Championing his love for both football and his home state Buckeyes, LeBron James has long since held a special connection with Ohio State University; bestowing the basketball and football programs with an overwhelming number of Player Exclusive silhouettes rivaling the heat that’s consistently coming out of Eugene, Oregon. Ahead of the school’s Top Ten matchup against No. 7 Penn State, the Ohio State Football team showcased the cleats they’ll be taking Ohio Stadium in this Saturday morning – a cleated version of the iconic LeBron 4 “Graffiti”.
Recently returning to shelves for its first retro run since 2006, the low-top gridiron-ready effort expands upon the silhouette’s original Nike Foamposite upper cast in a bright white tint while the bootie-like collar, laces and profile swooshes at the heel are cast in a jet-black contrast. Much like its on-court counterpart, hits of “University Red” dominate the lugged metallic tread underfoot in tandem with the silhouette’s classic LBJ tongue tab branding. What’s more, the silhouette’s staple graffiti detailing renders an exclusive Ohio connection as “Buckeyes”, “Columbus”, and “West Lane Ave.” wording builds out the surrounding full-length mudguard and overlay.
Enjoy a detailed look at the Nike LeBron 4 “Graffiti” Ohio State PE Cleats below as we await the silhouette’s on-field debut this Saturday.
