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 Barricade 2015

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.

New Balance 2015 collection

On Thursday October 23rd I represented Tennis-Buzz at a press day hosted at the Hoxton Arches, London, where New Balance showcased its SS15 collections.
With soon-to-be-released sports performance and lifestyle clothing products on show, together with an extensive new footwear collection, I was of course particularly keen to get a sneak peek of the latest tennis gear to be worn by Milos Raonic and Nicole Gibbs (amongst others) for the 2015 season.

Stealing the show was the MC (men’s collection) and WC (women’s collection) 996v2 footwear; The shoes were equipped with PROBANK, NDURE and REVLOTE technologies to enable athletes to remain light on their feet without sacrificing durability or support for grueling matches. This easy-on-the-eye product was my favourite item in the new collection.

Other stand-out, and more traditional looking footwear included the MC896v1 and MC696v2.

I was also able to take a look at the New Balance kit to be worn by Nicole Gibbs at the smart 2015 Australian and French Open’s (no word on what Milos will be wearing as yet).

All in all it was a fun event, with plenty of new products across New Balance’s range of categories such as cricket, running and of course tennis. And one thing is for sure, regardless of how New Balance tennis athletes perform next year, they’ll certainly look the part.
