Sportswear retailer adidas has just released the 'Barricade 2021,' an upgraded version of its most popular tennis shoe. Unlike past iterations of this high-performance sneaker, the 'Barricade 2021' is distinctly stylish and fashion-forward, giving it potential streetwear cross-over appeal.
The shoes consist of a minimalist upper, donning the brand's iconic three stripes on the interior while the exterior is printed with "adidas" in a retro-futuristic font. This model keeps the shoe's classic split sole design but adds a colored carbon fiber plate to its center. In addition, the sneakers will come equipped with the latest adidas sports footwear technology including AdiTuff, AdiWear, Bounce, Torsion, and GeoFit features.
While these shoes are intended to be worn on the court, their new, fashionable elements make them equally street-ready.
