Designed with Tatum’s relentless work ethic in mind, the Tatum 2 features a full-length Nike Air Strobel unit. This cushioning innovation absorbs the shockwaves of explosive drives and acrobatic finishes, keeping you fresh as the game heats up. “Jayson needs a long-lasting ride,” said Bryant Klug, Jordan Brand’s expert footwear designer. “The Air Strobel gives him the smooth heel-to-toe transition he craves and feels like an extension of his foot.

And the Tatum 2 is a testament to Tatum’s ice-cold demeanor under pressure. Strategically placed foam and textile pods on the upper wrap around the foot like a protective hug, providing lockdown stability without sacrificing agility. “We were inspired by Jayson’s poise in clutch situations,” says Klug, “and wanted to capture that ‘no pressure’ feeling for everyone who wears the Tatum 2.

Don’t let the featherweight construction fool you. The Tatum 2’s outsole packs a punch with its modified herringbone traction pattern. Key areas where players need the most traction are reinforced for decisive cuts and explosive stops without adding unnecessary bulk. It’s a testament to Jordan Brand’s commitment to making the Tatum line the lightest in its performance portfolio, so you can fly down the court like Jayson Tatum himself.

Tatum’s impact goes beyond the court. Like his first signature shoe, the Tatum 2 for kids features a collapsible tailgate on the heel, a detail inspired by Tatum’s desire to make it easy for young ballers to get in and out of the shoe. “I hope consumers appreciate how much we put into this shoe,” Tatum says, reflecting on the collaboration with the Jordan Brand design team to create a kid-specific design that’s both functional and stylish.
