They really flopped this year with the stycon, I have seen so few Adidas the past few times I’ve been on court, just thought I’d put that out there.

They had a habit of getting rid of shoes I liked... after being acquired by Adidas. Then again the whole minimalist/low drop market kinda imploded anyways:(

Adidas killed off Reebok tennis line. Hopefully the new owners will restart the Reebok tennis line

For a kid who grew in the 90’s, seeing Reebok owned by Adidas is some weird stuff, hope they get some new ideas to help rebuild the brand

And the adidas tennis shoes the last few years have been pretty ugly and poorly fitting.
I have no idea who they transferred to the tennis department but they completely destroyed Adidas’ loyal tennis customers in two years. Bad fit, worse features(no warranty) and now they are possibly getting back on track with the barricade, but who knows how that will be.

You were never one, so how would you know?

BTW, if anything they WON customers with their better cushioned and wide fitting shoes.

:cool:

I’ve been wearing adidas for 7 years, last year with the stycon I quit. Adidas actively is doing things to make sure I don’t like their shoes, along with terribly super wide solecourts and no warranty. I’m an Asics and Nike guy now, I don’t see myself switching back to the barricade if there is no warranty and it fits bad.

It is hard to believe what you are saying, given your constant bashing of the brand, including the absolute inadequate statements regarding their shoes.

Adidas actually retained a model with a narrow/medium narrow fit with the Ü2s, but I distinctly remember you also making a big stink when they rereleased the 2018 Barricades looking for various ways to attack the company. That is not a behaviour of a customer that was wearing the same shoes for years and was satisfied with that. Btw, many popular models, including from Nike and Asics also don't have a 6 months warranty and never have. That wasn't a reason to bash them unendlessly, and they have quite a steady following.

You preferences are your choices, but if you claim things own them. I remember you saying in a thread that it is the most bashing of Adidas you could do in it, it really gives an idea what you are onto.

As for "terribly super wide Solecourts" here on this forum I have read a huge number of complaints of shoes getting too narrow or people with wide feet not having options at all. As one of these people myself, I was quite fond of the change of direction. Indeed, I bought in the last year 6 pairs of Adidas shoes (3 SCBs and 3 Ü3s) just because of that and I am worried that both models could be discontinued/replaced with such that are not as wide. I recently tried the Gel Res 8s, which are a smidge better than the Gel Res 7/SS3 that I used before (and were frankly a torture as far as fit goes to the point of giving new pairs away the moment the wide models of Adidas arrived), but still nowhere near what the SCB/Ü3s offer, so what is not good for you is good for someone else, no need to run around and bash their fit, when fit is strictly a personal matter.

Perhaps I am biased, and I hope adidas does well, I just won’t be coming back. I’m too far gone to remember the 2017 and 2015 barricades lol, and in my absence I have found better fitting shoes, specifically ones that don’t give me blisters and rubbing if I don’t wear thorlos.

Good for you. I think that everyone should be striving to find the shoe that fits him best, regardless of brand. Honestly, I cringe a bit when I read opinions like - "those shoes don't fit me well, but this brand is so and so" and then people show their destroyed feet, just because they wanted to have a TM on there. Sometimes one learns by accident that the guy who so vehemently was recommending this or that shoe actually has severe issues with it, but they don't feature in his recommendation, because that would actually dissuade people from buying this or that product. It is absolutely ridiculous from grown up individuals. Brands are basically a guideline, as they all try to do something different, be it style, fit, materials etc. Some would fit one's idea about what one likes better than others. That is not to say that we shouldn't be saying our opinions about what is out there - we absolutely should, but those have to really be somewhat balanced (best by giving realistic comparisons with things we like. Emphasis on "realistic").

2023 will be the 20th anniversary of Roddick’s US Open win and the last American singles grand slam winner. Here’s hoping Reebok comes back with a 20th anniversary Figjam.

sigh - my wallet is ready and willing if Reebok would ever retro any of their late 90s/early 2000s tennis collection. As a mild sneaker head, Reebok has a great lineup back in the day but now, they just look like a shadow of their former selves....
