Yohji Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 was on display at the runway show during Paris Fashion Week. One display was some offerings from the brands Fall/Winter 2018 Collection which includes two colorways of the adidas Y3 James Harden JH Boost.
The two color options consists of Black and Black and White. Featuring a premium construction consisting of suede, leather and neoprene. Following we have Yohji Yamamoto’s signature stitched on the toe box. The last detail is the midsole which resembles that of the adidas BYW (Boost You Wear).
James Harden had yet another MVP-caliber season that probably has the man finishing as second in MVP voting to former teammate Russell Westbrook and earned him another All-NBA First Team honor. He led the Houston Rockets to a playoff birth wearing the adidas Harden Vol 1, his first signature model with the three stripes that garnered attention for the Boost cushioning system and split upper that alternated between woven textiles and a premium leather toecap. It looks like adidas Hoops is bringing out a new rendition for summer with this Harden Vol 1 Uncaged. The pair takes after the Ultra Boost counterparts in name as the all woven upper ditches the protective toebox and TPU midsole for a simple Primeknit and Boost combination that’s a bit more lifestyle friendly. Stay tuned for more previews in the near future and expect a release in July.
