LeBron James Asks: Time For a Nike LeBron Retro?

lebron retro 1 LeBron James Asks: Time For a Nike LeBron Retro?

A few months back, Sneaker News posed the question if the world is ready for a Nike Air Zoom Generation retro or some other LeBron bringback.  After another strong season, James finds himself more favorably comparing to Jordan year for year, and given that the AJ1 came back after a decade, it’s relatively surprising in today’s abundantly varied sneaker market that we haven’t seen the AZG return yet.  LeBron himself suggests it’s possibly happening soon, though, in new Instagram images tagged “Retro time people? #ZoomGeneration #TenYearAnniversary”.  Check out LBJ in the ‘First Game’ colorway after the jump and register your opinion: is the upcoming 10th anniversary the perfect time for an Air Zoom Generation retro?

I'd say wait until he retires. Besides, I still get looks when I rock any of me 1-4s.

I'm with it as long as they don't ruin it with new ugly colorways. The Hyperflight is one of my favorite shoes and Nike fucked the retro up with all the crazy prints and shit.

Why not? I personally didn't have a pair and my first pair were a pair of low 2's.

And does anybody else notice the LeBron X Championship pack hat on eBay for $300?

As if anybody is going to pay for that.

@EVERYTHING_EPIC While I'm sure your double negative was intentional, you are exactly right, a lot of people do want these.  Other typos you had, "these*, they*, drop*.  Thanks.
