Nike is bringing back another classic basketball silhouette with the forthcoming re-release of LeBron James’ first signature shoe with the Swoosh. Releasing the LeBron Retro iteration for a second time, the Swoosh will reintroduce the “King’s First” version of the Air Zoom Generation this fall.
Nike’s Air Zoom Generation silhouette was the very first sneaker LeBron sported during his NBA Rookie season in 2003. Inspired by the Hummer H2 that LeBron received during his high school years, the silhouette was made to represent James’ physical dominance in the NBA during his first season. Dressed in a white leather upper with hits of black and varsity crimson on the heel and Nike check, the shoes come equipped with a brand new mesh system and innovative Nike technology.
While Nike has yet to confirm the release date of the Nike Air Zoom Generation King’s First iteration, the shoes will in fact be available very soon at the Nike Basketball website. Make sure to keep it locked with XXL for more details behind this next Retro release from The King and the Swoosh.
