GAS. BRAKE. COOK.

James Harden knows within seconds that his defender can’t guard him. Jab, dribble, hesi, cross, step-back, drill the three. Harden’s got his defender on skates before they can even react to his first move. A recipe few can master but for Harden it’s what makes him basketball’s most lethal creator.  

Designed to enhance No. 13’s skill for changing direction, adidas introduces Harden Vol. 2 with FORGEFIBER and full-length BOOST. The second volume in Harden’s signature line is uniquely constructed to elevate his deceptive footwork and amplify his ability to create space on-court.

“It’s tailored to my game and quick change of direction,” Harden explained. “Being different in the sense of my movements – the step-backs and Eurosteps and quick crossovers – you got to have a shoe that’s designed to move whenever you move…and not a second later.”






FORGE YOUR PATH

Engineered for the movements that separate Harden from the rest, FORGEFIBER hits the court for the first time and provides all the comfort a foot in motion needs without the traditional stiffness. An application process utilizing TPU-coated yarn, FORGEFIBER is compressed across stretch-based mesh for strengthened support and stitched with three unique layers to reinforce Harden’s signature jab step, step-back and Eurostep.

Harden Vol. 2 features a customizable lacing system, equipped for personalized lockdown. Large scale mesh is utilized on the tongue for added breathability while a lace band stretches across the foot, bridging the upper for added containment.

COMFORT ON 100

Loaded with full-length BOOST cushioning, Harden Vol. 2 is designed with a wide base at the back of the foot to create stance and provide a balanced platform for Harden’s footwork in isolation. Midfoot grooves house a stability plate to reinforce torsion control, while the silhouette’s heel counter ensures durability and balance.

CUT IT UP

Embracing one of James’ favorite features of the Harden Vol. 1, the design team went back to the lab with advanced generative software to evolve the Harden Vol. 2 traction pattern. Derived from testing and data mapping of James’ on-court movements, a traction pattern was created to vary densities across the outsole and focus on Harden’s key zones for changing direction.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’

Inspired by Harden’s love for Los Angeles. Created for the City of Angels. This is where Harden shaped his game and learned to dream. Harden Vol. 2 California Dreamin’ takes on the hues of a LA sunrise, featuring palm tree camo on the lace system, pastel green and purple accents, a chalk coral upper with orange FORGEFIBER threads and dark gray BOOST.

IGNITE

Creating more points – scored or assisted on – than any player in the league, James is the key to igniting the Rockets’ high-powered offense. Harden Vol. 2 Ignite represents James’ fire to bring a title back to Houston. Harden Vol. 2 Ignite releases globally is out now at shop.adidas.com.ph and selected retail stores for P7,500.
