Performance of the Adidas Harden Volume 1:
The Adidas Harden Volume 1 performs well in all categories except fit. Traction was almost uniformly praised by reviewers. Materials vary among different colorways but are of high quality in each one. The only weakness of the shoe is the painful break-in period. Especially the leather toe cap was causing a lot of reviewers trouble.
The adidas Harden Vol. 1 is a very well balanced shoe for guards. Traction, cushion, materials, fit, support…the best of what adidas has to offer all on one sneaker? Reasonably priced? And they’ve been doing this all year long? You best believe it.
If you are a guard, or forward, or big man who doesn’t mind lows, you will enjoy this shoe. Fit, cushion, traction, and support are all nice for anyone unless you just feel like you need a super-light shoe (you don’t).
The fit is good, the traction is amazing. The shoe feels light, and the cushion is very responsive. The Harden Vol. 1 is a very good shoe and does live up to the reputation James Harden has as a talented and explosive player.
The Harden Vol 1 is one of those shoes I like a lot. Its tech is great, it looks good, it’s made well and it isn’t too expensive. However, Adidas ruined an excellent traction set up with the Fibonacci design and as a traction lover, this did the shoe in for me. Well that and my arch pain.
