The sneaker boasts a dominant nubuck upper in a regal purple shade, paying homage to the LA Lakers’ iconic colors.

The heel features an iridescent finish, radiating a deep purple hue and infusing a futuristic touch. The Nike LeBron 21, set to debut in the 2023-24 NBA season, is expected to hold more surprises in store.

The LeBron 21 “Violet Dust” edition is anticipated to hit the shelves on October 14, available through Nike’s official channels and select retailers, priced at $200 USD.
