By Staff  |  10/05/2015

Adidas officially welcomed Houston Rockets star James Harden to the family earlier this month with a truckload of kicks... but what was it about the brand that appealed to him?

In an interview with Nice Kicks, from his Houston home with his new shipment of Adidas on display, Harden discussed the 13-year deal with the brand.

"I just liked the vibe, the direction they're going in and headed towards," James says. "Obviously, they have a couple good basketball players and athletes over there, but I feel like myself and the brand can merge together and really make something special.

"Everything, from Superstars to Kobe who had the Crazy 8's and T-Mac, just all those great players," Harden adds, in respect to the Originals line. "Then you got the jumpsuits and the Run-DMC swag. They got a lot of retros and a lot of cool stuff that needs to brought back to life... its one of the reasons I'm here."
