Adidas brand endorser and current #10 ranked WTA player Caroline Wozniacki will be unveiling a new Adidas shoe for next week's French Open. The Adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade Shoe follows the identically named apparel that was launched by Adidas earlier this spring.

The shoes will be available for $125 on the Adidas website and at specialty retailers beginning June 1st.
Wozniacki, a long time Adidas ambassador, has been linked to the Adidas by Stella McCartney label since 2009.
