    yeah, everything Adidas made in the 90's are way better what it offers now, even the Adidas flower logo is cooler than the 3 stripes logo. :twisted::)

    Hey guys, I managed to just sell my used Adidas Barricade IV in this colorway:

    http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p265/kokoro4ever/3dab6f16-2.jpg

    For 50 dollars shipped ;) I think it was huge for me, since I never wore these , in fact, they are in my gym locker now , just in case I wear any nicer shoes to school, I change into these for the gym period. They are wearable w/ the treads still there, but the only thing that is probably bad about them is that one of the laces on one of the shoes might be ripped up, but I will try to fix that before I ship them out today...

    FREAKIN' A**! Nike emailed me and said my white CB 1.3s won't ship 'til Jan 13. That's the last time I ask for www.niketown.com giftcards from Santa.

    I guess I'll have to settle for HS' (lower) price on some CB 1.3s in black while I wait for the white ones to arrive.

    Nice shoes supermario343, how new are those Cage IIs? Look in great condition. So, how do you like the C.B. 1.3 on the court? I didn't like the feel as much as my Cage IIs, but I can't give a full review because I didn't get to use them yet.

    You should feel lucky you can get so many shoes ;) I have to wear out my Cage IIs before I can go grab a pair of these. Won't be getting the neon ones though.

    Haha, they are only a bit better in person, but still ugly. I am not going to change my mind either ^.^

    So, supermario343, you got two new shoes at once? The cage IIs and the court ballistec? If so, I am sure you can give us a great review of the Cage II vs the Ballistec. I want to hear that comparison really badly! All I know is that the Cage II feel a bit better IMO than the Court Ballistec , but I hear that the C.B. 1.3 needs time to get to the mold of your foot, and it takes like a week for them to start to feel good.

    Oh alright. Your lucky, I have to wear out my current Cage IIs then go for the C.B. 1.3. Of course I'd get the White/Obsidian ones though because I think you know my view on the neon ones ;)

    Dang you! :D I wish I had all those except for ballistics... I would choose the vapor VI's over the ballistics but I am starting to sort of like the ballistics. :)

    I actually am happy I got rid of my old Cade 4s for 50 bucks shipped... Shipping was a painful 10 bucks though.

    They look really funny, and not good imo. I don't like any Lacoste shoes. I think I a bit biased though, I am only a Nike (Breathe/cage) and Adidas (Barricade) fan.

    Cool pics, thanks for posting I've been looking for the actual shots of the shoe! It looks quite flashy & cool. I just don't like the black sole sides. It will look much better if that is silver too!

    The only ones I would play in would be the Gravitates. The other two are just for casual wear.

    I have not worn them yet on court though.

    From a quality standpoint, they look and feel about the same as the 2nd tier nike/adidas stuff. Like the Resmash, or the Tirand, they are not as nice as the Vapors/Cages/Barricades.

    I should put up new pics of my Lacoste stuff. I have a ton now lol.

    haha I know what you mean. I'm not going wear it myself giving it to my younger cousin (suits a teenager better doesn't it? ;) ). In case if anyone wants to buy this same shirt, make sure you get in a size larger, it is really tight fit. Even Nadal couldn't pull it off:twisted:

    It sure does suit a teenage better ! But this is coming from also a teen, but I would never ever wear that ! Maybe, my complexion wouldn't fit it. (Skinny, average height). And your right about Nadal not pulling it off, thats for sure . :)

    It actually looked alright on my cousin. He's got a nice tan and short hair. Long hair is definitely a No, No with this polo ;) .

    Yes got a pocket where the swoosh is. It's very stretchy meant for a tight fit. 5"8 I'd say at least a medium. You might even want a large if you don't like it too tight. It has a narrower shoulder than other Nike polos and shorter in length too, almost like tight tank top but in a polo look.

    Decided to break out some Lacoste tonite. In reply to the guy who asked about the shoes, they are pretty nice, light flexable, etc. I played dubs on dirt so cushioning wasn't much of an issue. I would certainly not want to wear them all the time for a training or match shoe, as I don't think they are tough enough, but for an occasional wear with the Lacoste stuff they are more than fine.

    All things considered they are better than I thought they would be.

    Will update after hardcourt singles.

    Mario, those are some nice Cage IIs and Vapor V you have there. :) I believe I only bought about 2 Cage IIs in similar color and about 3 Vapor Vs, and many Adidas Barricades &other brands last year.
