    Post pics of your real or generated miAdidas Barricades. Just go onto miadidas.com, click on the picture of the Barricade V at the bottom, and customize away. Then hit the Print Screen button on the keyboard, go into Paint or some other program, paste, and post them here. Post pics of your favorite combinations. Or if you're talented enough, you can Photoshop your own creations.

    This isn't just for people who actually are buying or own them already. Feel free to make your own combinations and posting what they look like here if you were to get a pair or two

    I think the reason why Nike doesn't do it is because they put out new new updates to the shoe every year or so while Adidas is every 2 years

    Thanks, didn't know he used them

    Definitely. That way people with wider feet could have a wider width option.

    I know but I was talking about the Genius and their narrow fit. I for one really wanted to like them (felt very stable, looked cool) but they were just too narrow. If the Geniuses were offered on mi Adidas, then (like the Barricade having the width options), people could buy the Geniuses in a better fit

    Well after quite a while, trying out a bunch of combinations, I finally settled on an all white shoe. Quite plain for a mi Barricade but I like it.

    I really like Tsonga's and kept coming back to them. But since he came up with them, I decided against making my own

    This isn't just for people who actually are buying or own them already. Feel free to make your own combinations and posting what they look like here if you were to get a pair or two

    I posted there elsewhere, but I'll post them again.

    [​IMG]

    Poor cellphone pic, but they're Rave Red/New Navy and New Navy/Bright Yellow. I got them because of the availability of the narrow width, primarily.

    I do like the all-white look. Might go with that for my next pair.

    Isn't that the default shoe on the site? Anyway, I made something like that but in solid black w/ gold hardwear. If I could just figure out how to capture the pic....I know you explained above, I need to do it again step-by-step when I have chance.

    Maybe I have bigger luck getting a reply here... Have any of you tried the wide option on your Barricades? If so, how wide would you say they are? Is the wider width consistent throughout the shoe, or just wider in the toe box area?

    Thanks in advance.

    HAHA you're right. Didn't really notice because I started with the grey/lime colors.

    Nice! I didn't know you can do 2 different colors for each foot.

    Hmm, I can't get it to work. I can select the Barricade shoe but then I can't find a way to start customising it. I just have 3 stages marked in the right hand panel that I can't click on. Included a screenshot.

    Hopefully i'm not being blind or extremely stupid and the link is right there (it has been known to happen)

    Those are two separate shoes if I'm not mistaken. Both are left shoes. You can't get different colors for each foot. (I think that would look weird anyways)

    you're probably not in the US, change the location on the top right hand corner to United States.

    Nice, but too bad they dont have a green (slime dosen't count)...so you could do green and gold for Oz.

    Yeah, I have two left feet. Unfortunately, I've got a pair of rights just like them that I can't use. ;-)

    I wear the narrows, which they've told me is a B width, and feels like it. I would guess the wides would be EE, which would be wider than the D throughout the shoe.

    I won't post a photo of mine - don't want anyone ripping off my design! (I will say they feature yellow, gray, black, and slime.) But I really, really like them; they're great shoes, and being able to personalize them was a blast. Well worth the extra money for shoes I'll get a lot of use from, but not something I'd do often.

    Where's the fun in getting custom shoes if you're not going to show them off?

    Yeah, come on adidasman, post a pic! If someone here rips off your design, so what? It is not like you are going to ever see or play against them in person. By this logic it would make sense to never ever wear them because someone might ask "where did you get those?"...and than you could conceivably end up playing against someone locally who has ripped off the design.

    No, I'm just a fan of the brand - I have no inside scoop. I don't see anything in advance until one of you guys gets a hold of the pictures. :)
