LeBron James once picked the Nike LeBron 4 as his most underrated signature sneaker. Released in 2006, the LeBron 4 marked the introduction of the Foamposite line, a throwback to the famous sneaker worn by one of LeBron’s childhood heroes, Penny Hardaway. Perhaps the most popular colorway of the LeBron 4 was a nod to his favorite breakfast cereal, Fruity Pebbles. Unfortunately, these pairs were limited to LeBron himself, as well as some friends and family. Over the years, the “Fruity Pebbles” theme has extended to other Nike LeBron sneakers, most recently the recently unveiled LeBron 19 Low. However, the long wait for the original may soon be over.
According to Sneaker Files, “Fruity Pebbles” Nike Zoom LeBron 4 would make its retail debut in December. As the name suggests, the pearl white-based shoe features a multi-colored grain pattern along the inner lining and midsole. Silver hardware, purple laces and a multicolored outsole for a classic look.
As of now, there is no confirmed release date for the LeBron 4 “Fruity Pebbles”. Expect updates, including a first look at retro, in the coming months.
