Known for his penchant to hit huge shots in the postseason as well as his cool, calm, and collected leadership — a perfect yin to Kobe Bryant‘s ultra-intense yang — Derek Fisher is a true Laker legend, and now Lake Show fans will be able to take a welcome trip down memory lane thanks to this Lakers-themed take on Nike’s revived Air Max Uptempo. A replication of a PE that Fisher wore in 2002, these Nike shoes feature a crisp white leather upper that’s accented by a large yellow overlay. The slanted midfoot Swoosh boasts regal purple trim, and further purple detailing arrives on the heel/debossed midfoot Swoosh. As is customary for the Max Uptempo, an embroidered “Air” hit appears on the eyestays, and the look is completed by yellow Air Max cushioning units. Perfect for frustrated Lakers fans who want to relive the team’s early ’00s glory and Nike Basketball aficionados alike, these re-crafted PEs will release on Nike.com in the coming weeks for $150 USD.
