The Jayson Tatum x Nike Air Max 97 is an upcoming variation of the runner that celebrates Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum. Created as an homage to Tatum’s Chaminade College Preparatory School in Creve Coeur, Missouri, the shoe is covered in the school’s Red Devils colors with red and black on the uppers, followed by printed basketball cartoon graphics applied on its mudguard. It also features drawings of the iconic St. Louis Gateway Arch. Finishing details include silver tongues that read, “Tatum” and “The Deuce” as a nod to his nickname, along with a silver midsole to further symbolize the stainless steel Gateway Arch.
Look for the Jayson Tatum x Nike Air Max 97 at House of Hoops by Foot Locker on June 13, followed by a wider release at Foot Locker locations on June 15. via KicksonFire.com
