Looking back to the pre-Los Angeles Lakers days when the team set up shop in Minneapolis, the hues that celebrate that era find placement on the Nike LeBron 16 “MPLS” edition.
A shoe we knew was coming when James signed his four-year deal with Los Angeles, in lieu of Lakers purple and gold, retro blue and yellow serve as secondary shades to a Wolf Grey Battleknit upper. In a further ode to the elder Lakers, MPLS enthused “LJ16” marks the tongue while “23” stands firm on the insole.
Look for the Nike LeBron 16 “MPLS” on April 19 at select Nike retailers.
