We’re getting an official look at the Harden Vol. 5 today, a new silhouette that’s jampacked with the brand’s latest tech. The most noteworthy innovation in the shoe is Futurenatural, which will make its debut on the Harden Vol. 5. According to the Three Stripes, Futurenatural is a seamless one-piece upper that works together with the athlete’s movement while the underfoot is cushioned with Boost and Lightstrike for on-court responsiveness.
“Futurenatural is a new process for the creation of shoes, and is a perfect technology for Harden Vol. 5 with James’ dynamic style of play and moves on the court being unlike any other player,” said Rashad Williams, Senior Director of Footwear at Adidas Basketball. “James offers feedback from a design and feel standpoint, which is extremely important during our creative process and it ultimately led us to develop the Futurenatural technology to match his game.”
As of now, an exact release date for the Adidas Harden Vol. 5 has not been revealed, but the shoe is slated to release in early 2021.
