When searching for Nike Ja 1, you want be able to find the sneaker online. Nike and Finish Line have removed the shoe from their apps and online sites.
Sneaker heads were looking out for The Hunger Ja 1s; which were expected to release May 25. The red and blue colorway was listed on both the Nike and Finish Line apps earlier this week. Nike's website has also removed listings of all previous Ja'Morant shoes. The SNKRS app, owned by Nike still list the Hunger Ja 1s as available for order through raffle.
Nike signed Morant in 2019 to a multi-year shoe deal. The 23-year-old NBA star has a sponsorship with Powerade as well. He also signed a five-year contract extension with the Grizzlies for $193 million guaranteed.
Morant's sponsors are all in a frenzy over his recent suspension from the Grizzlies after a video of him on instagram brandishing a gun surfaced. This makes the second time Ja' Morant has been in suspended over waving a gun.
Ja' Morant was previously suspended eight games by the NBA following the March 4th incident where he brandished a gun in a Colorado night club. The incident led to Nike delaying the release of the first Ja 1 sneaker.
Ja' Morant has apologized to the NBA and fans for his behavior and mentioned he has "more work to do."
