The Nike Ja 1 “Christmas” Arrives This Holiday Season

"Climbing up the chimney" this Christmas.

While Ja Morant and his debut signature haven’t seen much NBA action in the latter half of 2023 due to an ongoing suspension, the two-time All-Star is eyeing a late December return to the Memphis Grizzlies’ lineup. While Morant and the Grizzlies won’t make an appearance on Christmas Day, Morant and the Nike Ja 1 will be releasing in a belated “Christmas” edition the following morning.

Draping its breathable mesh upper in a vibrant clad-“Fuchsia Dream”, the titular violent shade bleeds into the smooth leather overlays via an “Emerald Rise” gradient that concentrates along the Zoom-infused midsole. Complemented by a darker “Canyon Purple” across its outsole, the upper employs a clarifying jet-black profile swoosh. Elsewhere, the model’s synonymous mismatched embellishments appear at the heel counter and tongue tabs while the insoles bear a Christmas-themed chimney that doubles as a nod to Morant’s infamous “We climb up the chimney” quote.

The Nike Ja 1 “Christmas” is tentatively scheduled to release on December 19th for a retail price of $130 USD. In the meantime, the pair can be seen ahead in detailed imagery.

For more on-court silhouettes, the KD 3 “Christmas” arrives on December 23rd.
