Reigning NBA MVP James Harden and adidas are set to unleash the Harden Vol. 3 just in time for the start of the 2018-19 NBA season.
He’s arguably the league’s most efficient scorer, known for using his agility to carve out looks at the basket. With this in mind, Harden says stability became main focus for the Vol. 3.
‘When I’m out on the court making moves, making guys fall or I’m changing direction… that’s all in the shoe,’ says Harden. ‘If we weren’t thinking about that stop-and-go mindset when we we’re creating these shoes, those moves just wouldn’t work. Slow down fast doesn’t make sense, but my game doesn’t make sense. I don’t think you’ve ever seen anyone play this way.’
The Harden Vol. 3 is supported with a huge BOOST sole unit, while herringbone is added to high-traffic areas for extra stability and stop-and-go response.
Dropping in grey ‘Voyager’ and black ‘Cosmos’ colourways, the Harden Vol. 3 hits adidas.com on October 12 (grey) and October 15 (black) for $140 and $160 USD.
