Ive loved my Barricade's II. One thing in particular is how durable they have been, and they're decently (is that word lol who cares) comfortable. These new Adidas Response 2 Plus look pretty awesome too, and weigh decently. TW talks about them being somewhat durable. Now im pretty sure they're arent barricade lasting, but you think they can handle tennis for me this summer season. And i mean playing pretty much 2 months full of hard-core tennis. I hope so, i dunno what im gonna do once my barricade's are done and im lookin for a change.
