    alright people. so the adidas rep was around today....now dont get too excited. pics were not allowed. no cell phones.

    and its not coming out for a long time. they dont even know the timeline. but for those who are curious, there's lots more mesh. and maybe even kevlar!

    now that would be a drastic change to the barricade family if you ask me

    Well it's about time we get some bulletproof tennis shoes. It's rough out there.

    I still doubt they will stop teflon-tipped tennis balls.

    I've been dying to get some shoes with Kevlar soles (leather soles on dress shoes last me about 3 months, thin rubber soles about 2 and change, my Barricade teams have maybe 72 hours of court time (most of it just practicing my serve) and are already showing it in the ball of the foot)

    the kevlar wasnt for the soles. but maybe. to be honest, there was a pic, and a actual prototype shoe. and the two didnt look that much alike. its still very much development
