New for Fall 2015, the adidas Adizero Ubersonic!

adidas now has a new flagship shoe for their speed-oriented adizero line – the UbersonicThis new premium offering features a super low to the ground ride that feels lightning quick on court and keeps you completely connected to your movement. Rubber was removed and strategically replaced by mesh in specific areas of the outsole to reduce weight and make the shoe ultra light and fast-feeling. Lastly, extra TPU protection wraps the toe area and medial side on the upper to give added protection for aggressive movers.

Rubber has been removed from the outsole where you don’t need it to reduce weight.

Our experts playtested the Ubersonic a few weeks ago and we can tell you that they all really enjoyed the shoe! They loved how light and fast they were, and the black and red cosmetic they had been testing looked awesome too. From a fit standpoint, the most noticeable aspect is a pretty high arch, making them perfect for players that like having a lot of support in that area. They are similar in that way to the Barricade (for those of you that are familiar). Other than that the shoe fits pretty true to size with a medium width.

New adidas Barricade 2015 Boost

Check out our review of the Barricade 2015 Boost

In Summer 2015, adidas is injecting ENDLESS ENERGY into their tennis footwear by bringing their signature Boost midsole technology to the iconic Barricade line!

Boost has been around for a few years in other adidas performance shoes. Runners as well as basketball, soccer and baseball players have taken a liking to its benefits. First, it provides more energy return than a traditional EVA foam midsole, injecting more energy back up into your foot and making each step and change of direction quicker and more explosive. Second, the cushioning performs much more consistently, both over time and in different weather conditions. The underfoot support will last a lot longer, and no matter whether it’s in the heat of summer or the cold of winter, the cushioning and energy return remains the same. A traditional EVA midsole may get harder in the cold or mushy and less responsive in the heat.

The Barricade 2015 Boost proved to be one of the most durable shoes you can buy.

At the start of 2015, adidas released their fastest and most modern feeling Barricade yet with the Barricade 2015. No longer do they weigh a pound and need two weeks to break in. This latest version merges the signature support, stability and durability we’ve come to expect from the Barricade line with a faster, lower to the ground feel and virtually no break-in time required. Furthermore, the release of the Limited Edition Wall Pack Collection has showcased the new look and how well the design takes color. (more…)
