Rated 3 out of 5 by KarenKL Bring back leather Barricades!
I made a pair of the leather Barricades three years ago in black and metallic silver. I get a million compliments. I save them for special tennis games since they're past their prime. Please oh please let me have a new pair! These Stella nylon ones are wimpy looking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HE928 Cheap plastic junk
I have been a faithful Barricade customer for years now. The remodelling this past year has me giving up on Adidas and trying New Balance or K-Swiss. The cheap plastic coating on these pinches the tops of my toes in a crease when I start to walk. There is no sense of the sturdiness and grounded feeling you get from the old model. I'm sure they've used cheaper materials to reduce production costs and pass the savings along to shareholders. All athletic shoes are over-priced to begin with, and made in sweat shops, but I draw the line at paying 170.00 for plastic shoes that won't last more than a month or two. Interesting that the men's shoes haven't been changed--just the women's. Women will buy cheap, 'pretty' stuff just to look good, right? No thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DKIM Great shoe!
Stylish & comfortable shoe. Runs almost a size too big but order down and you'll be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 Barricades are back!!!
I was so disappointed when the barricades 7 came out, that I thought I would never go back to adidas shoes, then I saw these and they looked so much better and the style was so cool, that I decided to take the risk... and I must say I LOVE them!
Great support, still a bit sleek but they made it work, they are very breathable. I wouldn't say they need a break in period, but still don't panic on the first day, the material is a bit stiff, but it truly loosens up very quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjl0131488 Comfortable & Cute
Doesn't need much breaking in, reviews I have previously read say that it is too narrow but I have pretty wide feet and it was fine for me. Love the way they look and the baby blue color! I am sometimes a size 7.5 or 8 but got an 8 in these. I probably could have gone for a 7.5 but may have been a little snug.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SusanM Super Cute but TOO BIG
Many pluses: super cute, comfy, and Stella name -- need I say more? However, there must've been a serious mix up with the fit models. I've always been a size 6 in Adidas tennis shoes. These shoes are maybe a full size too big. My tennis doubles partner purchased a pair, too, and she has same problem -- too big! In short, no matter how cute and comfy, these shoes are totally useless to me if I can't wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cs2525 Love them!
Barricades have always been my favorite however some of them can look clunky. FINALLY Adidas styled a pair that is more sleek and lighter. I've gotten a lot of compliments and people asking where I got them. They feel just like my other barricades but with less weight. I am hoping there are more to come with colors and similar styles next season (maybe with some black accents?)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dropshot Diva Not narrow enough
The shoe is beautiful. I wish it fit. I'm writing this review for any narrow feeted people out there. This shoe was recommended as having a narrow fit...but, it is far too boxy throughout the arch and toe box for me. Again, my foot is super narrow. For a standard medium fit, it is a great looking shoe.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tj63 Stella Barricade - Sole wears out too fast
I loved that there was no break in time needed for this shoe, however, the shoe is already worn out after less than 3 months. The top weave has started to crack, I managed to wear a hole into the front side toe of the sole already. Very dissapointed, as I buy the barricade often. I would not purchase this stle again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Backboard Doesn't hold up
I purchased these shoes in July and wore them for only 2 months. The sole is completely worn through and the shoe itself is very stretched out. I keep having to pull the laces tighter and tighter to the point of looking ridiculous. I loved my past Barricades and just wanted something with a little flair and color. I was disappointed.
