James Harden’s fourth Adidas signature will make it’s retail debut in a “Barber Shop” colorway, featuring a black knit upper highlighted by hits of red, blue, white and metallic silver.

Unlike Harden’s previous Adidas signatures, the Adidas Vol. 4 ditches the beloved Boost cushioning in favor of the brand’s Lightstrike tooling which was first introduced on the laceless Adidas N3XT L3V3L sneaker.

“The process to create the Vol. 4 was a true collaboration with the Adidas design team that allowed me to voice my creativity and to blend different ideas into one shoe that would showcase both my style of play on the court and my sense of style walking out of the tunnel,” says Harden.

“Daniel Patrick has been setting trends with his use of bold looks and bright colors, so partnering with Daniel was the perfect way to highlight the design of the Vol. 4 and bring sport, fashion and culture together.”

The highly anticipated Air Jordan 12 “Reverse Taxi,” originally rumored to release on November 9, is now slated to release on Halloween, October 31 for the retail price of $190. What’s more, the kicks will be available in sizes for the whole family, with big kid’s sizes retailing for $140, little kid’s for $80 and toddler’s for $60.

Given the “Reverse Taxi” moniker, one would assume that the 12s will flip the colors used on the beloved “Taxi” Air Jordan 12, making for a sneaker that looks very similar to the “Playoffs” colorway. However, that buttery soft suede construction strays from the tumbled leather build of both the “Taxi” and “Playoff” 12s. Additionally the leather overlays match the black upper, offering no form of contrast. 

Similar to the original Taxi colorway, the “Reverse Taxi” will feature metallic gold detailing on the eyelets, accented by red and gold detailing on the tongue and heel.
