Adidas' latest sneaker for NBA superstar James Harden is designed by Oregon's footwear design school Pensole Academy.

The new design features a tweaked upper with an extended leather overlay and built-up collar. Like previous overseas releases, the 'Pensole' Harden utilizes more affordable Bounce cushioning instead of the brand's popular Boost technology. 

The sneaker is the result of a Pensole design contest, the winner of which will receive a new job with adidas.

The Adidas Harden by Pensole Academy releases Dec. 13 for $115 on adidas.com.
