Here’s a breakdown showing just a few ways that Harden tricks his defenders to draw fouls. In the first example, defender should not have his arms out trying to impede the progress of the offensive player. In the second example, defenders are just reaching in like idiots, and in the last example I’m not sure if there’s a proper way to close out on a step back or side step jump shot but that ain’t it. Again, I’m not saying that this part of his game is fun to watch but imo he’s just taking advantage of bad defense. Try your best to stay in front of him, DON’T REACH and if he goes for the step back play the percentages and live with the results.

Did it work at ****’s?
One person a page back said he was able to. I didn't try (I have done it before and they did it) because in case the lace loop breaks I can return to Nike. I got $20 off and have $15 cash back on the order so it not a big price difference. Promotion ends today so give it a shot.

Last episode of Complex's show Full Size Run they all called it ugly
All 3 of those guys are straight up Hypebeast. For them anything that is a collab is a “drip”
Stop watching them after they kept being redundant. Also they shouldn’t be a benchmark for opinions on performance basketball sneakers.

I only watch for the guest. If they suck I'm out.

I personally think this (in the right colorway) is one of the best-looking basketball sneakers in recent years

2 of the 3 are the antithesis of hypebeasts. And to your second point, sure I agree.

These are real nice. The midfoot strap is not too bad as I was worried from early reviews. The midfoot kinda snug still but should feel great after break-in. The materials on Barbershop is super nice but no ventilation. Lightstrike seems okay right now but they should feel great after a few more wear. Better than the Bounce in the Don 1. The outsole is super wide and stable. Nice solid performer for $130.

Thanks for the breakdown.

Just received these. Love how wide they are and the FYW-inspired midsole structure, great materials too.

Wish Adidas stopped fitting their shoes so long though, these seem about half an inch longer than the Vol 3s. Shouldn't be a problem with this lacing system anyway

You got this colorway or the Harden volume 4 itself? I just copped the 4s yesterday. Feels great

Yeah sorry I meant the vol 4. I got the "barbershop". Gonna get the pink ones too for sure.

So annoying to get injured (possibly plantar fasciitis) right when new shoes get delivered :frown:

Anyone wants a size 9 barbershop for $110 shipped hit me up. Love the shoes but don’t like having a midsole with 3 different colors
