Nike continues to dive back into LeBron‘s vault as the two are slated to retro the coveted Zoom LeBron 3 “Houston Oilers” at the start of next month.

We first saw this pair way back in 2006 when then 21-year-old LeBron James became the youngest player in history to take home the All Star Game MVP, tallying 29 points, 6 rebounds and 1 W. LeBron didn’t actually wear them on the court, but rather they released in very limited numbers and mostly to “friends and family.”

The game, of course, was played in Houston, and being a big Warren Moon fan — LeBron met agent Rich Paul in 2002 after becoming impressed by Paul’s throwback Moon jersey — LeBron dipped his third signature sneaker in a blue, red and white color scheme. Everything here remains identical to the original release, right on down to the star stamp at each heel’s pull tab.

The Nike Zoom LeBron 3 “Houston Oilers” is a Quickstrike release, so it’ll only be available at select retailers, like Sneakersnstuff, in limited quantities on May 1 for $175 USD.

In other footwear news, the Friends-inspired Kyrie 5 is rumored to release next month.
