Profile of the Adidas Harden B/E

These overseas-exclusive Harden basketball shoes are inspired by James’s “Brothers Through Everything” motto. The Adidas Harden B/E boasts a patterned mesh upper for increased airflow with textured leather overlays for durability. Underfoot, the comfortable Adidas Bounce midsole keeps your feet feeling fresh all day.


Cushion. Unlike the full-length Boost found on the Harden Vol. 1, the Harden B/E is equipped with the next best thing — Adidas Bounce. The Bounce midsole offers increased comfort and flexibility to keep you on your toes throughout 48 mins of action.

Traction. The Adidas Harden B/E boasts the same rubber outsole found on the Harden Vol. 1. The Fibonacci-inspired traction pattern offers exceptional grip on and off the hardwood.


Length and Width. Adidas Harden B/E owners are claiming that these low-tops run smaller than the Harden Vol. 1. Narrow and regular footers can stick with their real size; however, wide-footers may need to go up half a size.

Lockdown. These low-top basketball shoes from Adidas feature an asymmetrical lacing system that offers maximum support and total lockdown.


The Harden B/E’s upper is constructed with a combination mesh and leather. The air mesh upper offers increased breathability while a leather toe and midfoot overlay provide added durability.


These low-tops from Adidas feature the same design cues seen on the Harden Vol. 1. The Harden B/E features the signature asymmetrical construction near the tongue as well as the leather overlay on the midfoot and toe cap.
