    I think the Barricades that the pros have been wearing at Wimbledon are based on an older version, but with the dimples sole...

    They definitely don't look anything like the Barricade III, IV or even V...perhaps they are based on the Barricade II?

    Also, at the French, I think a majority of them have been wearing the Feathers? that's been the case for the clay court season...

    but a number of them have also been wearing the Barricade Vs with a "clay" sole...think Verdasco did....

    But this clay sole is more of a herringbone thread as opposed to the one featured in the Feathers...

    Most of the Adidas players at 2009 Wimbledon were wearing CC Feather IV with Grass court soles. The CC Feather IV was the new grass court shoe that replaced the old Barricade II Grass.
