UPDATE: It's taken years of constant requests from King James' people, but Nike have finally granted them a retro. The Air Zoom Generation returns to shelves for the first time since 2003 and – if you haven't already bid stacks for it – is available from select Nike stockists now.
LeBron James has announced that Nike is finally blessing us with a retro of his original Air Zoom line. And if that wasn’t sweet enough news, we’ve even got official images and a release date. The Air Zoom Generation Retro here looks true to the model which first stepped on court in 2003. Aggressively angular panels in red draw the eye to the front of the shoe, which is dipped in white and lined with navy, and the date that LeBron debuted the model – '11-5-2003' – is penned in gold on the inside of the collar.
The Nike Air Zoom Generation will be available from Nike retailers on January 25.
