    Can someone tell me if the Barricade 3s are good for clay courts?? If they are durable and perform well in this type of surface.

    Thanks

    Well desipite the rubber being built more for hardcourts they do have big deep herringbone pattern grooves.Generally clay court shoes use a softer rubber since they don't need the durability and the flexibility actually helps grip into the clay better.They are very stable and supportive and do well on clay, but imo are really designed for hardcourts.

    shoes last much longer on clay. I wouldn't worry too much about durability.
