Jayson Tatum is set to lace up his very own signature shoe as a member of the Jordan brand.
As reported by Nicholas Vlahos of Sole Retriever, the Boston Celtics superstar is expected to debut his signature shoe this upcoming season which will be dubbed as “Jordan Tatum 1.” The said name remains as a subject to change.
Added by Vlahos, the Jordan Tatum 1 will be released in three colorways which are inspired by several things associated with him, namely: the “Zoo” (for his son, Deuce, who loves to go to zoos); the “St. Louis” (his hometown) and; the “Pink Lemonade” (one of his favorite drinks).
Tatum inked a multi-year shoe deal with the Jordan brand in 2019, joining fellow NBA stars in Luka Doncic, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony Russell Westbrook and Zion Williamson.
He is coming off from an NBA Finals finish with the Celtics in the previous 2021-2022 season. Averaging career-highs in points (26.9), boards (8.0) and assists (4.4), he was named to his first All-NBA First Team selection.
