LeBron James has a lot of great signature sneakers, including the Nike LeBron 4. However, this probably isn't his most popular offering. For the most part, fans gravitate towards his offerings from the Miami Heat days. Overall, shoes like the Nike LeBron 8, 9, and 10 were extremely colorful. The Heat were a team that lent itself well to some unique color schemes. Everyone remembers those iconic "South Beach" and "Miami Nights" offerings that swept sneakerheads off of their feet. However, that is not to say that LeBron's earlier output didn't also have a massive impact.

Throughout the last few years, Nike Basketball has been trying to conjure up some LeBrons to retro. After all, James is someone who has a massive fanbase. Consequently, there are tons of ways to capitalize on his success. One way to do so is to bring out old LeBron shoes that people remember fondly. Sometimes, these old colorways are even transplanted onto newer silhouettes. In fact, this happened with the Nike LeBron 4 "Graffiti." Although now, the OG LeBron 4 version of this scheme is set to return for real.

According to Sole Retriever, 2023 will see the return of the Nike LeBron 4 "Graffiti." In the image above, you can see why this colorway is seen as iconic. Overall, it features a cool aesthetic while also keeping the colors fairly simple. Firstly, the shoe begins with a white shell on the top. Secondly, the midsole is black with some white graffiti throughout. Lastly, the cuff of the sneaker is black with some red and white material. This creates a shoe that matched nicely with LeBron's old Cavaliers jerseys.

The LeBron 4 is certainly not the most popular vintage LeBron silhouette. However, fans have been looking forward to seeing some of offerings back on the market. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have a release date for this model. However, you can stay tuned to HNHH for all of the latest news and updates from around the sneaker world.
