Jayson Tatum’s signature silhouette with Jordan Brand leaks early ahead of its April 2023 debut.
The roster of talent in the NBA that has received a signature silhouette is slim with under 30 individuals spanning the entire 450-plus-player league, reserving this highlight moment for only the most elite ball players. As we reported in 2022, the king of Jordan PEs, Jayson Tatum, is set to receive his first signature silhouette with Jordan Brand in 2023, though we have not had any images of the model… until now. Thanks to kicksvision on Instagram, we now have the first look at the Jordan Tatum 1 in the “Zoo” colorway.
Coming in a “Black/Metallic Gold-University Red-Beach” color scheme, the sneaker appears to take some DNA from CP3s signature line with JB and utilizes an engineered mesh upper in all-black that contains intricate graphics similar to that of “Laser” Jordan releases. Back on the heel, an acid-wash red look takes over with a Jumpman logo in gold breaking up the black/red combo. Jayson Tatum’s logo is barely visible in these early photos, though we do see that “T” gets embroidered in a light tan shade atop the black tongue. As for tech within the sneaker, it is currently a mystery, though expect one of Jordan Brand’s latest cushioning technologies such as Formula 23 to come encapsulated in the TPU and foam sole unit.
In a post-game interview hours after the alleged Jordan Tatum 1 leaked, Jayson Tatum himself stated that the early photo is "not the real picture" and "not necessarily exactly how they look." The pair could be an early prototype, a different colorway that was not approved, or even a fake sneaker entirely, though the language he used in this interview was not definitive in regards to the authenticity of the sneaker's design. Even still, release info for the "Zoo" colorway is spelled out down below.
The Jordan Tatum 1 Zoo is set to release on April 7th, 2023 through Nike and select Jordan Brand retailers online and in-store. Coming in full family sizing, the retail prices are as follows: $120 (men), $90 (GS), $75 (PS), and $55 (TD). Keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app for more updates on the Tatum’s signature line with Jordan Brand and more in the sneaker and streetwear world.
