James Harden has been one of the NBA’s most polarizing players this season, and his shoes are the perfect complement to his persona. With an angular shape and bold colorways, the adidas Harden Vol. 2 is as eye-catching as the Beard’s game.
Today, adidas unveils two new colorways of the Harden Vol 2, dubbed ‘Step Back’ and ‘Lift Off’.
The Harden Vol 2 ‘Step Back’, which releases on April 1, is inspired by the Houston Rockets jerseys of the late ’90s, made famous by Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, and Hakeem Olajuwon. A navy blue upper is intersected by cyan ForgeFiber threads, while red highlights are placed strategically around the shoe.
The ‘Lift Off’, which drops on April 15, embraces Harden’s goal of winning a title in Houston. The all black upper is accented with gray and silver hits throughout.
Both colorways are priced at $140 each and will be available at Eastbay.com on release day.
