Table of contents

Flagship player of Jordan Brand alongside Zion Williamson and Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum will be entitled to his first model of signature shoes. The name was immediately found: it will be “JT 1”. While the first name is usually attached to a number, this time it is the initials of the player who have been chosen for Jayson Tatum. Here is all the information known to date concerning the Jordan JT 1.

What does Jordan JT 1 look like?

The first images of the Jordan JT 1 have leaked online. Jayson Tatum had himself announced the future release of his own pair of sneakers. Nevertheless, he never revealed any visual of the model. We just know that the star of the Boston Celtics visited Nike headquarters in the summer of 2022, and that he actively participated in the development of this signature model.

Characteristics of Jayson Tatum shoes

Jayson Tatum is an all-around player. He can do everything well on the basketball court. If we were to determine his main strength, it would be his ability to score from anywhere. Logically, the Jordan JT 1 must help its flagship muse achieve its goals. And these are very high for Tatum! It’s about winning the NBA title and being crowned MVP of the season. His pair of shoes can only meet very demanding criteria. It can’t be otherwise for one of the very best players in the championship.

At first glance, the Jordan JT 1s appear to be quite solid shoes. They should perfectly hold the foot and ankle. Aesthetically, it is not the most beautiful model of 2023. We are far from the most beautiful shoes in the Air Jordan collection. However, it depends on everyone’s taste. But the essence is elsewhere! At the highest level, the performance side prevails over the pair’s beauty.

JT 1: the different colors

Signature basketball models usually come in multiple colorways. The Jordan JT 1 are not going to escape it. One of them pays homage to his son Deuce. While another puts the spotlight on his hometown of Saint-Louis. A third “Pink Lemonade” colorway is expected for the shoes worn by Jayson Tatum. We look forward to seeing the result! Obviously, other colors should be added after the release of the pair.

Jordan JT 1: release date

The Jordan JT 1s are eagerly awaited by the player himself and his fans. As of this writing, the wait is short. Indeed, the release date of this model is scheduled for March 2023. However, most of the colors unveiled so far will only be available from the current April.

The price of Jayson Tatum shoes

The Jordan brand is renowned for offering fairly high prices to consumers. We are talking about shoes most often approaching 200 dollars than 100 dollars. This will not really be the case for this Jordan JT 1. Jordan Brand’s pricing policy for this first Jayson Tatum signature model should not exceed 130 dollars. To tell the truth, a unique price of 120 dollars has been mentioned on the web. All that remains is to wait for the formalization of the firm to know for sure…
