Ja Morant Ja 1 "Wet Cement" Basketball Shoes Ja Morant grew up playing ball on a cement court in his backyard. The rain never stopped him from putting in the work. Ja 1 "Wet Cement" honors the games played and drills done regardless of the weather. Like every Ja 1, this pair is molded to optimize hang time while helping to maintain stability with firm cushioning. That on-court control is what helps you respond quickly for verticality.
Cemented Status Check out the reflective Swoosh logo, speckled midsole and marble outsole. Each is an ode to Ja’s backyard concrete court. That’s where Ja, his dad and other hoopers from Ja's hometown honed their craft, both back in the day and even now when the rising superstar feels like he needs to get back to his roots. Prepare for Liftoff A forefoot Zoom Air unit helps provide increased responsiveness and vertical acceleration. Plush cushioning in the midsole provides comfort when you come back to Earth after skying in the clouds. Stay Supported A containment system and forefoot strap help keep your ankle and heel stable, so that you’re in control and supported whether you’re changing directions at high speeds, springing toward the rim or staying in front of shifty ball-handlers on defense. Lightweight, breathable material on the upper helps keep your feet cool. Raised foam collar adds ankle support.
