The best style advice you can take from James Harden is how to grow the trillest of beards, but the Houston Rockets guard also knows a thing or two about comfortable basketball socks. And his socks of choice are the new Nike Hyperelite socks.

In two comical videos with WNBA star Nneka Ogwumike, Harden tells you that, "Your socks are not an after-thought, your socks will build an empire."

Which is true, to a certain extent. If you're stuck in white ankle socks, your outfit is going to lose every ounce of potential swag that it could ever muster, no matter where you are. After Harden discusses the technical benefits of the new Nike socks—comfort, cushioning, and protecting your feet—he also tells us that he wears his socks in the shower. 

Even if you're not battling on the hardwood this fall, you still need socks that are going to keep your feet warm. And the Hyperelite socks will keep them fly, too. They're Dri-Fit like the previous Elite socks, and come in a myriad of bright colors.

We're not saying these socks will help you flush it on people when you ball up, but think to yourself, would James Harden lie to you?
