The Nike Air Max Uptempo ‘95 “Lakers” is a replica of the player exclusive performance basketball design worn by former Lakers point guard Derek Fisher during the 2002 NBA season. The smooth shooting lefty was an invaluable member of the Lakers early 2000s dynasty as his calm leadership and knack for delivering in the clutch propelled the Lake Show to three NBA Championships during the early aughts. The “Lakers” colorway of the Air Max Uptempo features a white leather upper with bright yellow accenting on the mudguard and on the purple-outlined Swoosh hit on the mid-panel. Additional Swoosh branding appears in purple on the lateral panel. Customary white embroidered AIR is spelled out on the eyelets while purple Uptempo branding covers the heel. Wrapping up the look is a white rubber sole with a unique yellow oval traction pattern and a visible Air window in the heel. The Nike Air Max Uptempo ‘95 “Lakers” was released in summer 2019.
