Los Angeles Clippers guard, James “The Beard” Harden has found the perfect item to go with his signature J-Harden Wines.
According to Sports Illustrated, the basketball-playing entrepreneur arrived in Toronto last Friday night, Jan. 26 to play a game against the Raptors and he brought a special item with him to Scotiabank Arena. Harden, who has his own signature wine, J-Harden Wines debuted his latest adidas signature sneaker to show off the colors of the Harden sneaker that matched the same colors from the J-Harden Wines bottle.
His eighth version of the sneaker made by the German sneaker brand embodies the same pink, black, and blue colors that the wine displays.

Harden was seen walking into the arena carrying the sneakers and the wine bottle in a see-through case, showing off the footwear before going out to help his team beat the Raptors by a score of 127-107.
The newly revealed sneakers helped make him the eighth player in NBA history to have 75 games where he recorded a triple-double. The latest version of adidas Harden Vol. 8 is slated to come out on February 23, 2024. It is not known if the same colors will be made available for sale to the general public.
Complex reported that the details and color of the adidas footwear were taken from the 2020 California Red Wine bottle’s graphic. The bottle usually retails for $15.99.
“The Beard” is having a good year on the court and off it as well. Last year before he was traded to the Clippers at the start of the season, while in China, he was able to sell 10,000 bottles of his signature wine within 10 seconds. If you blinked and sneezed, chances are, you missed an opportunity to buy a bottle as it sold out within 10 seconds of announcing that it could be purchased during a live stream.
At the time of the wine sale, he was in China promoting his signature sneaker.
