While adidas is slowly working its way toward the official unveiling of James Harden's first signature sneaker, photos of the upcoming release may already be surfacing.

Pictured here is what's believed to be the adidas James Harden 1, expected to launch later this year. After leading the Crazylight Boost franchise during his first year with the brand, Harden gets a visually similar model with a bootie-style fit, rear 3-Stripe branding, asymmetrical lacing and a layered toe cap. Not many of the more intricate details are visible in this initial look, but adidas did unveil Harden's new logo earlier this month.

There's still plenty to learn about the Harden 1, and we'll continue to follow the story leading up to its December release date.
