At the upcoming Australian Open, it will be a new year and new hue for tennis stars Garbiñe Muguruza and Caroline Wozniacki.
The athletes will debut the new Adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade women’s collection at the Grand Slam tournament beginning on Jan. 16, featuring vibrant colors inspired by the land Down Under.
World-ranked No. 7 player Garbiñe Muguruza unveiled her new look a bit early at the Brisbane International tournament today, wearing the Barricade Boost in white.
The shoes retail for £119.95 (around $147 at the current exchange rate) at specialty retailers, as well as the Adidas by Stella McCartney flagship store in Brompton Cross, London, and online.

The Boost technology provides a significant energy return through the midsole, and the Primeknit method knits the upper in a single piece, providing lightweight comfort.
Wozniacki praised McCartney’s sneakers for enhancing her moves.
“Boost is something you need to feel to believe; my game is more energized, and I’m lighter and faster on my feet,” she said.
Muguruza reflected on 2016 as her “most successful year,” adding that she’s keen on seeing what develops in 2017 with her new Adidas by Stella McCartney sportswear.
“I am looking forward to building on my achievements from last year — starting in Melbourne,” she said. “I am really excited to wear the dress at the Australian Open; I love the design and the fit flattering. Wearing the Adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade line, I can step onto court ready to compete and also look my best in Australia’s summer heat.”
