As you've heard by now, LeBron James' first signature sneaker, the Nike Air Zoom Generation, is making its long-awaited return to retail soon. The first images surfaced online earlier today, but word now comes from the man himself.

In an Instagram post tonight, James shared an image of the "First Game" Air Zoom Generation Retro, along with a caption recalling what it was like when he got his hands on the shoe for the first time as a rookie.

The Air Zoom Generation is rumored to be releasing later this month. Hit the follow button above and stick with Sole Collector for updates.
