James Harden

The Beard, as he's popularly known, James Harden's shoes are a reflection of his dynamic playstyle. His signature line with adidas is a testament to his versatility on the court, featuring both style and substance, much like the player himself. The adidas Harden Vol. 7 is the pinnacle of the series with its advanced construction including Lightstrike and Jet Boost cushioning. This not only makes the sneaker ultra-lightweight but provides optimal comfort for on-the-court play.

Issue series is almost set to unveil its fifth iteration with the D.O.N. Issue #5. Though this version of Donovan’s line has yet to be released, and its tech specs remain under wraps, the D.O.N. Issue #4 is still one of the best sneakers from adidas’ lineup. Internally, the sole unit features Lightstrike Strobel cushioning for a super-light, yet, energy-returning feel while the Lightlock upper provides the ultimate lockdown with its snug fit.
