During his tenure down in Orlando for the NBA‘s bubble postseason in 2020, LeBron James busted out an array of new Nike kicks on the hardwood. Among them was this Dodgers-inspired makeup of the LeBron 7 that the Swoosh has officially dubbed the “Baseball Blue” colorway.

For this court-ready installment, Beaverton’s design teams bring a handful of Los Angeles-inspired elements to life. LA Dodgers‘ team colors are the most prominent here as the white leather overlays and Flywire-constructed side walls are lent a clean white hue, while the mudguards and midsoles are covered in royal blue. Red accents, which are sprinkled across the LeBron branding throughout the shoe as well as the the tongue/heel embroidery have dual meaning here as they align with the Dodgers‘ uniform trim as well as the stitches found on an actual baseball. If you take a gander at the mudguards, one can also point out the tonal, all-over tree patterns which is likely emblematic of the year-round sunny weather down in Southern California.

Due to the fact that both the LA Lakers and the LA Dodgers won championships in 2020, this release and homage makes total sense.

If interested in copping, you can purchase the pair via Nike Japan on February 22 for ¥24,200 (approx. $229 USD). A stateside launch will likely follow after.

If interested in more footwear news, first images of the 2021 Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” have appeared.
