The Nike Air Flight Legacy is joining the likes of the Kobe 5 Proto and LeBron 17 Low in paying homage to one of the NBA‘s most successful teams, the Los Angeles Lakers.

Crafted with a crisp white leather upper, the franchise colors of “University Gold” and “Regency Purple” make their way on to the mesh eyelets, mudguard, collar lining, insole and ankle swoosh. Additional branding hits can be found on the heel and tongue embroidery as the silhouette rests on a white midsole and transparent window, finally tied together with white laces for a clean finish.

The Nike Air Flight Legacy is available now on Nike’s website for $90 USD.

In other footwear news, Nike Sportswear’s signature shoe box is now a bag.
