Editor’s Notes: Following its official introduction earlier this month in three colorways, James Harden’s second signature is now releasing in four more variations in preparation for spring.
Each style is essentially a testament to James’ journey from a young middle school basketball player to the star he is now. The “Imma Be a Star” pair in black/gold refers to when James Harden wrote his dreams onto paper with a simple note promising his mom that he would become a star, “Traffic Jam” in black/white relates to Harden’s unstoppable ability for getting to the basket, while the red/grey “Pioneer” edition remixes the team colors worn by Harden in high school. Finally, the grey/black “Concrete” pair is inspired by James’ early basketball days outside his childhood home.
Find the black/gold “Imma Be a Star” variation at adidas retailers now, while the remaining three pairs will debut later this week and next weekend.
