The Nike Air Zoom Generation First Game was LeBron James’ first signature shoe that he wore in his Cleveland debut.
This “First Game” edition of the Nike Air Zoom Generation comes dressed in a straight forward home colorway as a nod to the Cavs’ Wine and Gold jerseys. Built with Nike’s sphere liner, heel Max Air unit and forefoot Zoom Air, with a fully sleeved tongue. But the most notable feature to the shoe is the 11-5-2003 stitched into the collar.

“When I held these shoes for the first time I couldn’t believe I was holding a Nike sneaker with my name on it AND that they’d forever be known as the “LeBron’s.” Bronny was a baby. V was still in high school. Mom and I were barely out of the Springhill projects. We only dreamed of days like that and then they became reality. This shoe changed my life, my family’s life, and we’ve been lucky enough to change the lives of people around us. This shoe is for EVERY SINGLE person with a dream and a passion. No matter what your situation is. From the projects to the palace, this shoe is a symbol that you can do anything.” FIRE IS BAAAAAACK #AZG #StriveForGreatness #JustAKidFromAkron – @KingJames
