Welcome to our first release! Every month from now on we will present to you our personal highlight.
It’s June and Roger, Novak, Angie and Co. are fighting for the coveted trophy in Wimbledon. The motto of Wimbledon: ALL WHITE. What could be more suitable than this classic white edition of Ultrafly?!
This shoe is the new flagship of the Nike shoe model range. The elastic shoe collar ensures a special feeling and adds a certain something to every outfit.
The sole is completely new and can’t be found on the Zoom Vapor or Lunar Ballistec. Strategically placed Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot offer plush cushioning under the foot. We could even tell you more about all the technical highlights such as the new lacing system and breathable material… let’s leave this for now.
The shoe feels extremely light and comfortable. Just give it a try and discover the new technology. In our opinion, this shoe looks fantastic – particularly in white.
adidas now has a new flagship shoe for their speed-oriented adizero line – the Ubersonic! This 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.
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.

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.
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…)
