Today we would like You to take a look back at the first of LeBron’s signature shoes: Nike Air Zoom Generation. As You may know these kicks are inspired by the Hummer H2. However, one of the released colorways has a more special story behind. One of the first thing that Nike did after signing LeBron James back in 2003 they asked him what dream he would like to accomplish someday [shoeswise]… LeBron said he would like to play NBA game in wheat Timberland boots. Of course Nike couldn’t let that dream hanging so they did their best and made the wheat and gold Nike Air Zoom Generation. King James wore those sneakers during 2004 Rookie Challenge and that’s why they got the “All-Star” nickname despite the fact that LeBron didn’t play in the actual 2004 NBA All-Star Game. Plus the shoes got released during the 2004 NBA All-Star Weekend. Check out the photos below [click to see them full size].
