#kixspotted adidas Harden B/E 3
James Harden's summer shoe, the adidas Harden B/E 3 is back on its third year with another change in silhouette. This has a somewhat midtop build with its obvious feature having a large strap in the ankle area. It is made up of textile material which we can break into 3 parts. The forefoot part has that soft textile material and you can clearly see the 3 stripes branding placed on that area. The top-most stripe is made up of an elastic band material to give the wearer a snug fit.
The medial part has the same material as the strap which gives shoe a more sturdy framework. On the lateral side, the ankle area is made up of a velcro pad so you can easily stick the strap in there giving you a somewhat custom fit in the ankle area. The tongue has a burrito wrap-like construction which takes away some dead space even more. The ankle/heel area is padded well which adds comfort reducing any instability in that area.
Just like the past Harden B/E models, Bounce foam is back once again to give you a perfect balance of responsiveness and impact protection. If you love court feel with some impact protection, you will surely love Bounce. Just a side note, I am almost done with the performance review on the adidas Pro Bounce Madness 2019 so I will be giving you my experience with Bounce cushioning (video review coming soon). The outsole is aggressive with multi-directional herringbone pattern. It is made from solid rubber which is ideal in both indoor and outdoor courts.
You can grab a pair now at adidas Trinom for Php 5,500 and comes in 3 color options. Also, if you are here in the Philippines, James Harden will be visiting Manila and according to the sales agent at adidas Trinoma, they will be pushing this model during his tour here so I won't be surprised if he would be wearing this model. They have a promo going on where you can get a ticket to that event if you make a single purchase worth Php 5,000 (regular items). Copping a pair of this will surely qualify you for that promo so if you want to attend the event, just ask them about the full mechanics. In the meantime, you can check the video footage that I made or just browse through the images below.
