Zion has already revealed in the past to be a huge fan of an anime called Naruto. It is the story of a young orphaned Ninja who decides to prove the world wrong and become the leader of his village. The ninja, Naruto, also has a close friend and rival named Sasuke.
Since Williamson has clearly watched all the Naruto episodes and even posted about in on social media, it is no surprise that his new Naruto x Jordan Zion 2 “Sasuke” carry the theme colors of the show he admires.

As we can tell from the shoe, it is quite unique with different colors. The Yellow represents Naruto’s abilities and the blue represents Sasuke’s. Those are also the same colors their characters’ special moves are animated in.
Although there aren’t too many anime fans in the NBA world, we are sure that players like Zion will bring about a change in times. Especially with this shoe. After all, it would attract both NBA fans and Anime fans alike. It also costs more or less the same as other sports shoes at $120. We certainly hope that fans give it a try.
