$90 million is what it cost for Nike to reel in LeBron James, so before the Air Zoom Generation debuted in late 2003, LeBron wore a diverse collection of sneakers during his first NBA pre-season prior to his regular season debut in Sacramento. The Air Jordan III, Air Jordan IX, Nike Ultramatic, and the Zoom Flight 2K3 are just some of what LeBron rotated during that short period, and it’s quite possible that the Air Raid was part of that group as well. Once the Nike LeBron line debuted with the AZG, there was no looking back to other models, but this PE, which features a similar White/Wine/Gold colorway with the L23 logo stamped on the insoles, would’ve been the perfect shoe for LeBron’s physical style of play – the Raid was in fact meant to be an outdoor streetball sneaker. Check out the this rare Air Raid after the jump and if you want a piece of LeBron history, visit the listing from envyusek on eBay.

I owned a pair of all black Air Raids. Worst shoe ever. Where the strap meets the shoe had no give and dug into my foot everytime. they never stretched out or loosened up. brutal.these might be nice to sit on a shelf but not on my feet

These are awesome, bring back a classic streetball, blacktop basketball shoe! Something the new breed of heads don't know about. Truly a great shoe. Bad c/w tho but perfect for Lebron, since he is into heavy shoes!

I remember that carbon sole - if you jammed it in your bike tyre going down a hill it would smoke up!

im sure you have not put on a pair of 9's, they are only 12 ounces. that is 1 Ounce less than 2011 hyperdunks! and weigh alot less than the low qaulity Jordans out these days. Buy a pair of LeBRON's. FYI Lebron X Nike have made some of the best new designs the sneaker game has had since OG Jordan X Nike Designs.
