Joining Laura Robson and Maria Kirilenko as the newest brand ambassador for adidas by Stella McCartney line, professional tennis player Caroline Wozniacki will be debuting the adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade tennis shoe during this week’s French Open at Roland Garros. Part of adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade Collection, the new design is a complete departure from the current adiPower Barricade. Stella McCartney and her design team at adidas did away with the traditional perforated synthetic leather upper. Instead, they applied an all-mesh upper strengthen by a flexible synthetic overlay for durability. The alteration not only enhanced breathability but lessen the overall weight of the shoe. With added support for extreme lateral movements on clay, grass, and hard court surfaces, Wozniacki can move freely through the frantic pace of Grand Slam tournaments, from the ongoing French Open, Wimbledon next month, to U.S. Open in August.
The adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade tennis shoe, along with the entire collection, will be available through adidas flagship stores, online shop, and select tennis specialty retailers next month.
