Harden Vol. 4 Celebrates James Harden's Individuality
adidas Basketball is finally introducing the Harden Vol. 4, a shoe inspired by the aesthetic and creativity of James Harden, emphasizing freedom and individuality. This is the lightest Harden shoe to date and features a Lightstrike cushioning for the midsole, together with a unique colourway made possible by Daniel Patrick, famous designer of popular streetwear.
Harden Vol . 4 is apparently the first in Harden's line that features Lighstrike, an all-new midsole that provides the perfect blend of balance and responsiveness. This lightweight feature gives full support and flexibility as well and thereby utmost comfort for the wearer. This design takes into account the various needs of a player in a basketball game.
The shoe comes with a distinctive band along the midfoot that gives added stability and traction for that much-needed grip, flawlessly allowing for various movements in the game and thus earning Harden his esteemed status in footwear design. To highlight his knack for style, this latest drop also features a vibrant colourway that incorporates high quality materials along the upper.
“The process to create the Vol. 4 was a true collaboration with the adidas design team that allowed me to voice my creativity and to blend different ideas into one shoe that would showcase both my style of play on the court and my sense of style walking out of the tunnel,” says Harden. “Daniel Patrick has been setting trends with his use of bold looks and bright colors, so partnering with Daniel was the perfect way to highlight the design of the Vol. 4 and bring sport, fashion and culture together. While my friends and family get the honor of enjoying this limited first drop, everyone can look forward to the next chapter of building my signature collection.”
Beginning November 1st, Harden will be launching the Harden Vol. 4 in this new colourway in collaboration with Daniel Patrick, and it will only be available among his friends and family members. For the spring/summer 2020 line, adidas and Patrick will be releasing a bigger collection that includes shoes and coordinating apparel soon to be accessible to the public.
Patrick further says, “This partnership with adidas and James Harden is the perfect way to expand and challenge my creativity in the two areas I’m most passionate about, fashion and sport. The look of a basketball shoe is just as important as the performance in today’s game, so we made sure to push the boundaries in both. We all worked closely together to make sure the swagger and style that James carries was brought to life with this Harden Vol . 4 colorway and through the larger adidas Basketball collection to come.”
The new Harden Vol . 4 will soon be available on October 12th together with “Barbershop" and then later followed by “Pink Lemonade” on October 26th. On October 31st, “Candy Paint” will drop, after which “Cookies & Cream” will be released on November 15th. The shoes will be priced at 130 USD on adidas.com and at selected retailers. It is also said that new colourways will also be available throughout the rest of the season. Catch the latest updates on this awesome line!
