Superstar Pelicans forward Zion Williamson has just become Jordan Brand’s first Gen-Z athlete with his own signature sneaker.

In creating the Zion 1, Jordan Brand designers strived to create a model that would enable Williamson’s physical tools on the court, while also illustrating his unique personal traits. The team also chose to display a letter “Z” across the silhouette’s lateral to reflect Williamson’s superhero armor inspiration. Jordan Sport Senior Footwear Designer, Vianny de Montgolfier, commented on this addition saying, “It’s the letter for speed, it has the base for power, and it’s maybe the most distinguishable letter in the alphabet. There’s nothing else like it.”

Four colorways of the Zion 1 have been debuted and confirmed so far including the “Gen Zion,” “ZNA,” “Noah,” and “Marion.” The “Gen Zion” comes in a classic black and white color scheme to reflect Williamson’s ideology that, “if you can master the simple things, your potential is limitless.” The “ZNA” edition represents the dual qualities that define Williamson’s game – powerful and graceful, out of this world but down to earth, strong and smooth. The Zion 1 “Noah” is dedicated to Zion’s relationship with his kid brother Noah, seen below holding his dedicated silhouette, as well as the Gen Zion. Finally, the “Marion” colorway tributes Williamson’s hometown in South Carolina, the place that shaped him into the athlete that he is today.

The four Jordan Zion 1 colorways will release throughout the spring, with the “Gen Zion” releasing first on April 23rd. The “ZNA” follows on May 5th, the “Noah” on May 19th, and the “Marion” on May 26th. Catch them at Jordan retailers and online at
