adidas has unveiled the ‘Barricade 2015′ tennis shoe a few weeks ago. Here’s our review of the latest model in the Barricade line. Thanks a lot to our reviewer Loic, and adidas!
First of all, I love the design, the electric blue with silver side stripes, symbol of the brand. These very stylish shoes can surprise by their originality.
The Barricade 2015 is very comfortable, stability is excellent, it sits well in the foot. The shoe is multi-surface, I could appreciate its grip on greenset and on clay.
adidas combines comfort and aesthetics in its new Barricade. I recommend this shoe and I’ve got to wear it for my upcoming tennis matches!
adidas a dévoilé il y a quelques semaines sa nouvelle adidas Barricade 2015, et nous l’avons testée pour vous. Merci à Loïc et adidas!
Tout d’abord, j’adore le design, le côté bleu électrique avec les bandes argentées, symbole de la marque. Ces chaussures très lookées peuvent néanmoins surprendre par leur originalité.
La Barricade 2015 est très confortable, sa stabilité est excellente, elle tient bien au pied.
La barricade est multisurface, j’ai pu apprécier sa tenue sur greenset ainsi que sur terre battue.
Adidas allie ainsi, dans sa nouvelle Barricade, confort et esthétisme.
Je recommande cette chaussure et compte l’adopter pour mes prochaines parties de tennis!
adidas has unveiled the ‘Barricade 2015′ tennis shoe – the latest model in the Barricade line. The new model is the most complete reimagining of the design since the shoe’s inception 15 years ago. It’s lighter, more flexible and available in an all-new Night Flash colourway.
adidas modeled the new design on the extreme playing style of some of their top Barricade players – including Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Ernests Gulbis and Kei Nishikori – creating a shoe that can deal with the sharp directional changes and slides that characterize the modern game. The Barricade 2015 provides players with unbeatable stability and durability.
The Barricade 2015 in the all-new Night Flash colourway will be available on the 1st December on adidas.com and selected retailers.
Every year in September, 50 European countries take part in the European Heritage Days, a programme that offers opportunities to visit buildings, monuments and sites, many of which are not normally accessible to the public. For the first time, yesterday, the French Federation of tennis opened up the Roland Garros stadium and museum free to the public as part of Heritage Days, and of course, I was there.

Waiting to enter the museum, you could still see the Davis Cup semifinals poster and the French and Czech flags atop Court Philippe Chatrier.
The permanent exhibition showcases trophies, players memorabilia, a few videos as well as some infos about tennis history and the future Roland Garros stadium expansion.
You might be disappointed if you’ve visited the Wimbledon museum, Roland Garros museum is quite small, with less content and interactivity.
Below, the trophies presented each year to the winner of the men’s singles (Coupe des Mousquetaires) and women’s singles (Coupe Suzanne Lenglen):
