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.
