Nike Air Zoom Generation (LeBron 1)

Released: 2003

Complex says: After “The Chosen One” was drafted No. 1 by Cleveland in 2003, he signed a lucrative $90 million deal with Nike. Of course the Swoosh pulled out the greatest to consult on the design of The King’s first shoe, although Nike Basketball designers Aaron Cooper and Eric Avar did the heavy lifting. The Air Zoom Generation featured Zoom Air throughout allowing the kid to sail through his first season in comfort and the design was inspired in part by LeBron's infamous Hummer.
