The Nike Ja 1 “Bright Mandarin/Vapor Green”

Despite injuries and disappointments, Ja Morant is one of the most electrifying players in the NBA today. Nike recognized his greatness by giving him his first signature shoe last year. The Nike Ja 1 “Bright Mandarin/Vapor Green” launches at Shoe Palace stores this April 19.

Bright Mandarin/Vapor Green

Even though Ja missed practically the entirety of the 2023-2024 season, he still will have one of the more intriguing releases from Nike basketball this year. The Bright Mandarin/Vapor Green uses the colors of mint and orange, with each shoe receiving a different color. Contrasting two sneakers is an eye-catching feature on the silhouette. Despite the color difference, the layout of the shoes is consistent on both pairs. The mismatched pair of Ja 1 sneakers should be a hot seller with the summer months upcoming.



At 6’3, Ja is a point guard who can do anything on the basketball court. His handles and court vision are at an elite level. What really makes him special is his athleticism. His speed is second to none on the court, he can get from point A to B in a flash. What makes Ja a regular on social media and YouTube mixtapes is his explosiveness when attacking the rim. His dunks are some of the best and most ferocious of all time. His elevation and hangtime are seemingly limitless. Ja Morant is one of the most exciting and talented players in the NBA. There seems to be no limit to what he could accomplish in the league, whether it is MVP trophies or championship rings. The future of Ja Morant is extremely bright.

The Future

Ja Morant has achieved a lot in his short career. Largely because of Morant, the Memphis Grizzlies are currently contenders. It would not be a stretch to believe that Morant could be the best player in the league within the next 5 years. The Nike and Ja partnership is just getting started and it will be exciting to see what they create as a pair in the future.
