adidas Men's Barricade 6 Tennis Shoe
Adidas on Target
Adidas in my opinion owns the tennis footwear market for men offering quality products and great value.

Using this shoe for squash 3 times per week (wood floor court). Needed a non-marking neutral sole color, and I wanted one of the long-lasting outsoles like Nike's XDR, K-Swiss (?) MIchelin, New Balance N'Durance, etc, so this model has the Adidas AdiWear 6 sole, which my Adidas tennis shoes have and wear well on asphalt. The Barricade needs considerable break-in, they comes rather stiff, and I wore them around the house for awhile before taking them to squash, and although still somewhat stiff they wore well, no sore spots or blisters. The shoe feels very sturdy and substantial, great support, not a "light" model like Sauconys. Many shoes quickly wear out on the inside of the heel where the foot rubs against the lining, some of us glue an extra liner in there to extend the life, but these shoes have a tougher lining extending around the inside heel and forward to about the ankle bone, more shoes need that perk. After a dozen or so long hard matches the outsole shows no sign of use, I expect these will last a long time. Happy with the purchase. Nice that Dick's will price match, even online prices. Very good customer service too.
