Although Nyjah Huston didn’t compete in the Tokyo Olympics due to the event’s postponement, the 26-year-old professional skater accomplished a feat only a select few have: receive his second signature sneaker with Nike SB. And for its latest colorway, the Nyjah Free 2 looks to the Los Angeles Lakers’ famous palette in collaboration with the NBA.

The Nike Zoom Spiridon-inspired upper boasts a predominantly off-white upper, with hits of “Court Purple” and “University Gold” across its accents. Profile swooshes indulge in the former tone, while embroidered “23” logos on the lateral heel, which nod to to LeBron James‘ jersey number, are outlined in the eye-catching latter. The California-native’s first name alternates between both hues via it’s appearance on the tongue pull tabs, whereas partially-exposed midsole tooling boasts the yellow-adjacent color; remaining midsole and outsole components deliver a semi-translucent blue arrangement differing from other Lakers-commemorating options from NIKE, Inc. in 2020.

Enjoy a first-look at the shoes here below, and expect pairs to hit Nike.com for $95 USD soon.
