adidas appears to be gearing up for the NBA offseason with the latest lifestyle version of the Harden Vol 2 LS.
In the same fashion as the Harden Vol 1 LS, there will be a Harden Vol 2 LS. We now have an in-hand look at Harden’s next lifestyle silhouette thanks to overseas leakers.
Sitting atop the same tooling as its performance counterpart (minus the Boost caging in the forefoot and traction pattern) is a blacked out upper comprised of suede and tumbled leather overlays. The Harden Vol 2 LS features a buckled strap that crosses the midfoot twice over a laceless upper. Speculation points to a Harden Vol 2 LS that does not include this buckle system, but we will have to wait to see if that comes to fruition.
Revisiting the outsole, we’re sure our WearTesters are curious to see if this traction pattern actually outperforms the performance model, as the Harden Vol 2 did not get the best reviews in that department.
This is a leak, so nothing has been confirmed, but stay tuned for updates as we receive more information. Do you feel this sneaker will translate well for summertime casual use? Drop a comment down below with your thoughts.
