LeBron James has only been a member of the Los Angeles Lakers for a season and change, but he’s supported LA’s Fairfax High School with PE makeups of his signature Nike footwear since 2007 — and now his famed LeBron 7 “Fairfax” PE is set for a full retail release. Although the Fairfax area is mostly known as a hub for street culture thanks to retail outposts like Supreme, The Hundreds and Flight Club, its high school has produced notable alumni from Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers to actress Mila Kunis and NBA players Solomon Hill and Craig Smith.

Drawing from the school’s away uniforms, the uppers boast a black synthetic base that’s equipped with bold gold Flywire and a red lateral swoosh rimmed with yellow trim. Further punches of red and yellow appear on the laces and tongue, with glistening silver hardware and a black patent leather mudguard providing elegant contrast.

Most directly, the school is acknowledged by a “Fairfax” text stamp on the medial heel. Yellow medial midfoot Swooshes, jeweled heel badges and a cursive “LJ” graphic debossed into the midsole round off the top half. Down below, a vivid red full-foot Air Max unit provides cushioning, and a black herringbone outsole with red and yellow accents finalizes the style.

The Nike LeBron 7 “Fairfax” is set to release on Nike SNKRS and at retailers like Foot Locker come March 6, and retails for $200 USD.
