The wait is over for LeBron James fans as the “Wheat” colorway of the Nike Air Zoom Generation will make a return this month. Sparked by James’ confidence that he can play in anything, even a work boot, this special edition makes a comeback after turning heads during 2004’s NBA All-Star Rookie Challenge. This edition of LeBron’s first signature model mixes wheat and gold as an homage to the traditional coloring found on work boots while metallic detailing can be found on its heel for the finishing touch.

Retailing for $225 USD, the Nike Air Zoom Generation “Wheat” is slated to launch on February 17 as a part of Nike’s “Makers of the Game” releases.
