James Harden's New LS 2 Sneaker Gets Our Vote

What better time to reveal James Harden’s new adidas shoe – the Rockets guard just received All-NBA First Team votes on all 100 ballots, putting him in the illustrious company of similarly unanimously selected LeBron James.

The Harden LS 2  – a strong contender for the position of your new summer go-to – is a striking sight. Fat buckles steal attention first before the eye wanders to the panels of olive suede and leather, then the onto the rear, where a bunch of different features come to head (or a heel, in this instance): the outsole’s Prophere-like surface (somewhat less aggressive) climbs high, doubling as a heel cup and caging in an extra-thick slab of BOOST as well as the heel’s smooth leather. It's strange to think of a heel as a sneaker's primary design feature, but in this case, it kind of is.

Harden up your rotation when these drop on May 28.
