Upper layers of this forthcoming installment alternate between canvas and smooth leather materials. The former — which constructs the toe boxes and underlays — is sprayed with a stark black, while the latter is shown off on the overlays that are dyed in a muted purple. The most alluring element of these kicks is the Nike branding that has been embroidered onto the lower parts of the heel as they are presented with Lakers-inspired font with yellow outlines. This needlework design cue possibly correlates with the model’s moniker as EMB may be short for “embossed”. More LA-esque yellows pop out through the leather Swooshes as well as on the snapback hat-inspired tongue tags. Rounding off everything below is a clean white midsole and all-black outsoles.
