The Roast Of James Harden’s New Sneakers Is So Vicious
Here are the highlights we know you want
James Harden signed a $200 million endorsement deal with Adidas last summer and given that he’s one of the more colorful personalities in the NBA, one wouldn’t be out of line for expecting his first signature sneaker to be a little zany. But a photo of the shoe apparently leaked to the internet Wednesday afternoon, and the only way this shoe is zany is if you’re a construction worker who thinks it’s bold to wear boots without a steel toe on the work site.

Esquire speculates that the shoe that leaked may be an unfinished version, and for Harden’s sake, we hope that’s true. But in the meantime, Sneaker Twitter isn’t waiting around for a verdict on that, dishing out sicker burns than it had for even the Under Armour Curry 2s, which were famously annihilated after leaking.
