adidas Harden Volume 2 signature shoe, designed for the NBA's super star and all-star player, James Harden, is an evolution of his first shoe which focuses on his amazing speed and foot work on the court.
Gas, brake, cook. James Harden freezes defenders with his signature mix of Euro steps, hesitations and lightning-quick crossovers. These basketball shoes are built to create separation from opponents and get buckets with Harden's go-to style. The fractal traction pattern outsole uses pressure maps of his feet which allows for quick start and stop movements, while the stitched fiber upper provides lightweight support as you change direction on a dime. The sock-like construction and custom lacing offer a personalized fit for a game as unique as the Houston Rockets guard.
This colorways brings the story to life that James wanted to tell in Vol 2. Fun, creative, carefree, an inspiration to the kids.
This project was born out of collaboration between multiple creatives. Jesse Rademacher, Carl Arnese, Hussain Almossawi, Jason Mcginnity, Samm McAlear, Brian Foresta, Spencer Wyatt, and Stuart Maingot
