Adidas and basketball star James Harden have teamed up once again to bring basketball enthusiasts the latest addition to the Harden signature line, the Harden Vol. 7. The shoe marks a significant milestone in adidas Basketball design, as it combines innovation with versatility, inspired by Harden’s on-court excellence and distinctive off-court fashion sense.
Harden’s impact on the game of basketball extends beyond the court, as he has become a fashion icon and social influencer. From his unique fashion sense to his presence at renowned fashion events, Harden’s cultural influence is undeniable. The Harden Vol. 7 is designed to cater to athletes who aspire to achieve their goals, challenge cultural paradigms, and deliver stylish and confident performances.
The Harden Vol. 7 is available in vibrant and anticipated colorways, including Red Luxury and Silver Metallic, with more colorways set to debut later this year. The shoe is engineered to provide comfort, energy return, and ultimate response, featuring a mixed material upper designed for lifestyle appeal.
The shoe is equipped with the latest in adidas design technology, including a new and caged Jet Boost midsole for improved stability and energy return, as well as Lightstrike street-luxe materials on the midsole for responsive cushioning and movement. A knit bootie provides dialed-in comfort and protection, while padded textile quarter panels improve durability and protection. A refined textile toe cap increases durability in high-abrasion areas, and a two-layer heel counter provides support and cushioning in the heel and achilles. Full-length propulsion plates offer comfort and protection while supporting acceleration, and a multi-directional herringbone-patterned sole ensures agility and traction through cuts.
The silhouette is an exploration of innovation, while still being rooted firmly in the “Remember The Why” ethos introduced in the adidas Basketball campaign at the start of the basketball season. With the Harden Vol. 7, adidas and James Harden have once again pushed the boundaries of basketball shoe design, delivering a shoe that is both versatile and stylish, reflecting Harden’s unparalleled on-court skills and fashion-forward sensibilities.
