    A couple of weeks ago someone uploaded a picture of Tsonga wearing these new shoes.... I've been trying to find out what they are. And here it is...

    [​IMG]

    They are the new unseen Adidas "Adizero". Tsonga was the first player to test these shoes and this could be one of the only pictures of the shoes around. They are an ultra light weight shoe that will eventually replace the Genius. If i'm not mistaken they are part of the 2011 range....

    p.s. Babolast, still havent found out much about the 2011 clothing, but i'd have a good guess that the Edge range will be sporting some red colours...

    Adizero? Sounds cool to me.

    About red in the 2011 line, the colour on his shoes looks more salmon then red so we will have to wait and see.

    I knew it. They just seem soo much like the Geniuses and Tsonga will be wearing the Edge line at the USO anyway.

    Adidas are soon to release the f50 AdiZero football boot (or cleat or whatever you call them over there), so it seems to be part of their new lightweight shoe focus. The boots are insanely light, much more than any of the Nike light-weight boots, so will be interesting to see what they come up with for tennis

    After looking on youtube after you've mentioned these boots, look what i've found

    [​IMG]

    The stripes go horizontally just like on the ones Tsonga's wearing. It must be a family line or something for speed as you've said.

    I've forseen this for a while, and it's been a long time coming. I guess Adidas went a grew the balls to finally incorporate soccer technology or at least the general idea of the shoe and make it into Tennis shoes. If they did do it with these shoes, then they'll be a hit. Alot of strikers in soccer desire an ultra light weight boot, hence why many use the Nike Vapor. Its so light and molds right to the players foot. If Adidas is making a lightweight shoe with the same base idea like that, then it will no doubt in my mind be an amazing seller. I haven't seen really one stable ultra light shoe in Tennis. The Genius is amazing, I love it, but something lighter than that would be even better. I've heard about the Diadora Speed Pros, but I havent seen them getting too much love, so I strayed away. Hopefully this will be an ultra light, stable tennis shoe. If its the same general idea for a shoe as the Nike Vapor, which I love when I play soccer, then I'll buy a ton of these shoes in my size.

    There should also be a Adizero clothing range. It could pottentially be replacing the edge range but i'm not certain. I might have a few special pics for you all in the next few days...

    2011?? If Adidas is introducing a new soccer line it would be this summer when the world cup takes place. And the tennis line may come sooner.

    The Tsonga shoes may just be a one of a kind tester though.

    Tennis and soccer lines work on the same Adidas technology but are completely different, when they choose to release new stuff has nothing to do with each other.

    There wont be any new Tennis Adidas stuff until 2011. (Different colours obviously.) But, the 2011 range should be something brand new. Along with the shoes....


    Yea, the photos are for everyone!! Just Babolast has been begging for a while!!

    adiZero tennis stuff? Awesome! I have always wondered when they would start to make adiZero stuff for other sports than just running (there have been some extremely lightweight adiZero long-distance running shoes on the market for many years).

    adidas update the Predator football boot every two years around the Christmas period before a World Cup/European Championship. F50s don't have a specific release pattern afaik. Goalkeeper gloves are updated every Christmas.

    So would this adiZero shoe be a rival for the Nike vapor?

    From the pic you have a feeling it will be pink for spring for the Edge shoe and clothing (Adizero...).

    Verdasco would look great in pink!

    I hope so but pink/purple "Ultra Beauty" Is the main colour for Fall 2010 so I doubt they will use a pink for Spring 2011.

    Ultra beauty is purple though. The color on tsonga's shoes is baby pink. Anyway, if it' not pink, then i'm guessing yellow or orange since it's been a long time since edge guys have wore those colors.
