One of the sneakers Trae Young laced up during his rookie season is the adidas Harden Vol. 3.
This James Harden signature features the popular Boost cushioning, providing a plush and bouncy feel to Trae. An elastic band is added above the forefoot for extra containment in the show, while the tried-and-true herringbone pattern is used on the traction. This happens to ride up the sides of the midsole, providing the balance needed for Harden and Trae to perform crossovers.
