James Harden has been spotted wearing what is reportedly the Harden Vol.7 during the Darico Hines’ open run. Detailed images from the run has allowed us to break down what the upcoming signature shoe could offer.
The Harden Vol.7 will be the first Harden signature shoe to feature a mid-top silhouette for increased ankle support. The upper is built upon a single knit upper which is wrapped around thick leather and suede panels similar to the Jordan 13. An additional heel collar, typically found on the Why Not series, allows for additional heel lockdown and comfort.
The midsole cushion isn’t as obvious as the previous Harden Volume models. Boost foam seems to be featured in the heel, caged by TPU around the lateral side. It is unclear whether the forefoot also uses Boost foam or a different foam technology is implemented.
The outsole is a typical herringbone pattern with pivot patterns focused around the heel and the ball of the foot.
