adidas Unveils James Harden Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE of the Aurora Borealis Basketball Collection

adidas ASW16 Harden PE Pair Glow Horizontal
adidas today unveiled the James Harden Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE, the fourth basketball installment of the Aurora Borealis footwear collection. The special edition will be worn on-court by the Houston Rockets superstar to celebrate his fourth consecutive NBA All-Star appearance after becoming the youngest player in league history to hit 1,000 threes, proving his offensive prowess as the second-leading point scorer and most recently notching two-straight triple-doubles.

The Aurora Borealis collection is inspired by Toronto's vibrant, cosmopolitan culture and the Northern Lights that paint the sky in upper parts of Canada. The collection features an array of adidas basketball and Originals shoes all engineered with glow in the dark styling and multicolor uppers. Each model pairs bright color palettes that blend gradient knit textures and purple accents to reflect the Aurora Borealis.

James Harden Crazylight Boost 2.5 PEThe Crazylight Boost 2.5 combines design cues from its predecessor with a Primeknit upper and Boost cushioning to deliver added comfort and performance on the hardwood. Harden's Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE features a two-tone upper comprised of teal mesh and reflective Xeno scales that deliver a Northern Lights tribute when hit with flash. Paired with green and deep purple accents, the 2.5's latest take is designed with glow-in-the-dark tooling along the outsole, forefoot mesh and toe box. Pink hits on the silhouette's torsion plate, three stripe detailing and a custom "13" wordmark rounds out the latest NBA All-Star edition.

The Aurora Borealis Collection launches at adidas.com January 28 with the Harden PE ($130) dropping February 12. adidas will roll out additional Crazylight 2.5 Harden PEs in the coming months. Keep it locked to @adidashoops on Twitter and Instagram.
