    A friend of mine told me he just saw Tsongas FO top and he said the whole shirt is dark blue with teal only on the shoulders. I hope this is not true.

    Can you confirm or deny this Strober.

    Cheers, I suspect the two tone red/yellow top is verdasco's.

    Are you nikehike btw? :)

    I would assume so but Strober did say Verdasco would be in yellow for the French so nothing is certain.

    No to nikehike.

    Alright, but I think you mentioned in the past your were an aussie and have the Verdasco jacket from spring 2011 and so it's a bit of coincidence there's a vid matching the assertions on his youtube channel.:)

    I said I have the 09 collection. I found it under my bed, new with tags.

    Let's steer back on topic.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your friend is right. Its a very deep dark blue with red piping on the side and teal shoulders.

    The teal isn't even rich teal. Its more like hospital teal. But the barricade line is looking so damn good

    Ok... just talking a long hard look at the pictures and it does look like orange. Similar to the dark orange zip crew from Edge FW 2009.

    Barricade taking the same design cues from this year. Instead of intense green pops, they're going with orange pops. Orange/Blue & Blue/Orange looks real nice!

    Still missing one color combi (probably for FO12) for the Adizero and Barricade crews. Adizero has Yellow/Orange, White/Orange, and a strange White/Grey. Barricade has Orange/Blue, Blue/Orange and White/Orange.

    Do not listen to the pretend know it all. I sent a pair of Barricade 5s back and they gave me 6s. The 6s had been out for 2 weeks when I sent them in. To say it's not going to happen is just someone trying to sound more important than they are.

    Thanks for the pics Gasolina. All the 2012 stuff looks great. I really like the design of the Roland Garros stuff. It's always interesting to see if the actual products end up looking as good as the drawings.

    The adizero crews are sick and so is the RG shirt.

    The red/white/black stripe barricades are the best.

    The adizero feathers blow.

    Gotta admit, I'm a sucker for Blue/Red shoes, and those B7's strike my eyes!
    I thought someone said before that adidas was changing the style of the Feathers? I like the orange/yellow pair, but colorwise they remind me of the Verdasco Davis Cup ones...
    Anyways, thanks Gasolina!

    Looks to me like the "red" is actually orange; what do y'all think? Nice work, Gasolina - the RG gear is especially sweet. We'll see how well they pull off the orange/yellow combo; that can be tricky.

    Well Strober did say the SS11 line was orange, so I assumed it was orange.

    The RG crew is actually a dark blue. My PC must've messed up the colors when I pasted to a jpeg. But I agree with Babolast here, interchange the dark blue and teal colors and you've got one mean crew.

    As far as the orange/yellow combo, it screams CHINA to me. I might have to get the white/orange adizero short to go with it. The shorts matche everything from SS11 as well as my 2009 FWEdge deep orange zip crew.

    Strober (not sure) did say that they changed the "mast" of the feathers to allow for a wider fit. Maybe the cosmetics stayed the same.

    So it's the Adipower Barricade now? I guess the Barricade apparel line is going to be renamed to Adipower then?

    They're aligning the shoes to their basketball line. Adipower Howard, Adizero Rose, Adipure

    They're doing this with all their lines it looks like, the Predator recently became the adipower Predator to fall in line with the adizero F50 and adiPure football boots.

    The part I find interesting is that the current trend toward "adi-" everything - adiPure, adiZero, adiPower - just emphasizes the fact that we here in the US say the name of the company incorrectly. I'd say "ah-dee-DAHS," personally, but no one would know what I was talking about...

    Doesn't that one gray adiZero crew seem out of place? Nothing else that color in the entire line, no shorts that coordinate. Weird. It's too dark to be the Wimby shirt - any thoughts?

    It still seems a trifle out of place; it doesn't go with anything else, not only in the adiZero line, but in the other lines. You'd think there would be an orange pop on there or something, just to tie it in with everything else - like the intense green was in SS2011.

    Reminds of the grey from summer 2008. One of the best crews ever.

    I can't see the picture but I'm guessing that's the crew Verdasco wore for FO 2008?

    It's actually a greenish-grey.

    Anyback, back to the out-of-place grey crew. The adizero jacket is grey and orange, so we may get a grey short. Remember, the catalogue had only three crews for both barricade and adizero, so there's room for one more.
