    I hope they come out with blue B7's. The orange/white ones are nice though. It sucks that most people said the fit was about the same as the B6. They are way too narrow.

    Did you watch the preview? I like the way the guy keeps pumping his fist like a complete noob. Way to hit a sick volley winner against that chick. Whata cheese-ball

    Well, he has got to pump himself up sometimes as he doesn't get very many chances to do that against that "chick". :)

    Thanks for the info. This is helpful. I'm hoping that the VII's are a bit wider in the forefoot than the VI's. We shall see.

    Do your's feel a little bigger in length? I'm about to hit the courts today for the first time with today but in walking around the house with them, they feel a 1/2 size bigger then the B6 that I have. However when I measure them up to each other, they're even, and even when I match up the insoles. For some reason though, I feel like I'm swimming in them a little bit.

    Wanted to know if you felt the same. I may go back to try on 11 1/2's.

    Quoted for truth . . .


    NOT!

    The fist pumping started as a joke when we were shooting videos. It has since become an ingrained habit of mine that I can't shake -- so much so that it is in danger of replacing me saying, "DYNAMITE!" too much.

    Don't tell anyone (Britt already knows, so you can tell her), but that volley I hit at 3:45 into the review was just deep, so I threw an extra aggressive pump in there to sell it. :)

    Chris, TW.

    Maybe Chris can answer this, although he never mentioned either way in his review. I recall reading a rumor a while back that they were running a half size big.

    Length fit felt the same between the 6 & 7 to me. I'm one of three to wear them here and everyone has stayed in size.

    Size to true to fit. I thought I needed a 1/2 size larger but because of the medium width, it was perfect.

    Has anybody else noticed that the barricade 7 is listed at 16.5 ounces while the VI's were at 16.7 ounces....Wasn't there supposed to be a 30gram weight reduction? wtf??

    There's also a black/high energy and a white/grey Omni-version with "Prime Blue" Stripes.

    The color of Tsongas RG-shoes is named "Ultra Green" if that isn't mentioned before.

    I did the math and it was a mere 6 grams less. Are the stats wrong, TW?

    That looked ridiculous. The guy looks like he's only been playing tennis for 6 months too.

    I think these shoes are the worst looking barricades ever. I definitely won't be buying these. I don't care how they feel, I'm not wearing shoes that look that bad.

    You think adidas will send me some B7's to replace a 6 month warranty pair of CC Genius II's I got in July? I sure hope so :) I won't know until January when I send them in though. For now, I get to enjoy the last of the genius line :mad:

    Highly doubt it. Maybe if they were another Barricade that's no longer available.

    I think so. I remember reading posts in the past that someone sent in their CC genius and got the barricade 6 in return. I don't think they make the CC genius or a newer version of it anymore.

    I was wondering the same thing. I was expecting the B7 to be 16 ounces or even a little less than that. Maybe TW made a mistake. I'm sure they will fix it.

    That actually surprises me a lot, given the fact that Murray helped designed the B7.

    Don't like the B7 colorway for this season, don't feel like paying the money for customizing, I guess I'll have to buy something else.

    I got a older Wilson all white tennis shoe online and it better then Barricade 6 or 7! Glad I looked around. Much nicer looking and got tons of compliments. I guess the old play white looking shoe is hard to find but is attractive to a lot of tennis players - especially the older people.

I guess the old plain white looking tennis shoe is hard to find but is attractive to a lot of tennis players - especially the older people who are more conservative.

    I tried them today at a store. Didn't buy them. They seem as narrow as the 6s in the front and the upper was hard and tough on the sides of my feet.
