Nike is taking a look back at LeBron James’ first NBA season with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 with the classic Air Zoom Generation coming back soon.
Shown here is the “First Game” Nike Air Zoom Generation from 2003 that’s reportedly returning to retail next month according to House of Heat. While the style is dubbed “First Game,” James actually wore this pair in his fourth game in the league, but during his first home game with the Cavs. This colorway was last seen in 2017 for Nike’s first-ever LeBron retro run and released in limited numbers.
At the time of writing, this “First Game” Nike Air Zoom Generation retro is expected to return on March 21 at Nike.com for $180. Grab a detailed look at the forthcoming release below as we await the official updates from the brand.
