Is there anything more striking than a bold red colourway? I mean, some of Jordan Brands’ best releases feature vibrant red hues. From the scarlet matte and metallic shades of the Air Jordan 1 “Pomegranate” to the flaming red nubuck elements found on the Air Jordan 14 “Gym Red”, this powerful hue has always been a colour that demands attention on any sneaker. Now, the Jordan Tatum 1 “University Red” continues this trend with its predominantly red colourway. This sneaker is a perfect example of how a healthy dousing of red can instantly elevate a shoe’s aesthetic. Its vibrant “University Red” upper adds an undeniable level of flair to this already stylish performance shoe and certainly stands out among the other colourways set to release in Jayson Tatum’s signature line.
For those who don’t already know, the Jumpman has teamed up with the Boston Celtics forward, Jayson Tatum, to create a line of sneakers that reflect his personal style and on-court performance. Touted as the lightest shoe in this season’s performance line, the Tatum 1 combines innovative technology with a sleek design to deliver unmatched comfort and support on the basketball court. While the sneaker is still set to release a variety of different styles this year, such as its multicoloured “Wave Runner” offering and the Jordan 11-inspired “Cool Grey” look, the upcoming “University Red” colourway happens to be particularly eye-catching. After all, what can top a pop of white against a bold red background?
The Jordan Tatum 1 “University Red” features two-tone colour blocking that combines the bold “University Red” hue with crisp white accents to create a striking contrast that demands attention on and off the court. The upper is predominantly covered in all-red mesh, with the laces and inner lining also adopting the same vibrant shade. The white accents can be seen on the mid-foot caging system and sole unit, which add a clean and modern contrast to the overall design. The clean white shade can also be found on the sneaker’s branding, such as the iconic Jumpman and signature JT logos. These white accents not only enhance the visual appeal of the sneakers but also provide a sense of balance to the bold red colour scheme. Overall, these sneakers are sure to be a winner in the Tatum 1’s already impressive lineup.
While there is no official release date for the Jordan Tatum 1 “University Red”, rumours have been circulating that it will drop sometime in the next few months. The sneaker will be available for purchase through the Nike website and retail stores, the SNKRS app, and a few other Jordan brand stores for $120. There will also be a ton of other great offerings from the Tatum 1 line this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for those as well.
