It looks like James Harden is about to be in HUGE trouble. The NBA player was already spotted wearing Nike sneakers out once after signing a massive deal with Adidas, and now he’s done it again!
James Harden, 26, recently left Nike to sign a 13-year, $200 million deal with Adidas but he’s already crossing some major lines! Adidas spoke out after he wore Nikes for the first time after signing the Adidas deal, but it looks like he didn’t care because, on September 19, Khloe Kardashian‘s boyfriend wore Nikes AGAIN at the TAO 10 Year Anniversary in Las Vegas! See what Nike has to say about the whole ordeal.
James was first caught wearing Air Jordans by TMZ on September 14 while walking out of a movie theater with Khloe. Oddly enough, Khloe was wearing Adidas during their outing! Clearly upset that James was not wearing the brand, Adidas’ Mark King said he will have to stop wearing Nike’s when his Adidas deal officially commences Oct. 1. “That’s part of the deal,” Mark told ESPN.
“The difference between football and basketball is that a guy like Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have a walk-around shoe. Harden does, and he will be in our lifestyle stuff,” he explained. James was seen out yet again wearing a pair of Nike Air Jordan XII Retro Black on September 19 at TAO! You can see the EXCLUSIVE pic above. We wonder if this will damage his million dollar deal!
