Take a look at the picture above. Can you identify one piece of brand apparel not like the others? Although Andy Murray is in the midst of a four-year deal with Under Armour, in his September 2 match against Nick Kyrgios he laced up a pair of adidas Barricade shoes, a fact that didn't go unnoticed by either brand, especially adidas who took to Twitter to get in a dig on UA:

The story behind this Tweet is rooted in Murray's notoriously high footwear standards, something the Barricade met and that UA agreed to match. Until they did, they allowed him to continue wearing adidas. The problem is, Murray and UA haven't to come to an agreement on a selection for all courts so the No. 3 player went with what he knew for the Open. Looks like we have a real sneaker battle on our hands.
