James Harden is in it to win it, taking a relatively steep pay-cut to remain with the Philadelphia Sixers and providing salary cap flexibility to sign key players for a championship run. All eyes will indeed be on Philly during the 2022-2023 season as Harden and MVP runner-up Joel Embiid get to play a full season together, and needless to say, anything short of the Finals could be considered a disappointment.
Joining James in his fourteenth NBA season will be his next signature shoe — the adidas Harden Vol. 7. Seen here during one of Darico Hines’ open runs, the seventh signature model is revealed in a purple and black colorway and sporting an all-new redesign. Sticking to a low-cut model, the Harden 7 features a distinct quilt stitching on the upper and three stripes logo hits on the heel, scooping up from the heel towards the achilles. The Harden Vol. 7 is definitely a throwback for the adidas Basketball brand, skewing away from the chiseled midsole construction and opting for a more streamlined, aerodynamic look. In regards to the tech specs, it is likely that the Harden Vol 7 will utilizes BOOST cushioning, a staple of the Harden line.
