The 100 Best Sneakers of the Complex Decade

95. Nike Zoom LeBron II

Year: 2004

The Zoom Generations were LeBron's first Nike signature shoes, but the IIs were the first to feature his name on the box. With a lot of pressure on Team Swoosh to step it up for King James’ sophomore run, they came out with a triple-double for the most-anticipated basketball shoe of 2005. The stacked full-length Zoom Air units were a huge success comfort wise and the lasered details on the ballistic mesh-reinforced upper looked sick. The sneaker was also the introduction to Bron’s now-signature lion logo. The birthday LeBron IIs > Birthday Cake Oreos — and that’s a bold statement.
