The adidas Harden Vol. 3 “Core Black/Active Blue” is inspired by the NBA superstar’s on-court flair. The sleek low-top sports a black based mesh upper with a grey pattern woven into the lightweight, breathable material. Adidas places a black synthetic midfoot band across the upper for improved lockdown support while remaining flexible. Embroidered purple Three Stripes branding on the heel contrasts the look, as does the black leather spine that dons Harden’s “13” jersey number. A Boost midsole provides a springy, responsive feel for quick movements and cuts akin to the playing style of its namesake.
