James Harden’s First Adidas Signature Sneaker Drops Tomorrow

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.
