    Must be a new adidas model - with the stripes going horizontally. Interesting. I'd guess he's testing it out for 2011.

    I'm going to take a guess...

    Tsonga as some of you may or may not already know that he will be wearing the edge gear for fall (lead Edge). So, i'm guessing that these shoes will be the new Geniuses for 2011. A poster called Strober said that Adidas for 2011 were going to get rid of the Genius and replace it with something new, with a different name. Also, the heel cushioning at the rear on that shoe is very similar to the one on the Genius 2's.

    Wtf? They look like Vapor IV's with the red stripes right before the green. I guess that i'm going to have to buy all the Genius II's I can before Adidas gets rid of them.

    they look like adidas shoes because the heel looks like the barricade.

    I'm guessing the horizontal stripes have to do with the new, weird stripe laws on tour?

    There are no laws on the angle of the stripes. Just the size. The 3 stripes were deemed a logo of Adidas and therefore had to coincide with the size ruling for logos. The direction is unimportant.

    Also, look where the Speedcut thing normally is on the geniuses. On this one there are 4 stripe/threads instead at the same place.

    I was watching his match today at IW and was just wondering, (but couldn't tell) if he was wearing the same shoes in his match today as he is in this picture. If they are the same shoes does anyone think they could be the Barricade VI's? Just a thought.

    Tsonga was wearing the new Barricades today in his match, but they still look different from the shoes posted earlier in this thread.

    i just watched a video of him playing at the bnp paribas open and he looked like he was wearing either the new barricades or the cc genius' 2 (highly doubtful)

    I don't like Tsonga's practice shoes at all. But the new Barricades sure are nice.

    I just thought it was kind of obvious since Tsonga will be switching to the Lead Edge and the heel of the shoe is the same on the Genius 2's. Also, the speedcut thing has lines instead in the same place.

    Yes, I am pretty sure they are the new adizeros. Reference search for "adizero", they will be available on TW 25 December. I believe you can also see them on Chris in one of the racket reviews recently. There is also a pic floating around of Verdasco in them as well. Interesting shoe, looks a little high off the ground. Either way, at least the Genius II will go on sale.

    They're called the Adizero Feather. They are available now in Asia/Aus in the black/green and black/pink colourways already.

    I tried some on the other day and they look like they were inspired a little by the Vapour Tours - having very thin lightweight upper material - except Adidas fixed what Nike got wrong - they still have plenty of side-to-side support.

    Note: I always wear 9US (42.5 European) and these were way too small for me in that size - so you need to go half a size up (assuming the scale is similar the whole way through the sizes)

    They're definitely mean looking shoes.

    nah bros...

    those are kswiss 100%

    i heard that monfils got him to join the swiss crew. apparently those are his new prototypes that are resistant to fire so he can slide better on grass and/or the us open courts (clay). spoke with the rep. he confirmed. Actually they are nikes. diadora to be exact though. I heard they are water proof for added durability.

    TW had these posted very briefly a couple of days ago; they're gone now, replaced by the pink and black/green colorways. These orange ones must be the Roland Garros shoe, based on the clothes we've seen on here.
