Jayson Tatum Links Up with Nike for an Air Max 97Release: 15 June 2019
While Jayson Tatum continues to find his rhythm in the NBA, it seems like he’s looking to the fastest silhouette in the Swoosh catalogue for inspiration: the Nike Air Max 97 rendered in the colours of Chaminade College Preparatory School in Creve Coeur.
Taking aesthetic cues from the Red Devils, the Air Max 97 features illustrations on the mudguard that allude to Tatum’s Saint Louis roots (including the famous Gateway Arch and 314 area code).
The red and black upper is complemented with a Silver midsole and grey rubber outsole, while the tongues don ‘Tatum’ and his nickname ‘The Deuce’.
The Nike Air Max 97 by Jayson Tatum releases on June 13 at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, with a wider drop scheduled for June 15.
