Jayson Tatum x Jordan Tatum 1 "Hesi-Tatum" shoes: Everything we know so far 

Jayson Tatum, the Celtics' star and longstanding partner of the Jordan Brand, presented his own trademark style, the Jordan Tatum 1. Tatum 1, the season's lightest sneaker, was created by the Jordan Brand's performance division for the next generation of athletes. Most recently, Jayson was spotted wearing a fresh colorway of his signature shoe.

The new colorway, named "Hesi-Tatum," will be the Player's Exclusive variant of the shoe and is not expected to be launched for the general public.

Jayson Tatum is one of the NBA's emerging talents and an ecstatic member of the Jordan Brand. With his debut signature sneaker, the Jordan Tatum 1, the Boston Celtics forward has stunned spectators with his basketball abilities and sense of flair on the court. The Jordan Tatum 1 "Hesi-Tatum" PE shoe, which Tatum donned in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat, is the latest colorway of his first Jordan Brand signature shoe.

The Jordan Tatum 1 is the season's lightest performance shoe from the Jordan Brand, giving the upcoming generation of athletes everything they need to succeed. With a mesh top, a suede mudguard, a leather heel covering, and a TPU midfoot panel, the shoe features a streamlined and cutting-edge style.


A Zoom Air unit for responsive padding is also featured in the shoe, along with a Flightwire system for tightening reinforcement and a herringbone sole for agility.

The model boasts a dark purple mesh foundation with purple TPU tongue flaps, lace sets, and toppings. Compared to the purple tones, the shoe also features striking pops of pink on the TPU around the toe box and parts of the mid-foot, as well as the heel counter.

The "Hesi-Tatum" writing, which appears in a mix of pink and aqua blue, humorously pointing out Tatum's hesitation on the court, is located in the heel area. The Jumpman and JT symbols then feature this color combination once more. The design is finished off with a purple foam midsole and outer sole unit.

In addition to being chic, the Jordan Tatum 1 "Hesi-Tatum" PE trainers also feature decorative elements that capture Tatum's character and journey.


The 2019 tandem between Jayson Tatum and Jordan Brand is also represented by the Jordan Tatum 1 "Hesi-Tatum" PE sneakers. Tatum joins superstars like Michael Jordan, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, and Zion Williamson as one of the few athletes to get his own signature shoe under the illustrious brand.

The inspiration and features of the newly designed Jordan Tatum 1 shoes are underlined on Nike's newsroom, which reads:

“The Tatum 1 was born out of Tatum’s desire to wear a shoe that felt more connected to his foot. Built out of a lightweight, strong TPU frame, the shoe is wrapped by a ground-contact foam that also acts as an integrated traction pattern, with minimal rubber on the toe and ball of the foot for Tatum’s predominantly forefoot game.”

Tatum has additionally displayed his originality and power by working with the Jordan Brand on a number of initiatives, including designing clothing lines, running basketball clinics, and donating sneakers to his community.


Fans and other curious readers can stay tuned to Swoosh's official web page or the SNKRS app for more information on the future colorways of the shoe.
