adidas Harden Vol. 5 Futurenatural Debuts January 5th
Considering the fact that adidas Hoops’ athletes Damian Lillard and Donovan Mitchell have already rolled out their next signature installments, you’d be right in thinking that their marquee athlete in James Harden wouldn’t be far behind them. And now after months of teasers, official imagery for the first handful of adidas Harden Vol. 5 Futurenatural releases have appeared. Not only will we be treated to several initial colorways, but we’ll also be getting variations of the design, too. Chapter 1’s “Creator” and the floral-popped aqua arrangement dubbed Chapter 2: Support each show some unique overlaying features, thus leaving the door open to many more Chapters in the future. But before we even begin to envisage what the future holds, let’s look at what we already know is ahead — the debut colorway which arrives on January 4th.
Created by Jalal Enayah, former designer of past Jordan Westbrook products, the forthcoming silhouette keeps similar elements from the Harden Vol. 4 such as the textured midsoles, 3/4 height, and overall shape, but features several changes within its composition. Side profiles ditch the mesh base layers and opt to go with synthetic fabrications, while the mid-foot overlays in which the laces loop through have been altered in shape to look more so like an upside-down “M”. Furthermore, the tongue logos has been modified from Three Stripe branding to Harden’s signature “H” logo that veers to the right and printed on the medial walls lands a text hit that spells out the design ‘name — Chapter 1/Creator
The inaugural colorway seen here comes engineered with clean white uppers, paired up with multi-colored accents presented through paint-like blobs throughout its upper half.
