Jayson Tatum is known for his prolific scoring, but he’s also known for his love of tacos. After every game, Tatum enjoys a post-game feast of tacos served with cheesy, spicy sauce. And he’s not the only one; his in game sneakers, the Air Jordan 36 often joins him for a taco feast. The duo has even given themselves a nickname: the Air Jordan 36 Nitro Taco Jay PE. Why tacos? “They are the perfect food; they’re portable, they’re easy to eat, and they’re delicious.” Plus, the cheese and sauce help Tatum stay fueled up for the next game.
The Jordan 36 Nitro Taco Jay is certainly a brightly colored summer sneaker. Its Citron Pulse upper is made of leno-weave, making it both durable and breathable. The same hue is seen in the suede upper half of the sneaker, with green and orange accenting throughout. Tatum’s Taco logo can be seen on the lace pocket and insole, with the heel pull tab reading “Taco Jay.” The tongue and its tab are both made of green suede, mimicking lettuce on a taco. Citron Pulse is used again on the midsole, with Atomic Green seen on the midsole accents.
This sneaker will sure turn heads and have you feeling summer ready. If you plan scooping up a pair, refer to the details below
