The Nike LeBron 17 will get nostalgic this upcoming Summer season as the new signature show will be releasing in a “Graffiti” colorway.
If you’re thinking the shoe looks familiar, that’s probably because it does. This new LeBron 17 takes inspiration from the Nike LeBron 4 that released way back 14 years ago in 2006 that hosted the “Graffiti” theme before. Now LeBron is back with the same street art vibes for an iteration you won’t want to miss.
The knitted upper arrives in a snowy-white color scheme while black and red detailing shine throughout. Black leather ankle add contrast and stability while Red shines on the outlining of the Nike Swoosh, sockliner and mini Swoosh on the forefoot. The Graffiti theme then comes into play in the midsole as white lettering uses the black midsole and mudguard as a canvas. A red outsole then finishes off the great design.
