Adidas Unveiled The ‘Yacht Club’ Edition Of James Harden’s Signature Shoe

While much of the basketball world is quiet in August, Houston Rockets star James Harden is seemingly ever-present in the NBA landscape. He has been credited by Rockets GM Daryl Morey as the lead recruiter in landing Chris Paul, and Harden was even portrayed in the #DriveByDunkChallenge in a speedboat.

With Harden’s 28th birthday coming on Aug. 26, the All-NBA guard is also gearing up for a new shoe release, as Adidas is set to introduce the Harden Vol. 1 Yacht Club on Saturday, Aug. 19.

The new shoe is described by the company as a nautical-themed triple-white version of Harden’s first signature shoe, and that would fit in with Harden’s off-court persona that often includes quite a bit of all-white clothing. This particular edition also includes a leather toe shroud with a mesh upper, and of course, Harden’s signature logo is incorporated on both the sock-liner and the out-sole.

The shoe will be available for $140 on the release date, and given the current sneaker landscape and Harden’s soaring popularity, that certainly does not seem like a significant stretch. The Houston Rockets will almost certainly be in the throws of the NBA conversation throughout the season after the addition of Paul to an already stacked roster, and from Harden’s perspective, being a deserving MVP candidate has its privileges.
