Wrapping up its successful first year on the market, Nyjah Huston and
Uppers use a crisp white tone as the base, nodding to the Los Angeles Lakers‘ alternate jerseys and built of a mesh and rubber mixture for lightweight durability. Midfoot Swooshes are done up in purple, with tongue and heel tabs alternating between purple and yellow embellishments. Lateral heels serve up the shoe’s signature detail, presenting LeBron’s #23 in purple and gold. Down below, yellow EVA midsoles are encased in a translucent rubber shell to complete the look.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time a LA-based skater has used his Nike shoes to pay homage to a Laker legend — in 2011, Eric Koston‘s SB Zoom Koston 1 released in two Kobe Bryant-inspired makeups: one that was a general release, the other limited to 24 pairs and only available at Staples Center.
