There was a lot of fanfare around the country on Saturday for the release of James Harden’s Vol. 1 Adidas signature basketball sneaker, but the most noise was made Saturday in L.A. at trendy sneaker boutique Nice Kicks — with Harden, himself, holding court at a block party that wrapped his day of surprise appearances at West Coast retailers for the debut.
“It’s a dream come true — it’s a blessing to have my own signature shoe,” the Houston Rockets athlete told a crowd of fans on stage at a special outdoor interactive zone. “It’s been nothing but a whirlwind, but it’s been fun.”
The event — open to the public — supported Adidas’ launch of the “Pioneer” iteration of Harden Vol. 1, available for $140 on Adidas.com, Nicke Kicks, Foot Locker, Eastbay, and at select retailers. Additional colorways will be dropping throughout the season.
Along with the kicks, Harden’s companion apparel collection debuted, featuring several T-shirt styles emblazoned with the bearded baller’s silhouette and abstract graphics, which were available gratis for fans and included customizable design options.
