James Harden is loving life as the new face of Adidas Basketball, and now he sort of has his first official shoe with the company.
Adidas today unveiled the Harden Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE, the fourth hoops installment of the Aurora Borealis footwear collection. The special edition will be worn on-court by the Rockets superstar during the NBA All Star game in Toronto.
The Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE combines design cues from its predecessor with a Primeknit upper and Boost cushioning to deliver added comfort and performance on the hardwood. Harden’s PE features a two-tone upper comprised of teal mesh and reflective Xeno scales that deliver a Northern Lights tribute when hit with flash. Paired with green and deep purple accents the shoe features glow-in-the-dark tooling along the outsole, forefoot mesh and toe box. Pink hits on the silhouette’s torsion plate, three stripe detailing and a custom “13” wordmark rounds out the design.
The Aurora Borealis Collection launches at adidas.com January 28 with Harden’s PE dropping February 12. Look for additional Crazylight Boost 2.5 Harden PEs this spring.
