    Looks like the women are wearing the men's feathers:

    And Ivanovic is wearing barricades (which I don't get since the barricades are so heavy compared to the feathers):

    And Ivanovic's barricades to have the stock barricade outsole instead of the full herringbone pattern...

    I don't have anything against the shoes...

    It's just that I expected the women to wear the cc divines instead of the men's feathers...

    Verdasco is wearing Barricades, too, although most of the other men are wearing Feathers. Maybe it's something from their time together :)

    And the weird thing is that the shoes have the regular outsole instead of the full herringbone...

    True, but the regular Barricade outsole isn't bad for clay. It's pretty close to a classic clay court herringbone even though it's quite different from the adidas dimpled clay court sole. The bigger issue is that the Barricade is much heavier than most people find necessary on clay.
