Memphis Grizzlies star point guard Ja Morant may be sidelined at the start of the new season due to a suspension, but his fans remain as dedicated as ever. Recently, Nike released the latest Zombie colorway of Morant’s first signature sneaker, and it caused a shopping frenzy among his devoted supporters.
A Slightly Bumpy Start for Nike Ja 1
The rollout of the Nike Ja 1 hasn’t been entirely smooth, with its initial release delayed last spring due to a suspension Morant was serving. However, this hiccup hasn’t diminished the popularity of Morant’s signature kicks.
The Zombie edition of the Nike Ja 1 hit the market on Friday, October 20. Sports enthusiasts and fans eagerly awaited this Halloween themed release, and within minutes, the sneakers were sold out online.
Discovering the Nike Ja 1 Zombie
The Nike Ja 1 Zombie boasts a distinctive green and brown color scheme, adorned with a spooky design featuring eerie hands on the heels and medial Swoosh logos. Priced at $130, these kicks are already reselling for over $200 on sneaker resale websites.
For budget conscious shoppers, multiple colorways of Morant’s inaugural signature sneaker are still available on the Nike website. These performance basketball shoes feature a lightweight mesh upper and a forefoot Zoom Air unit for enhanced on court responsiveness.
Morant’s Ascension in the NBA and the World of Sneakers
Ja Morant has established himself as one of the NBA’s most marketable young talents. Assuming the 24 year old can maintain his presence on the court, he’s poised to be a significant force in both the world of basketball and the sneaker industry.
