A long-running Player Exclusive for Jayson Tatum is finally releasing as the colorway of the Air Jordan 36 is set to release on June 17th. Inspired by his family’s tradition of eating tacos after games, the “Taco Jay” theme features colors that reflect corn tortillas and guacamole based on the Citron Pulse, Atomic Green, and Cone colorway. Aside from the color treatment on these Jordan 36s, this upcoming release features a serious taco mascot with a Swoosh logo mimicking Tatum’s signature eyebrows.
Air Jordan XXXVI Nitro Features
- Jayson Tatum’s favorite food is tacos, which is why he goes by the nickname Taco Jay. Fun taco graphics abound while “TACO JAY” is written on the insole and pull tabs.
- Bold colors add energy to every step while nodding to Tatum’s toppings of choice: extra cheese and hot sauce.
- A full-length Zoom Air Strobel unit is stitched directly to the upper, sitting right under your foot to minimize weight. Meanwhile, an energy-returning Zoom Air unit is stacked underneath the forefoot to add an extra burst of responsiveness off the dribble.
- High sidewalls paired with a 2-loop band system provide side-to-side stability, whether you’re cutting off the ball or taking off to finish.
- The multidirectional outsole pattern provides stop-and-go traction for players who stay on their toes and use quickness to get to their spots.
- The dynamic, flexible tongue includes targeted padding over the top to ease lace pressure, providing plush comfort without added weight.
- The hollowed-out section between the outsole and midsole helps reduce weight and exposes the shoe’s stabilizing shank (a piece of durable plastic that helps keep the shoe from twisting).
