracade 7s and I was hesitant about these shoes due to the awful remarks. I wear a
size 16 and I don't have a huge selection but I thought I would give these shoes a try. First practice and the shoes were tight
(narrow) but I just needed two practices to break them in. Now, the shoe fits great and I don't have to wear insoles. Some of the
comments on this shoe should be reevaluated because the shoe is actually a good shoe.
Comments: Don't know where all the negative feedback is coming from or maybe I am wearing a completely
different shoe, because I think the Adidas Barricade 7 is phenomenal! This might be the best shoe I have ever worn. I have a
regular width foot with a normal arch. I find the stability and the traction to be amazing on hard courts. The all seamless upper
has a supple yet supportive feel that envelopes the foot. I can move around with confidence that the shoe will not slip or turn.
The ventilation in the hot California summers is better than I expected and is sufficient, however my Nike Air Max Cages do a
better job in the AC department. I have owned them for about 5 months and the out sole is just starting to show wear in the big
toe and outer heel area. Overall, the comfort is great and it should be a must buy for all aggressive tennis players.
Comments: I usually play with Nike but I wanted to try the barricade 7.0. These are really hard to play with, I felt
like I was moving slower!
Comments: Worst court shoed I've ever worn. The top of the shoe rubs both ankles and is extremely uncomfortable.
I wouldn't recommend buying these shoes!
Comments: Be warned, these can feel like a size too small during the initial fittings, but they should flex and loosen
nicely after. Haven't played on court with them yet (my court's being dug up) but even light trials confirm its a very stable, grippy
and responsive shoe. The claws resist lateral movement quite strongly, so I'd be careful before going full-competition-slide mode.
Overall, a tough, no-nonsense shoe that pays for athletic and quick tennis.
Comments: Warning! I have worn Barricades for years, and the only issue I have ever had before was with the
narrowness of the shoe. But after wearing them in, it's always been a great fit for me. However, this shoe has a significant design
defect, the inside eyelet is too high and cuts into the area of your ankle, right above the ankle bone. I had to take out some
kitchen scissors, and cut off the top eyelet. If you don't want to do that, stay away from these and look at the Asics!
Comments: Occasionally I will get a pair of Barricades where the eyelet is in a weird spot. In maybe 12 pairs of
Barricades, maybe three have had that issue. I think it's just luck (or bad luck of the draw). That being said, I love the sturdiness of
this shoe. I have a wide foot and always wear men's shoes, but even in men's styles, the Nikes are too narrow through the middle
of my foot. Not everyone's feet measure the same from toe to where the narrowing of the arch area starts. (That's where the
discrepancy in reviews come in). The durability is poor, but that's why I love the 6-month outsole guarantee. Playing 10 to 20
hours a week, you will put a hole in this shoe (and any other) in less than two months.
Comments: Whoever was in charge of putting rectangular metal eyelets on these shoes needs to be canned from
their job at Adidas immediately. Worst feeling shoe I've ever worn in my life (tennis or otherwise). If you like the feeling of sharp
metal digging into your ankle, these are the shoes for you! I give them a 1/100 - just because the look great, other than that,
pure crap. And I'm a huge Barricade fan.
Comments: I thought that the decreased weight and improved grip the shoe has on the court was a major
improvement over the barricade 2.0s that I really liked a lot after I broke them in. Maybe I am still breaking these in but after
about an hour of play, the metal ringlet at the top of the shoelace hole, on the left foot, it digs into my ankle bone on the right
side causing bleeding and severe discomfort. On the right foot, the ringlet digs into the left side of my ankle bone causing similar
bleeding and discomfort. I am willing to tolerate this while I break in my ankles and develop callouses in this area because of how
much I like this shoe. Except that I feel that given other posts about this same problem, why doesn't Adidas just make softer
ringlets or a more padded tongue and take care of this obvious design flaw. I wear these shoes all day long because I teach tennis
and I still like this shoe.
Comments: Great shoes, but I put a hole through the bottom in a month. I play about 6 hours a day very
aggressively. My old Nike Courtballistec 3.3s lasted me at least 3 months. They don't get holes in the side thanks to the adituff
pad on the outside.
Comments: I bought my first pair of Barricade 7's two weeks ago. After wearing them twice I threw them in the
trash last night. The inner top portion of the shoe rubs on the inside ankle bone, creating blisters. Despite wearing bandaids and
wearing two thick pairs of socks, the shoes rub my ankles raw. Last night after seeing two blood stains the size of a quarter
coming through the socks, I figured it was time to ditch these shoes! Other than the poor design in this area, I did like the support
the shoe provided.
Comments: I have worn Asics, Lotto & Nike shoes in the past. The Adidas Barricade 7's are the best I've ever worn.
They are stylish, comfortable, stable, and durable all in one. Well worth it!
Comments: I've worn nothing but Barricade's since the 2.0. Sometimes the new version is better, sometimes it is worst, in my opinion, it is still the best option out there. Within two minutes of putting on the 7.0, it dug a hole in my foot beneath the upper left eyelet. Did Adid
Comments: Excellent comfort right out of the box - except for the metal
eyelet at the ankle. But other than this one pea in the blanket stack, this is a great shoe. I prefer low to the ground shoes, and this
is a little high, but it still feels stable and good.
