The New Orleans Pelicans didn’t necessarily have successful run they wanted for the 2020-2021 season, but one of its youngest and brightest stars Zion Williamson surely made his impact felt across the league in his sophomore season. He had an impressive year on the court by becoming the youngest NBA All-Star since LeBron James and he launched his first signature sneaker with Jordan Brand: the Jordan Zion 1. The silhouette has is now gearing up for its newest colorway launch titled the “Noah” which is inspired by his little brother.

In the midst of trying to figure out what sneaker brand to sign to prior to his start in the Association, there was a visit to the Jumpman’s campus where the team gave his little brother a clean white Air Jordan 1 and a box of crayons for him to style it to his own liking. Like any 5-year old would do, Noah went wild with the scribbles and multiple colors, and it’s this moment that inspired the theme for this latest Zion 1 makeup. “It goes beyond just a little kid’s scribbles,” Zion says when speaking on his flashy new installment. “Noah just lights up any room he goes into. He has to be the most confident kid I’ve ever met in my life.”

Forefoot and toe box areas of the kicks are designed with simple black and white color-blocking allowing the heel sections and outsoles to do all of the talking. Each are treated with multi-colored “Zion” letters that are dispersed in alphabet soup-like fashion.

Expect these vibrant, court-ready kicks to launch via Nike and select retailers on May 19 for $120 USD.

In case you missed it, a “Storm Blue”-inspired Air Jordan 1 Mid colorway has surfaced.
