Freshly-crowned NBA MVP James Harden has had an interesting last few weeks when it comes to his footwear. First, adidas unveiled a three-pack of MVP-styled shoes for the Beard before he’d even won the award. Then, Trolli—another one of Harden’s sponsors—created a life-size gummy candy take on his Harden Vol. 2 sneakers. Now, his Harden LS2, an off-court variant of his signature shoes, has arrived in a new summertime colorway that gives off heavy desert vibes-fitting, as Harden played college basketball at Arizona State.
The shoe’s sandy yellow upper is constructed of a suede/leather mix, and a premium raw leather patch with a debossed Harden logo adorns the tongue. Bold coral-colored straps replace a standard lacing system and provide a Southwestern-style contrast, as does the coral heel tab. The shoe is completed with a full-length white Boost midsole and low-profile outsole. These casual Harden kicks are available from adidas.com now for $160.
