In its long history, the Adidas Barricade has always been the most stable and resistant shoe on the market; however, this twelfth version (or the 2021 edition) has been designed to carry on the legacy of adidas' most famous tennis shoe. One of the features also present in previous models is the Torsion System, which creates a very stable ride and resists constant changes in direction on the field. This update features an asymmetrical lacing system, which holds the foot in place and protects the laces on the midside. The comfort of the shoe has been significantly increased, with the use of expanded foam inserts in the heel region and with the BOUNCE 2.0 midsole along the entire length of the shoe, for those who spend long days on the field. This shoe also features Primegreen, a series of high-performance recycled materials that make up the upper at 50%.
- Upper: One-piece upper with asymmetrical lacing system, neoprene tongue and hidden laces on the median side. The midfoot features RPU slip protection and the toe cap features Adituff for added durability. 50% of the upper is made from Primegreen recycled materials.
- Midsole: BOUNCE 2.0 midsole along the entire length of the shoe, with TPU Torsion System at midfoot to maximize lateral stability.
- Outsole: New ADIWEAR rubber compound for maximum durability. Reload herringbone design to improve abrasion resistance in high-wear areas and to the side for hard surfaces.
