Boston Celtics forward and Nike athlete Jayson Tatum will soon be getting his very own version of the Air Max 97. Shown above, the Jayson Tatum x Nike Air Max 97 pays 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. Illustrations on the upper represent the Tatum’s Saint Louis roots, including graphics of the Gateway Arch (also referenced through the shoe’s metallic silver midsole), his 314 area code and more. Finishing details include silver tongues that read, “Tatum” and “The Deuce” as a nod to his nickname, along with silver midsoles featuring Air Max cushioning.
The Jayson Tatum x Nike Air Max 97 will release on June 13th exclusively at House of Hoops locations followed by a wider release on June 15th at select Foot Locker locations.
