For the past few years, Ja Morant and Nike have been heavily collaborating. Morant often appeared in Nike sweatsuits and rotated signature sneakers from KD and Kobe several times. Additionally, after an electrifying season, the NBA basketball player has certainly earned the right to a first signature sneaker.
According to rumours, Nike and the Memphis Grizzlies phenom are reportedly planning a first signature sneaker. The model is to be called Nike Ja 1, which may drop next year.
Three colourways are possibly already planned. The three colourways are said to be "Phantom/Action Green", "Cobalt Bliss/Citron Tint", and "Game Royal/Black". Unfortunately, no further details on the models exist at this time.
