After a 25-game suspension from the NBA, Ja Morant is finally making his official season debut tonight. To celebrate his return, Nike has been busy adding to Morant's collection of signature shoes. One of the latest additions is a monochrome version of the Nike Ja 1, featuring the Memphis Grizzlies claw marks.
Debuting on the original "Scratch" design, paying homage to the team's vintage Vancouver uniforms, the newest Ja 1 showcases bold claw imprints that traverse the clean white outsole, tinged with a deep black hue. The Zoom Air-enhanced silhouette remains faithful to a grayscale theme, with a distinct absence of color dominating the mesh upper, tongue, and inner lining.
In striking juxtaposition, the sole unit boasts a pitch-black counterpart, while the mudguard and quarter overlays exhibit a textured tumbled leather finish, adorned with profile swooshes. A sleek gray heel counter brings the endeavor to a stylish conclusion.
As we eagerly anticipate additional information about the release, take pleasure in examining the intricacies of the Nike Ja 1 "Scratch 2.0" presented below. It will be released in 2024, with $120 retail price.
By the way, Nike Ja 1 will release a new version sneaker for 2024 Chinese New Year, which uses metallic gold elements adorning the profile swoosh and heel tab.
