What’s going One on One Nation? Leaks after leaks, the adidas Harden Vol. 3 is right around the corner. One on One Testers is back at it again, giving y’all a FIRST Look. Official images of the Harden 3s have finally surfaced after a long wait. What many speculated to be a very early leak of the Harden Vol. 3 wasn’t as they are releasing this September in 2018, unlike the Harden Vol. 2, which released in February this year. Therefore, it looks like adidas is early on schedule with the Harden Vol. 3.
The adidas Harden Vol. 3 looks to feature a straight up herringbone outsole, unlike the past two models. Additionally, the usual BOOST midsole is evident, this time being even thinner, and slightly less caging. The only form of caging for the 3s looks to be on the lateral side with a thin TPU clip, covering just the forefoot of the BOOST, since it is so thin. The upper looks like a thin, open-air mesh, or a woven, potentially varying with each colorway. The heel of the shoes comes up a lot, which is a bit unusual for something in the Harden line. Finally, there seems to be a bungee cord lockdown piece at the mid-foot for some added lockdown, with looks very similar to the Nike Kyrie Flytrap.
You can expect the adidas Harden Vol. 3 to debut at select retailers starting September 27th in two renditions of an ‘Oreo’ colorway. On November 1st, the ‘Breds’ will release. How many of you are feeling the adidas Harden Vol. 3? We don’t mind ’em. Just hoping adidas can offer a branch of different cushioning than BOOST every year. That just about wraps it up. Stay tuned to One on One Testers for all that good sneaker news, early looks, and performance reviews.
