Nike is gearing up to release a black colorway of the Air Zoom Generation in October, according to a report from Sole Collector that cites a retailer as a source.

The Swoosh kicked off LeBron James’ retro line in January, when they released the “First Game” ‘way with little notice. A very giddy ‘Bron announced the silhouette’s return in a video published to the Uninterrupted Twitter account. It was one of four sneakers that LeBron had release during the 2016-17 season, along with the LeBron 14, Zoom Soldier 11 and the LeBron 14 Low.

Images of the upcoming black AZG haven’t been leaked yet but the young King did play in a black-based pair during his rookie season.

The AZG was built to embody James’ soldier-like mentality. Its mid-cut and its mix of leather and mesh was created to help LeBron physically punish anyone who stood in front of him. He averaged 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists as a rookie, joining only Oscar Robertson (and later Tyreke Evans) as the only first-year players to do so.

Scroll through the gallery above to see that black pair in action and keep it locked for more info on the release as it becomes available.
