Inspired by the LA Lakers’ official team colors.
Nike is certainly no stranger when it comes to releasing sneakers inspired by the LA Lakers, and for the Holiday season, the Beaverton-based brand will be providing the Air Force 1 a "Lakers Alternate" edition. Giving the traditional palette a subtle yet striking twist, here’s what you need to know!
While other Lakers-like colorways work mostly on a white base with purple and gold hits throughout, these Forces completely invert this. Bearing more of a resemblance to the LA team’s “Statement” kit, the pebbled leather upper is painted in a bold cave purple hue, while luxe gold solar flare hues adorn the Swoosh branding on the side panels and tongue. Underfoot, the Air midsole has been left in an all-white tone, and this is then complemented by a purple rubber outsole, finalizing the design.
Launching this Holiday 2022 in gradeschool sizing for $90, the Nike Air Force 1 Low Lakers Alternate GS will be available at Nike, the SNKRS app, and select stockists both online and in-store. More alternate basketball team-inspired colorways are set to come through soon, so make sure you follow Sole Retriever over on Twitter and download our Mobile app and we’ll tell you all about them!
