James Harden is on a mission to prove to his doubters why he is still the NBA’s reigning MVP with the hopes of capturing the elusive reward once again with his recent 61-point performance at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. (At that historic game, he tied for the most points scored by an opposing player.)
On Thursday, Adidas NYC celebrated the historic moment by giving away 61 pairs of his latest Harden Vol. 3 signature shoe, which was announced on Twitter. According to the tweet, fans were told to stop by the Adidas 5th Avenue location from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. to pick up the shoes, and as you can imagine, they were all distributed within an hour.
For Harden’s performance, “The Beard” wore a black-based colorway featuring coral accents seen on the JH13 logo on the tongue, the mid-foot stabilizers and the outsole.
A fan replied to the tweet thanking the sportswear giant as he walked away with a never before seen colorway of Harden’s performance model expected to be released soon. If you weren’t able to pick up your pair, a bevy of colorways are available for purchase on Adidas.com for $140.
Tonight, the Houston Rockets will face off against the second-seed Toronto Raptors at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN as Harden attempts to lead his injury-plagued Houston Rockets to yet another victory.
