Cool pic! When do I get to review the new blade?
So, are you saying we posted this pic in the wrong sub-forum?
Hmm... who is that? He's wearing adidas... Maybe it's new apparel for the Shanghai Masters?
New Adidas collection for the Masters?
You guys planning on medieval sword fight ? What does the winner get ? make sure chris doesn't die. I like his racket and string reviews.
I think the sword is a paintjob.
Wilson Blade ?
Looks like Andy to me.
Why the topographic map, though?
It's difficult to tell from the picture... is that Robbie Williams, Colin Farrell or George Clooney?
Wilson Blade Already?!?!
If its a racquet it would be the new Dunlop line available on pre-sale, by timing if not by image.
The blade does not seem cryptic enough if it is the Blade.
Topographic image is a reference to nature, which is a Dunlop thing at the moment.
Sword equals the radical breakthrough with the re-design.
TW staff implied that it's not related with rackets.
He wears Adidas shorts so it might not be other apparel company.
Adidas new winter line or Andy Murray's special edition to celebrate his first grand slam title
It's unusual that TW release this kind of announcement...it should be special thing haha.
it is in the shoe and apparel thread though?
I'm guessing Andy's apparel, with topographical pattern like he had camo for the US Open. The picture is called Warrior Teaser...
It's a new Adidas Barricade called the Warrior. Boom.
Pretty nice looking shoe, too. Much like his black/orange USO version but with added Samurai-like details and such.
Yes, but NO.
..... really? :O
Yep. If you use your google machine, it's there.
Yup saw it too.
Similar to last years dragon edition. Last years was much better in terms of color, but the design this year is much better
Good job finding these JGads! But honestly I'm not impressed right now. It looks basically like the Urban Sky/Gold with a different logo and a texture to the material. TP lists the colorway as Black/Orange but it looks like a dark navy and gold to me. Of course this could just be my computer screen.
How come when I click on the link in the OP I don't see a picture but just a Japanese pic upload web site?
So it's this year's version of what started out as the Shanghai YEC shoe.
You were so right.
It turns out it was really a samurai katana.
Just like the Dragon last year, it seems they release these special editions just before the Asian leg of the tour.
first look: so plain, just another black and orange shoe
second look:................ dang, pretty slick shoe!
Isn't it about time for a new idea, Adidas? How many years in a row is it now with the samurai thing?? Barricade 4, 5, 6, and now 7..........yawn
Average at best and I'm losing interest in ALL black shoes:|. The Londons and USO, and classic white/blk stripes are on my hit list
Video to the Warrior!
My first thought was that maybe Prince is coming out with their first new racket since bankruptcy and were changing the color scheme from white to black.
It's not Samurai.
The Chinese in Shanghai would not be thrilled with a Japanese motif.
I like the detailed design, just wish it popped more (maybe Gold throughout the whole shoe). I like them...don't love'em. If you're going to release a LE shoe, go for it. Maybe not so much like Asics, but go for it.
I only wear mostly-white shoes for tennis. I have one black pair of 2k11s for clay use but my other pairs of 2.3s, 4.3s and B7s are all in white.
I don't like the design of these Adis.
The best looking one is still the B-IV with the dragon graphic. It was available in red/gold and black/gold....I liked the black/gold better but they were both awesome.
To be honest, I'd just as soon buy one of the other B-7 colorways that TW has on sale right now.
Sup - Adidas = ankle issues right?
j/k, not a fan for that price
