Despite recent backlash for his poor performance in Game 2 of the 2022 NBA Finals, standout player Jayson Tatum appears to be the Jordan Brand's future face, as the label prepares to release Jordan Series Taco Jay shoes.

The Jordan Series “Taco Jay” exclusive edition will hit the sneaker world on Friday, June 17, 2022, at 10.00 am EST. These Jayson Tatum’s inspired low-top sneakers will arrive with a $80 price tag. You may get them from Nike's e-commerce outlets as well as from select affiliated sellers.

The Missouri native has had a significant number of Air Jordan exclusives in the past, with a latest Jordan Series drop adding to the Boston Celtics' growing collection of Jumpman-branded crossovers. The latest Jordan Series features "Taco Jay" graphics and branding throughout the sock-liner and tongue tags, prompted by previous pairs that Jayson wore on the court.

Explaining the reason behind creating the latest “Taco Jay” edition, the Nike’s official website says,

“Jayson Tatum's nickname is "Taco Jay" for a reason. These kicks rep his post-game craving—fun graphics abound and "TACO JAY" is written on the insole and pull tabs.”
Joining the Air Jordan 36, Jordan Brand will also be releasing a special edition “Taco Jay” colorway of the Jordan Series.>>Jordan Series “Taco Jay”Color: White/Citron Pulse-Atomic Green-BlackStyle Code: DN4023-108Release Date: June 17, 2022Price: $80Official Photos https://t.co/1vDY9uMeei

The "Taco Jay" theme was inspired by his family's practice of eating tacos after matches, and it uses hues like Citron Pulse, Atomic Green, and Cone to represent corn tortillas and guacamole.

The product description of the footwear on the shoe manufacturer’s website reads,

“Old meets new in this flavorful take on a Jordan Brand essential. Inspired by Jayson Tatum's love of tacos, the crisp real and synthetic leather and textile design is seasoned with bold colors that nod to his favorite toppings. Playful graphics add plenty of spice to the breathable construction with a hint of stretch.”

The sneaker sports an all-leather upper, which is adorned with a color scheme of white, black, saucy yellow, green, and orange. The perforations of the white toe boxes are complemented with yellow leathers that make up the eyelets. In between this yellow makeup, a touch of guacamole green is added along with orange stitching that resembles the taco’s hot sauce.

These bright yellow eyelets are then paired up with black tongues as well as black laces held by the eyelets. Moving on, these solid black tongues are embellished with a prominent “TACO JAY” labeling on one end.

Ultimately, the collars and heels are fashioned in black, while the vivid orange insoles are stamped with serious taco caricatures and dotted with black all over. On looking closely, you can see that these caricatures are beautifully combined with Nike swooshes.

Each pair will be sold for $195.
