The adidas Harden Vol 3, James Harden’s latest signature shoe, has arrived at retail in a bold new colorway inspired by the Drew League.
If the initial black/white launch colorway of the Harden Vol 3 was a bit too basic for certain tastes the ‘College Purple’ colorway should satisfy fans that want a bold look.
The Harden Vol 3 sports a lace band across the upper that adidas says will deliver customized lockdown. Cushioning is taken care of by a full-length Boost midsole, the very same system used in Harden’s past signature shoes. The usual TPU support plate will also return in the Vol 3, and this colorway shows it off in Aqua.
“Slow down fast doesn’t make sense, but my game doesn’t make sense. I don’t think you’ve ever seen anyone play this way,” said Harden in a statement. “If you combine all my moves, you probably won’t ever see that [style] again but that’s what I bring to the table and that’s where we get that phrase from. Every year I try to figure out a way to create an advantage and creating space is, I think, one of the biggest parts of the game of basketball.”
