Noor here, super hyped to bring y’all this, doing a first impressions on two shoes in the same article. I recently copped the adidas Harden Vol. 2 and Nike Kobe A.D. Mid, both on sale for less than $80 each, which I would consider a steal. Let’s take a look at these dope sneakers.
Nike Kobe A.D. Mid
Going to start this article off with the Kobe A.D. Mid, I was super hyped to get these for the price I did. This particular colorway is my personal favorite, that black and gum combo with the pink swoosh and white mid sole really intrigued me and honestly look better in person than they did online (which still looked good). Aside from the aesthetics of the shoe, the upper is a felt material with visible flywire cables running throughout, this material is really stiff initially and will require break in time. The cushion is Lunarlon and upon trying it out it feels pretty bouncy, I just hope it won’t bottom out quick. Finally, the traction is a multi directional blade pattern that I’ve heard gets dust stuck in it quite easily. Still excited to try out traction, I’m down to wipe a lot but he traction better be good to go after, one thing I hate is lackluster traction.
adidas Harden Vol. 2
I’ve already done a review and first impressions on the adidas Harden Vol. 2, but I had to cop this clean colorway for $60, that’s right adidas has many colorways of this shoe on sale! The cargo colorway has always been a favorite of mine, the cream colored outsole really blends well with the cargo upper and the white Boost. Can’t wait to start rocking these on and off court (these look dope with khaki pants).
Wrapping Things Up!
That’s it for my new pickups, not any new hyped models, but both of these were on sale for less than $80 each and both of these colorways are straight fire on my feet!
