    I may be wrong, but I thought you've seen it before? Have you seen any other colorways?

    Maybe not. Try putting on a pair of the genius 2's. Its night and day over the b6 for breathability. Though it could use some more perfs in the toebox

    Sorry, the catalogue I have doesn't have any pics of the clothing line. It has pics of the clothing line from other sports, but the only thing tennis related is the Barricade 7.

    Intersting, just looks like a revamped Barricade V which is no problem of course.

    Thanks for the pics, the Barricade 7's rock!:) I did not like the 6's and luckily had 3 pairs of 5's to last me 2 seasons. Been waiting for this and worth the wait by the looks of it!

    Thanks for the pic cliente. Not sure what to make of it. The shape does look more like the V to me. I just hope these fit my feet better than the 6.0.

    I guess we'll know if it's closer to the V or the 6.0 when we see if Murray is really wearing them.

    haha, it doesn't exist yet, just off the drawing board, looks good on paper, will be built around a new last that makes it fit wider in forefoot and snug in heel counter, lots learnt from adizero 1 so expect it to be a better shoe all round, first samples will be seen after wimbey i reckon

    Can you tell us how the fit is? Adidas really changed things up with the 6.0 and left a lot of us BV fans in the cold. I'm just going by the picture, but the shape looks more like the V than the 6.0.

    They give you the same model you ordered, maybe a different color. They won't give you the B7, I wish they did though....

    Well, hope is free. However, I know some people sent their B5 when the B6 was just arriving and received the B6. Also, do you work for Adidas? If not, don't speak about things you don't know.

    It may be a while, considering how long it took to see the FW11 stuff. But the wait is almost always worth it.

    You won't. I've sent in outdated shoes and they still gave me the same outdated shoes. (Like discontinued) Maybe if you send in a B4 right now if you could somehow get one with a warranty in effect they MIGHT send you a B5 (they prolly still have the odd extra around there) They also might just reimburse you with the money if they don't have any shoes. They'll give you a shoe of equal or lesser value. Hoping for the B7 while the B6 JUST became outdated (They'll prolly still sell it too, like they did with the B5 and the B2) is too much.

    I held the B7 today in hand and I have to say I think its a better shoe overall than the B6. My only issue is prob the medial toe area, as the 'adiTUFF' material doesn't extend to the toe on the medial side. Also the shoe will probably be much easier to break in. From the get go, I could tell the shoe was more flexible than the B6 by doing a flex test with just my hands. And the upper seems a tad softer. As for the claws digging into the toe, I don't think that will happen. Also the shape of the heel looks less clunky than the B6. The shoe overall I think is faster.

    That will definitely be good news, as I am not a fan of the current Adizeros at all because it is much stiffer than the CC Feather IV and the model will be carried over for SS 2012. Good thing that the shop nearby me has some of the older Feathers, which I will be stocking up.

    But the word is that the 2012 Feather will be substantially changed from the 2011 model.

    Strober, I was just wondering does the rich teal outfit come in reverse as in rich teal shorts with a white shirt?

    We saw 3 colourways of the mock polo Jo was wearing at this wears FO so there is a strong chance.

    2 tees, one white one teal, same reverse out on shorts and adizeros to match, white track top with teal/green trousers, i actually think you will like what the other players will have, brighter teal than tsongas
