More about the alleged removal of Nike Ja 1s from Nike and Finish Lines apps
According to the outlet, Hunger J1S is reportedly expected to be released on Thursday, May 25. The sneakers were reportedly listed on both Nike and Finish Line’s mobile apps on Tuesday. However, as of Thursday, they appear to be removed.
Additionally, after searching both retailers’ websites, it appears that Morant’s signature sneaker release, the Ja 1s, is also unavailable. Most of Ja Morant’s product line on both sites is Ja Morant logo basketball shirts.
However, the Commercial Appeal reports that SNKRS and the Hibbett Sports app are still offering a lottery for Hunger Ja 1s. Then the winners selected in the raffle will have the right to buy the sneakers.
According to TMZ, resellers like StockX and Flight Club still have the 23-year-old basketball player’s products for sale in addition to retailer Dick’s Sporting Goods.
As reported by Fox Business, Nike has yet to respond to a request for comment.

The NBA team’s decision was shared after a video went viral late last week, in which Morant waved the gun a second time on Instagram Live.
Morant’s alleged actions came to light recently after returning to the NBA from an eight-game suspension. It was brought on by a gun-brandishing 23-year-old at a Colorado club on March 4.
At the time, Morant declared that his actions were a “bad mistake” and that he would avoid “bad decisions” going forward, as reported by The Shade Room.
