James Harden’s Imma Be A Star Is the First Harden 1 Release


Back when James Harden was in high school, he wrote a note to his mother promising her that “Imma Be a Star.”

No, seriously, I can’t make stuff up like this.

Here’s some info straight from adidas:

As a freshman in high school, James Harden wrote his dreams onto paper with a simple note promising his mom, ‘Imma Be A Star.’ The Houston Rockets point guard has reimagined the definition of his position and continues to leave his mark on NBA record books as he lives out the goal he created nearly 13 years ago. The Imma Be A Star edition of Harden Vol. 1 serves to inspire future stars of the game and commemorate the note James’ mom has kept to this day.
“As every young kid, you have dreams…you have aspirations. You ask for things when you’re a kid and one day, I asked my mom for some money and I wrote her a note,” Harden explained. “It said, ‘Could u wake me up at 7:00 and could u leave me a couple of dollars. P.S. Keep this paper. Imma be a star.’

The shoe features black Primeknit, gold speckles and full-length Boost TPU wrap.

Available on November 23 on adidas.com, Foot Locker, etc. for $160.
