You didn’t think Nike would be the only one putting together special edition basketball shoes for this year’s NBA All-Star Game, did you? Kanye’s favorite label adidas has a special player edition for James Harden, their $200 million man.
The collection was inspired by Toronto’s vibrance and each sneaker “pairs bright color palettes that blend gradient knit textures and purple accents to reflect the Aurora Borealis.”
James Harden’s player edition Crazylight Boost 2.5 sneaker takes the same cues, using a prime knit upper and Boost cushioning for comfort and performance. The upper detailing includes a teal mesh and reflective Xeno scales that completely change the look of the shoe when exposed to a camera flash. The outsole is glow-in-the-dark green and sits just below a purple midsole. Lastly, Harden’s number appears in a stylized font on the tongue.
The Houston Rockets shooting guard’s player edition sneaker looks to be releasing in the spring, so keep your eyes peeled for a hard release date.
How do these stack up to Nike’s NBA All-Star Game kicks?
