There's no question that Houston Rockets' very own James Harden is one of the nastiest 1-on-1 players the league has ever witnessed, and this is reflected just by the simple fact that he earned himself an MVP honor back in 2018. However, NBA fans will be first to tell you that at times, his game can be somewhat controversial as he heavily relies on drawing fouls in the paint, in addition to forming a signature step-back that many would argue involves far too many gather steps. In relation to the latter, adidas Hoops has decided to create a whole new sibling silhouette named after the shifty offensive move entitled the Harden Stepback. The budget-friendly model possesses a similar shape to his signature Harden Vol. 4, only the upper constructions ditch the lace overlays and come altered with stripe branding on the side panels as well horizontal design lines added to the rear. Furthermore, the midsole sections arrive less pronounced, and are presented with tonal embellishments to echo its motif.
