Adidas Barricade 6.0: Not Just a Shoe

The term “barricade” is defined as, “to shut in and defend,” which is exactly what the Adidas Barricade 6.0 was designed to do. Just like Nick Hardwick, lineman for the SD Chargers, guards his quarter back, Rivers, or the sweeper on the soccer field defends his goalie; the Barricade 6.0 protects the foot. The updated version of the original Adidas Barricade has been improved and Adidas has implemented many technological advances in order to shelter and defend the foot, just like a barricade. The Adidas Barricade 6.0 is offered in both men`s and women`s versions; both varieties offer maximum comfort and protection and accommodate for different styles between genders.

The Upper
Designed with a textile lining, both versions of the 6th edition Adidas Barricade 6.0 offer the adiTUFF™ TPU toe protection guard to save the toe from abuse on the courts. They are designed with perforated leather and a padded mesh tongue for maximum breathability and comfort. Adidas has also employed stability claws to ensure steadiness throughout lateral movements and quick direction changes during an intense match. The external heel counters deliver added support of the foot.

The Midsole
The midsole of the Adidas Barricade 6.0 contains a molded EVA insole that can be removed if needed. The EVA insole along with the adiPRENE insert in the heel contributes to added relief on the foot and also provides impact protection. The TORSION System assists the foot with surface adaptation and extra support.

The Outsole
The outsole of the Adidas Barricade 6.0 is comprised of non-marking rubber and adiWEAR 6 for toughness on the court. The full herringbone pattern along with a forefoot pivot point ensures traction on all different court surfaces.

A serious tennis player requires quickness, agility and power; but none of that would be possible without the right shoe. With all the technology that Adidas has poured into the Barricade 6.0, it has taken on a new identity. It is not just a shoe, it’s the defensive line. That is the kind of protection that you can count on with the Adidas Barricade 6.0.
