Has anyone tried the new version of these shoes? I have worn 2 pairs of the previous version (2E) and I split the seam on the sides because they are not wide enough. I used some Freesole Urethane Formula Shoe Repair, and it's held for months. I really like the shoes, so I wider fit would be welcomed.

I just played in these for the second time yesterday. I have a VERY wide and thick foot that is hard to fit in most tennis shoes. These were snug but seem to be breaking in nicely. I agree with the TW description that they are a little bit long. (I found the Asics GR6 wide to fit even longer.) Definitely worth a try.

Thanks for the reply. I plan on ordering a pair. I still wear the 2E version, but I need to wear very thin socks.

The shoe was snug but had nice cushioning in 4E. This will be my shoe of choice until they stop making it.

Thank you for sharing.

So as to avoid confusion, the shoes that @mikeler tried is a different shoe.
The subject of this thread is the http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/adidas_Barricade_Classic_Wide_4E_Wh_Bk_Gy_Mens_Shoe/descpageMSADIDAS-AMBCWBG.html shoe, which costs 2x as much.

I apologize for not reading the thread title carefully. I do want to hear about the $100 version but I don't think I'd be tempted to try them unless the $50 version wears out quickly. If anything, maybe my accidental thread bumps will help get you the info desired. :oops:
