Adidas Barricade 8.0
 
I'm not sure if this is new news, though I did a search and didn't find any threads, but here goes...

There is a picture of the new Adidas Barricade 8.0 and Stella McCartney Barricade in the June 2013 issue of RSI (Racquet Sport Industry).

I'm not sure how to post a picture (without a link) directly on this thread or I would. Perhaps a fellow RSI member could help me out.

The 8.0 features a "power band" in the heel for stability. It kinda reminds me of the Babolat shoes with the heel strap. The 8.0 also appears to incorporate a lot of mesh, especially in the toe box, though it could just be a mesh covering.

adidas also made the barricade 8.0 more wider than the previous ones.

One ounce lighter, wider, maybe less bulky due to more mesh... Sounds promising.

15.5 for a 9.5 size fit, according to the other thread.

Latest online edition of Racquet Sports industry will be your guide.

There's going to be a black version with silver stripes and white along the base and heal with red band at rear and red accent on claw and nameplate on tongue. Very attractive.

IMO, these are the most aesthetically appealing Barricade in some time.

If the silver was black they'd sound great and evoke the B5 look. The White/Blue/Silver we've seen in live pics are nice.

As for the weight, I wouldn't all get too excited yet. 15.5 is for 9.5. If that's a US size then the 10.5 will weigh almost the same as the B7 at 16.5. Even if it's a Euro size, there's still a 1/2 size discrepancy.

Main thing they need to be careful with is reducing durability. The B7s stand alone, so I'm hoping they keep the same tread, but pictures of the sole so far appear inconclusive.

Oh god.....I can't wait another month. My poor shoes don't have much rubber left and I've run out of vouchers and I don't really like any courtballistecs(minus the teal) this season.!!!!

I think the orange is an awesome colorway.

The Barricade 8's reminds me of a Lamborghini Aventador

Maybe you should get some sleep...

Seems Murray's wearing the 8s, the shoe's last is the same as the 7s so not too big of a transition.

^ Was just about to post that
