Two Decades Later, the Nike Air Zoom Generation Returns
On November 20th, 2003, LeBron James made his first appearance for his hometown team, but not as brilliantly as he had hoped. The loss to the Denver Nuggets turned out to be a bitter disappointment. Much more successful, however, were the sneakers the basketball player wore during the game.
The Nike Air Zoom Generation, affectionately known as the "First Game", has not been forgotten and returns after 20 years to celebrate the anniversary.
The white toe box and midfoot overlay are expertly complemented by a red jacquard panel, while navy Swooshes add a touch of modern style. Added to that are gold stitching and a bright metallic finish on the eyelets, heel counter, and tongue tab.
The cushioned Nike Air Zoom unit in the sole completes the look, while the release date "11-05-03" inside the sneaker completes the homage. All in all, it’s a functional and visually appealing combination with carbon fibre design.
