What LeBron Would’ve Worn in His Playoff Debut

As a 19-year old rookie, LeBron James led his home state Cavs in scoring, starts and minutes, putting up a famous stat line of 20-5-5 in his debut campaign.

While all that impressed and was enough for Rookie of the Year honors, it was not enough for Cleveland to make the postseason. Today we see what he would’ve worn had they done so.

The Nike Air Zoom Generation Playoff PE sticks to the script of black-based postseason pairs, popping with crimson Swoosh outlining and copper highlights on the logo, eyelets and sole detailing. Mesh takes a holiday on the upper with smooth black leather and textured paneling filling in the blanks.

This unreleased Nike Air Zoom Generation “Playoff” sample has surfaced for sale in a size 11 at INDEX.
