Followings its official unveiling in October, James Harden’s first signature sneaker with Adidas finally arrives tomorrow.

The debut colorway of the Adidas Harden Vol. 1 is the “Imma Be a Star,” which takes its theme from a prediction that a young Harden wrote to his mother.

According to Adidas, when Harden was a high school freshman, he scribbled a note to his mom reading, “Imma be a star.” Some 13 years later, the Houston Rockets standout is a four-time NBA All-Star with an $200 million Adidas endorsement deal, effectively realizing the promise he made to his mother over a decade ago.

Built with a black-based Primeknit upper, the Harden Vol. 1 Imma Be a Star features gold threading throughout the knit and a black suede toe shroud. Gold accents appear at the heel, tongue and lace tips, while a translucent black sole reveals the full-length Boost cushioning hiding within.
