The adidas SS16 Energy Pack is inspired by goddesses and conquerors. After the release of the adizero Ubersonic Aphrodite for women, this unique limited edition collection now gets a mighty reinforcement with the Barricade 2016 Alexander for men. The Barricade Alexander proudly carries the name of one of history's most extraordinary commanders: Alexander the Great. Unstoppable, formidable and victorious in the face of even the most overwhelming odds.
The Barricade 2016 Alexander is the weapon of choice for players who want to intimidate their opponents with superior maneuverability and fearsome looks. From across the court, its bright orange color way breathes pure fire. Up close, the Barricade 2016 Alexander is decked out with details inspired by the Macedonian born Alexander and his countless conquests. The left and right shoe are color blocked differently for instance, based on the fact that Alexander's eyes weren't the same color. Its striking appearance aside, a lightweight TPU mesh upper and an exceptionally durable sole make the Barricade 2016 Alexander the perfect choice for hours of relentless training and grueling five-set victories.
Find your strategy with the Barricade 2016 Alexander, available fromMarch 1st 2016 globally / March 18th in the U.S. Next release in the SS16 Energy Pack is the Barricade 2016 Hannibal for the men, while the women can look forward to the adizero Ubersonic Artemis to supplement the collection.
