Adidas Harden Vol. 1 'Pioneer' - The Drop Date

Adidas Harden Vol. 1 ‘Pioneer’ – A First Look

The ADIDAS HARDEN VOL. 1 ‘PIONEER’ is the first signature shoe released since NBA star James ‘The Beard’ Harden signed a whopping $200 million 13-year contract with the German brand, last year.

The shoe combines styles that are suited for both on and off the court. A black Primeknit upper contrasts with the white leather toe wrap and full length Boost cushioning – the Boost sole being a very common sight on NBA courts these days. The lacing system is placed over the lateral side of the shoe to reduce the tension on the top of the foot, something that suits Harden’s energetic style of play. Red accents finish the look and the black/white/red combination and ‘Pioneer’ moniker pay homage to Harden’s high school team in California, the Artesian Pioneers, which won the state title after a match-winning performance from the then-beardless Harden. The championship date, ‘March 24, 2007’, is written on the left sockliner with Harden’s game stats on the right.

Fans have patiently waited since last summer when Harden inked his deal with the brand for a drop like this. They’ll be pleased that the ‘Pioneer’ isn’t alone, as adidas has previewed three additional Harden Vol. 1 styles: ‘Home’ (white/red), ‘Cargo’ (olive green), and ‘Gila Monster’ (grey/coral).

The ADIDAS HARDEN VOL. 1 ‘PIONEER’ colourway will drop SATURDAY 3 DECEMBER. In the meantime, you can check the current basketball footwear range at adidas via the banner below.
