adidas Barricade 2015 Great Wall Shoe

Walls are part of every Tennis players life. We use them, we play with them, we overcome them. With the new Barricade Wallpack, adidas is paying tribute to those walls. Inspired by some of the most famous walls on earth, this shoe pays tribute to the Great Wall of China with bamboo-inspired print and red color pops meaning luck and happiness in Chinese culture. The shoe combines a supportive midfoot with a more flexible forefoot for unrestrictive movement as you play, plus full-length Adiprene cushioning.

Legendary Performance, Timeless Value: Diadora Tennis

The word Diadora comes from the greek διὰ δωρέα “dia-dorea” Which means “to share gifts and honours”.

Quality and workmanship have been hallmarks for the Diadora tennis brand from the days of Borg, Vilas, and Cash in the 70’s and 80’s, Becker, Courier and Kuerten in the 90’s and 00’s, through today. For the discerning tennis player looking for a brand based on heritage and its use of high end materials, great colors and comfort, look no further than Diadora. (have pics of Borg, Vilas, Courier, and Kuerten saved in Diadora shoe folder.)

The Speed Star K model makes use of kangaroo leather for softness, comfort and sensitivity. Use of this material is more common in soccer, but lends itself well to the rigors of tennis, offering a supple, custom feeling fit to the upper. Double Action 2 and Axeler Heel Propulsion further add to the technology features of the Diadora Speed Star. Axeler Heel Propulsion is made from Pebax, a highly elastic memory material. Thanks to a specially contoured insert the Axeler Heel Propulsion ensures maximum shock absorption during impact with the ground. A 2015 Tennis Magazine top pick!

The Speed Pro EVO offers a lightweight option with excellent breathability thanks to the use of Supreltech Air mesh and Dia Shield. Socklike fit with unitongue construction. Also continues the use of Double Action 2 cushioning and Axeler Heel Propulsion. Incredible comfort with a great splash of color! Also highly rated in the 2015 Tennis Magazine shoe ratings issue!

In addition to the latest styles of Diadora, Midwest Sports offers a great selection of past generation models at discount prices. While supplies last!



Top Tennis Fashions – Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova squared off against Victoria Azarenka in the women’s final match at Indian Wells on March 18, 2012. Azarenka defeated Sharapova 6-2, 6-3, winning the tournament. Maria’s style won us over at this match, however. Her effortless outfit is re-created here with the Nike Baseline 3/4 Sleeve Top, Nike Premier Maria Skirt and one of Nike’s most popular women’s tennis shoes, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9. We love this outfit for its simplicity, and ability to transition from a finals match to a casual Sunday match with friends.
