Each Harden Vol. 1 tells a different story. With that in mind, adidas will be using different materials on different colorways. The Vol. 1’s most prominent feature, the toe shroud, is done up in black suede on these new joints. And the Three Stripes’ BOOST cushioning returns, along with a mix of mesh and knit materials.

These are based on a note Harden wrote to his mother.

“PS: Keep this paper. Imma be a star.”

That was 13 years ago. Along with being one of the League’s most devasting forces and the current assists leader, the Beard can add clairvoyant to his resume.

These drop on November 23, for $160 at adidas.com.
