Tough-wearing Adiwear rubber

This part of the shoe that gets in direct contact with the court surface is pieced together using a tough-wearing Adiwear rubber. Such underfoot features by the Three Stripes can resist wearing even when consistently exposed to different court layouts.

Tread and pivot disc

The herringbone tread pattern on this shoe appears in V-shaped grooves which efficiently keep a strong foothold on hard court. The men’s version has a pivot disc beneath the medial forefoot which facilitates in twisting and spinning. It helps alleviate foot and knee discomfort during changes in direction.

Medium arch support

The midfoot shaft is the focal point of most Barricade shoes. And for the Adidas Barricade Club, it’s the 3D Torsion system that’s responsible for providing superior lateral stability. This thermoplastic arch grants medium arch support.

The primary function of the Torsion chassis is to keep the rear foot stable and forefoot flexible during movement on the court. It is also devised to provide a reasonable foot control during jumps and slides by preventing improper flexing of the arch

Comfortable heel

Typically, the heel section of Barricade shoes gets an enhanced amount of padding to cushion the heel from impact. However, for the Barricade Club, Adidas utilizes a heel-to-toe Adiprene + for a heightened level of support and energy return.

The remaining sections of the midsole are constructed with lightweight EVA foam which helps in delivering long-term cushioning.  The sufficient amount of padding in this shoe makes it apparently an ideal choice when recovering from a foot injury.


A lightweight mesh material covers the entire upper while another net-like fabric is lined in the interior to provide maximum breathability.

Stable and durable

There are a couple of components integrated into the upper that help promote balance and longevity. Specifically, these features are the abrasion-resistant Adituff and the supportive 360-degree TPU foil.

The Adituff overwraps the toe and medial forefoot that grant the assurance of longer life, preventing immediate wear. It also helps protect the foot against injuries caused by toe drags during slides, serves, volleys, and lateral cuts. The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) foil is an added sheet that’s infused to the perimeter of the mesh upper. This laminated sheet, layered right above the midsole, protects the shoe from abrasion while boosting steadiness in the heel.
