Although the aforementioned “First Game” makeup holds the distinction of being the first style James wore during a Cleveland Cavaliers home game, the white, black and red look dropping Saturday was actually the style worn by the 13-time NBA All-Star wore in his very first professional game against the Sacramento Kings on Oct. 29, 2003.
It’s worth mentioning that there are a few small color and material differences between this 2017 iteration and its 2003 predecessor, but that shouldn’t be enough to dissuade fans from picking these up.
Since the sneaker’s 2003 debut, this original makeup of the Air Zoom Generation has been tucked away in the Nike archives — until now. The style returns in limited-edition fashion Saturday at select Nike Sportswear retailers for an expected retail price of $175.
