After securing LeBron James for $90M, Nike wouldn’t settle for anything short of iconic for the High Schooler’s first signature silhouette. So, they gave the nod to famed designer Tinker Hatfield for some guidance, and what resulted was the Nike Air Zoom Generation – a sneaker that slyly referenced LeBron’s H2 Hummer controversy and was lightweight to support the speed of a young LeBron. With all great sneakers comes a preliminary phase of some sort, and this all black wear-test initially previewed in our Classics Revisited returns for another look. The sneaker is relevant for the obvious displaced Swoosh on the heel, but also due to how the ballistic nylon is pair with a butter suede throughout. While we never saw the ominous black and chrome colorway in a retail release of the first LeBrons either, you can see more images after the click and grab this rare find today via sneakerarena on eBay.

nike kd vs lebron Comparing the Nike KD and LeBron Through The First Six Models

LeBron James and Kevin Durant and unquestionably 1a and 1b on Nike’s order of importance, but they took different routes to climb to their respective points of success. While LeBron James was a major focus on the marketing side of things, the Nike KD took a rather inconspicuous route with a bargain price-point and relatively quiet marketing push. Still, their resumes up to that point were eerily similar, and now that Durant and LeBron are ready to battle it for the true #1 spot of Nike signature shoes, let’s take a look back at the first six of Nike KD and LeBron.

LeBron James’ Nike Air Zoom Generation “Team USA” PE for the 2004 Olympics

nike air zoom generation team usa 10 LeBron James Nike Air Zoom Generation Team USA PE for the 2004 Olympics

LeBron James’ entrance into the NBA made shockwaves on a global scale. He took the league by storm during the ’03-’04 NBA Season and was inserted into the roster for Team USA for the 2004 Olympics in Athens, which certainly struck fear in opposing teams (foreign, basketball-playing countries pay attention to the NBA as much as Americans do). Despite being one of the leading scorers on the seemingly stacked squad, LeBron James didn’t bring home the Gold; he and Team USA finished third and captured the Bronze, but anything short of the top prize was considered a failure. Regardless, that 2004 Olympics was one to remember on a sneaker standpoint, as LeBron wore the Nike Air Zoom Generation in a Team USA PE before switching over to the Nike Zoom LeBron II. It’s not often we get to see these gems, so check out the photos below and peep the full listing from sole-empire on eBay.

That group features the greatest of retail releases for LeBron’s line pulled from the past ten plus years, from the Nike Zoom Generation that brought him into the league all the way up to this year’s LeBron 11. But, with the LeBron line, the unreleased samples, player exclusives, and the like, are almost as big a part of the equation.

We know that Saint Patrick’s Day is in the past at this point, but we’re going to sneak in a little bit of Irish love just after the deadline. On display here is a Nike Zoom Generation pair that proves just how long SVSM has been getting outfitted with special LeBron sneakers. As you can see, the sneakers have been kept in deadstock condition for all these years and they’ve even still got the “peel off” plastic attached to the back end. If the Nike Air Zoom Generation were to retro, is this a colorway you’d like a crack at? Let us know in the comments after you check the additional photos for this white/green/gold LeBron sneaker.
