Your love for the game never fades. That's why the Tatum 1 was created with longevity in mind. Designed to carry you from the first through the fourth (and whatever OT comes up) as efficiently as possible, we stripped it down to the essentials—and made those essentials really, really good. The result is this season's lightest performance basketball shoe, with rubber only where it counts, a stress-tested foam midsole and an uncaged Nike Zoom Air unit for those explosive ups. Whatever stage of ball you're at, the Tatum 1 will keep you playing.
Rubber (Only) Where It Counts Rubber is heavy, so we did away with as much as possible. But we kept it where it matters most: the forefoot and toe, where you push forward for big drives. Reinforced Foam We wrapped foam around a strong plastic frame in the midsole for lightweight structure. Then, we stress-tested it to make sure it holds up for the full 48. Minimalist Support Lightweight mesh in the upper is strong, breathable and helps you feel supported for the whole game (and the next game, and the next...). Uncaged Air A Nike Zoom Air unit (visible from the bottom of the shoe) helps get you the ups you’re looking for without weighing you down.
