The Adidas Harden Volume 7 was released on March 2 in multiple vibrant colorways. This shoe is the latest basketball signature model for the Philadelphia 76ers’ star guard and is once again loaded with tech similar to prior Harden models.
The Volume 7’s upper is inspired by puffer winter jackets, with the first colorway donning a silver color scheme contrasted by a black neoprene sock liner, tongue, and shoelaces. The most notable design element for the shoe is the midsole, which is equipped with a combination of Boost and Lightstrike foam providing lightweight support. Completing the look is a semi-translucent outsole.
“From his lethal stepback to his love of luxury fashion, there’s no doubt that James Harden has style. With his signature shoes from Adidas Basketball, it all comes into play. The upper borrows its bold look from puffer jackets, and the details support explosive on-court moves,” Adidas wrote in the products description. The sneakers retail for $160.
