News of this release was first published on May 17, 2022.

Update September 9, 2022: The Nike Dunk High ‘Lakers’ will release on September 23, directly from Nike.

We’ve seen dozens of two-tone Dunks roll out since Nike reintroduced the model in 2020, so it’s more than a bit surprising that none of ‘em have, until now, featured the famous yellow and purple tones of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers. However, Lake Show fans can now wash off some of the salt remaining from their team missing the playoffs and enjoy a just-revealed Dunk High that’s unofficially been dubbed the ‘Lakers’.

By now, any Dunk observer knows the formula of these two-tone styles: mudguards, eyestays, Swooshes, heels and collar flaps present one tone while toeboxes, quarter panels and collars serve as a home for the other. It’s as routine and pristine as a twine-tickling three-pointer. Here, the first set of areas described is done up in ‘Court Purple’ while the second set presents a sporty yellow shade. There are also yellow nylon tongues, yellow laces and dual-coloured tongue tags, plus white midsoles and purple outsoles. College sports fans might argue that these Dunk Highs are, in fact, an LSU colourway, and they’d have a decent case as well!

An official release date for this new Dunk High has yet to be announced, but look for it and other forthcoming styles like the Dunk High ‘Knicks’ to hit shelves later this year for $110.
