Adidas Barricade 2021

You can thank me later
Thank you.

The Ü4 looks very promising: Lightstrike cushioning , and upper similar to the Ü3s, but with the sock like collar of the Ü2s. The best of everything, it could be an amazing shoe.

The Barricades are without any details, but the midsole is obviously some kind of extensive cushioning. Probably Cloudfoam or Bounce. It looks very interesting.

Excellent colour ways, as always.

:cool:

damn, they look a bit ugly to be honest. although I did think that about the SCBs when I first saw them as well, and now I like them quite a lot.

I guess this means SCBs will be getting discontinued from next season after all. might buy another pair...

I hope not: they have a completely different fit than the Barricades of old.

Two things that Adidas should do, IMO:

1) Keep the fit of the Ü3 in the Ü4s
2) Keep the SCB

:cool:

I hope so too, it deserves a good send off with some funky colour options I think. The SCB options have been a bit lacklustre this season.

However I doubt Adidas will give 3 premium stability shoe options (Barricade, Stycon, as well as the SCB) for the 2021 season, regardless of the different fits. We don't even know the fit of the new Barricade anyway, could be a similar fit to the SCB.

Anyway we'll find out soon enough!

meh - the new barricade looks rather "uninspiring"...... maybe needs to see real life versions.

Pictures? Are they on adidas’ website?

Both look oddly shaped to me, but I guess they could look better in an actual
Model.

Where did you guys see the new barricade?

You can find the catalog for 2021 fall/winter really easily on the Adidas site - I can post a link but I don't want that to get deleted?
It has pics of the new ubersonics and barricades (the spring/summer catalog doesn't)

Ooh slightly unrelated but I noticed there's a new SCB colour in the spring summer 2021 catalogue. Looks like they'll keep it alive until releasing the new barricade in the fall winter period in any case.

Okay, I was just looking at the 2021 Fall/Winter catalog and I can't seem to find it. Can someone give a page number or something?

It looks like the barricade 8 quite a bit with the shank shape and foam shape. All I need to know is if it has an outsole warranty and a boost version, and I will come back to this abusive relationship adidas.

Is this catalog online? It is probably me, but I can’t find it. As a fan of both ubersonic and Barricades I’m very interested
Yeah, I can't find it either. I found a 2021 Fall/Winter Adidas catalog online but it doesn't seem to be the right one, I don't see any Barricades. And page 7 has customer service and rep. names and numbers.

Hopefully they are good shoes. I just picked up a pair of Kswiss Hypercourt Supreme. Stil have room for other options, but I needed at least one pair of shoes Stat:)

Adidas tennis catalog has a date of August 1st, so pretty much no.
Was trying to find the catalog myself with no luck this morning.

But this confirms what I was looking for.

Probabaly misinterpreted MM/DD format for DD/MM format (i e. they took 1st Aug for 8th Jan).

I’d actually like to see someone wearing the dazzle outfit in your photo - but not near an open range zoo during mating season - looks kinda cool in an outré way.

Imo - that doesn’t look very Barricade-ish. (I love Barricades and I still have one or two pairs left)

Sole Court Boost has been an interesting diversion, and I do like them on hardcourt, but has never been the barricade-slayer. In fact the only shoe to do that could only be... the next Barricade?

(Ps. put the stycons on for about 30mins around the house then sent them back, not for me.)

I loved the Barricade 7 (aka Novak) and wore it for seven years. The Barricade 2018 gives me knee pain even if I wear orthotic insoles. Wonder what the Barricade 2021 will be like? I’ve now become an ASICS Gel Resolution 8 user and am waiting to see if Adidas can pull me back to the Barricade camp.
