adidas Barricade 7 Novak Pro

Joining forces with world number one Novak Djokovic, adidas has created a special edition of the adidas Barricade 7.

Novak’s face on the tongue reminds of the classic Stan Smith logo, the dove on the medial side represents peace and freedom for his home nation of Serbia, while the mountain printed on the insole is Mt. Kopaonik where Novak met his first tennis coach.

adidas revealed a new footwear partnership with the world number one tennis player Novak Djokovic. The Serbian star debuted his Barricade 7 at the French Open this week.

The deal follows on from Novak’s personal decision to wear the Barricade shoe for many years; with all six of his Grand Slam titles achieved wearing the adidas shoe.

Made with adipower technology and cushioning, the adidas Barricade 7 allows the athlete to move and turn freely, while providing the support required for a long match.

The shoe features Barricade claws, which stabilize the foot during extreme lunges and direction changes and is micoach compatible. A Molded EVA insole offers comfort and feathered construction allows for ultimate performance in multidirectional movements. The Torsion System creates a platform for medial support and stability by strengthening the midfoot and ankle area. An adiPrene insert provides comfort and shock absorption, while an adiPrene+ insert helps forward movement.

The Barricade 7 is available now for $140 on adidas.com and at select retailers.

In this issue, Thomas Weege, head designer of adidas tennis presents the Barricade 7.0, the new generation of the iconic adidas tennis shoe.

In 1999, we committed to creating the perfect hard court tennis shoe. We imagined balancing comfort, stability, and durability in a way no one had ever achieved. The Barricade has always been about this pursuit of the ultimate hard court shoe. The distinctive color blocking has remained as a visual link throughout every generation, reassuring players that they are wearing the most stable, durable, and comfortable tennis shoe in the world.
