Harden’s first signature shoe with adidas, the Harden Vol. 1 was released on Dec 3, 2016. While its looks were generally panned across the board, a large collection of NBAers used it regularly on court. The Harden Vol. 2 was released in February 2018, with a refined new look and a heavy dose of adidas’ newest performance features. The Harden Vol. 3 was released in September 2018, though use among fellow NBA players has been light.
Prior to his partnership with adidas, Harden was a long-time Nike athlete, starting with his days in Arizona State donning the Swoosh, through his first six seasons in the NBA. During that time, he wore a huge variety of shoes, from the Hyperfuse and Hyperdunk, to the Lunar Hypergamer and Run the One.
