Brooklyn Nets superstar playmaker James Harden on Friday wore a pair of Adidas kicks with a colorway depicting the Philippine flag. 

The sneakers were designed by Filipino artist and toy designer Juanito Maiquez, whose nickname Quiccs was also engraved on Harden's kicks.

The shoes — paraded during Game 3 of the Nets’ first-round, Eastern Conference series with the Boston Celtics to coincide with the national flag day on May 28 — were a part of Maiquez’s collaboration with Adidas, which signed him to a 2-year deal for a line of toys, apparel, and shoes.
