Before the bushy beard, signature step back and the three scoring titles, James Harden was dropping buckets in an oversized Arizona State jersey. Routinely dressing his signature line-up each year in a colorful connection to his days as a Sun Devil, the adidas Harden Vol. 7 recently became the latest silhouette to dawn the murky burgundy and golden yellow palette.
Reserved as a player exclusive for Harden and the Arizona State basketball programs, the puffer jacket-inspired silhouette dawns a distinct jet-black upper filling everything from the suede toe cap to the sock-like inner bootie. Faint yellow hues are reserved for the heel’s vertical 3-Stripes and the presiding branded tongue tab while the BOOST cushioned midsole cleans up in a crisp white contrast. Bringing further illuminated elements into the fold via the icy blue semi-translucent tread underfoot, the school’s staple dark red shade accompanies the lateral side of the midsole finished with black hardwood-style streaks.
While the aforementioned offering won’t see an official release, in the meantime check out the upcoming adidas Harden Vol. 7 dressed in a vibrant 76ers-inspired colorway.
