NBA All-Star and Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant will finally receive his own signature shoe, known as the Nike Ja 1. Here you will find all the release dates and upcoming colorways of the Ja 1.

Ja Morant Nike Ja 1 Release Date

Morant is Nike Basketball’s first Gen Z signature athlete. His bold, fearless style of play represents the evolution of the game and ignites a spark in modern basketball culture. Morant sets an example for Gen Z athletes everywhere as a leader who creates the future of the sport through his creativity, authenticity and style.

Morant’s signature logo is inspired by his dynamic precision and determined approach to the game. The logo features a stylized “JA” sitting above a chevron, which represents both a directional nod to the verticality, speed and sharpness of Morant’s game, and his ability to rise above all obstacles. When Morant was overlooked and under-recruited in college, his motto, “Beneath No One,” fueled the workouts that helped develop him into a player that is defining the future of basketball.

It’s constructed to keep players in control, maximize hang time, and reduce landing force through lockdown benefits. More details of the shoe will be announced in early 2023.

There are three colorways of the Nike Ja 1 scheduled to release (so far). This includes ‘Phantom,’ ‘Cobalt Bliss,’ and ‘Game Royal.’ Each pair will come with special Ja Morant branding, and more than likely, the colorways will tell a special story.
