    These are pretty horrendous... wtf was adidas thinking??? Twitter is giving them the Curry treatment. The Curry's looked like they were made for middle-aged men, but these look like they were made for hobos.

    i don't get signature shoes, does this mean he will wear these in games?

    also I'm sure they look a bit better when their on his foot and laced up, but still crappy

    Well at least the hobo shoes will match his hobo beard



    Yet Adidas also gave him $200 million to rep these...

    I don't buy that this is legit how the shoes will be since they haven't been released and nothing about this is official.

    i remember buying some like these at payless to wear while I hooped so I wouldn't ruin the more expensive ones. those were the late 90s. good times.

    There is no way those are his new, finished shoes.

    Adidas makes some awful looking shoes. It started with the Kobe Marvin the Martian shoes.

    I have a friend who works at the Adidas store, and I thought that the JH shoes weren't coming until December. Does anyone with knowledge know for sure that these are the new ones? I'd kind of be shocked if they were seen over 3 months early.

    Not one of those Twitter jokes were even a lil' bit funny. One fugly shoe, surely someone can make at least one comment that would make me snicker a little bit?

    They are supposed to release in December but this image leaked out. I don't think this is the finished product. No way Harden signs off on this crap.

    This is really important, because when I'm watching a Rockets game the thing I'm really focused on is what their shoes look like.

    There are Chinese symbols in the backgrounds of those pictures.

    Tells me these shoes and pictures come from China.

    That makes me highly skeptical of their authenticity.

    Seems like China would be the best source of a leak, as they are probably being made there. So the first one is taken my someone earlier in the assembly line before color,etc is applied
