A throwback to the Minneapolis era of the Lakers' franchise and a continuation of a colorway established in Kobe Bryant's signature line, the "MPLS" scheme is now making its way to LeBron James' Nike LeBron 16.
The shoe is delivered in grey Battleknit, with the familiar Lakers palette of purple and gold replaced by the pre-LA package of University Blue and yellow. Markings such as the MPLS-style 'LJ16' on the tongue, '23' numbering on the insoles and star print along the pull-tabs officially link the shoes to the old school unis.
