The Reebok The Blast Remembers Nick Van Exel’s Lakers Era

The Reebok The Blast Remembers Nick Van Exel’s Lakers Era

Laker fans should thank, not criticize, Dillon Brooks for awakening the Playoffs beast known as LeBron James. Now up 3-1 in the First Round series thanks to some late-game and OT heroics of LeBron James, Los Angeles is gaining some heavy momentum as the series returns to Memphis for a possible series-ending Game 5.

If you’re a fan of the gold and purple, Reebok just dropped their iconic The Blast silhouette in an appropriate colorway. It features a primary white leather base, while the Lakers yellow and purple combine for a base layer. Purple Hexalite cushioning appears through the visible window, while the miniature vector logo appears in matching colors.

However, this timely arrival could be seen as a tribute to Nick Van Exel, a former brand athlete that regularly wore The Blast in the mid-late 1990s.

This latest colorway of the Reebok The Blast is now available at select retailers and should be up on Reebok’s official site soon for $150.
