Before storming home court prior to Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals, LeBron James was spotted entering Quicken Loans Arena sporting a special tonal rendition of the Nike Air Zoom Generation — his very first signature sneaker. First hitting the scene back in 2004 during NBA All-Star Weekend, the signature shoe has already surfaced a couple of times this year alone in the “SVSM” PE and the recent “Wheat” release.

This new Player Exclusive sees the entire upper drenched in lively purple, sitting atop a dark grey sole unit. Unfortunately, the kicks brought no good fortune to the King, nor his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates, falling prey to yet another monster scoring night from Kevin Durant and his Golden State Warriors squad. Although unlikely this new variation sees a general release, be sure to check back for updates.

In case you missed it earlier, adidas Originals, N.E.R.D. & Creme introduce the PW Hu NMD “Homecoming.”
