UPDATE (09/03/2019): Reports have surfaced, per US11 that these new shoes are in fact called the adidas Harden Stepback, introducing a completely new line to James Harden’s current signature and B/E line-ups. Stay tuned for official release details.
The Beard and the Three Stripes have worked together the past three years bringing us some absolute fire kicks. We were originally the first to report this brand-new James Harden budget model back in May. Now, we have a first official look at the shoes.
A simple herringbone makes up the forefoot, while what appears to be an odd storytelling makes up the heel tread. Full-length Bounce foam seems to be intact, while the rubber outsole comes up along the heel to cage the foam. A primary build of of mesh, and synthetic paneling at the mudguard and eyestay area can be seen, which makes up the upper. Finishing off the shoes is a large stamped three stripes logo laterally.
There is still no official release date for these, and a name has yet to surface for these shoes. While we await official release information for the next James Harden budget shoe, be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below. Keep it locked here for updates on these.
