Starting off on the wrong foot?! Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend, James Harden, wore Nike Air Jordans for a night out with his lady on Friday, Sept. 11, after signing a $200 million Adidas deal.
The Houston Rockets player, 26, sported a casual getup with his sneakers while Kardashian, 31, ironically, was decked out in an Adidas sweatshirt and pants for their Straight Outta Compton movie date in Calabasas, Calif.
Last month, the baller, who was previously endorsed by Nike, signed the massive deal after Nike failed to match Adidas’ offer. “We’re a brand of creators and James embodies that more than any athlete in the game,” Chris Grancio, Adidas’ Global Basketball General Manager, said in a statement to USA Today. “His addition to the Adidas basketball family is a game changer. This partnership gives him the opportunity to achieve his goals and express himself in a totally new way as a creator. He’s already one of the most recognizable sports figures because of his game, his look, his hunger to win and his style on and off the court. His ceiling is far from reached, which tells you the future for him and our brand looks incredible.”
According to TMZ, the athlete’s deal, however, doesn’t officially kick off until Oct. 1 and includes off-court signature footwear and apparel collections.
Lamar Odom’s ex-wife first stepped out with Harden in Las Vegas in July. Last month, she threw the NBA pro a lavish all-white themed 26th birthday party aboard a yacht in Marina Del Rey, Calif.
