As conversation regarding LeBron James‘ future with the Los Angeles Lakers continues to develop, “the kid from Akron” is looking to the past, as his Nike LeBron 4 “Fruity Pebbles” from 2006 is rumored to release for the first time come the holiday season.
Originally one of the many Player-Exclusives (PE) of James’ earliest days in the NBA, the pair laid the groundwork for other playful themes that’ve emerged across the forward’s signature sneaker line, with the LeBron 19 Low recently donning a makeover also inspired by the Fruity Pebbles cereal. Constructed from a “White”-colored Foamposite shell, the shoes’ uppers are overshadowed by the curved midsole component, which features a series of patterns reminiscent of James’ favorite cereal. The inner lining follows suit, while the segmented tread underfoot also indulges in the colors of the rainbow. One major difference that may appear on 2022’s retro is official Fruity Pebbles branding given that it landed on the newer LeBron 19 Low.
No firm Nike SNKRS launch date has been disclosed by the brand, but that’s to change as the end of the year inches closer. In the meantime. enjoy images of a pair from 2006 ahead, courtesy of Sneaker Files.
