A year and two months after adidas signed James Harden to the much-talked-about and massive 13-year, $200 million dollar contract, the partnership becomes 100% official today, as “The Bearded One’s” first signature shoe, the Harden Vol. 1, is officially unveiled. The latest in the Three Stripes’ ongoing run of impressive high performance meets high style sneaker silhouettes, the Harden Vol. 1 seamlessly melds a functional on-court shoe built with a Primeknit upper, leather toe wrap, and full-length Boost foam with a distinct off-court, casual-ready aesthetic that only James Harden could envision.
The Harden Vol. 1 will debut in the “Pioneer” colorway, featuring an unmistakable high contrast colorway in black Primeknit with the toe in bright white leather, which is inspired by a young (and beardless) James Harden’s championship game performance (22 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals) that brought home the second-straight California state title to his high school, the Artesia Pioneers. The “Pioneer” colorway will launch December 3rd for $140.
In addition to the full look a the “Pioneer” colorway, today adidas also previews three more Harden Vol. 1 colorways, in “Home” (white/red), “Cargo” (olive green), and “Gila Monster” (grey/coral).
