Nike Air Zoom Generation "Wheat" (2004)

Back when King James was soaring as the premier rookie on everyone’s radar, he debuted the all-wheat-everything Air Zoom Generation in the 2004 Rookie Challenge. They were hot then and are still blazing today, especially with the gold piping across the front portion of the shoe. These almost make you want to walk around with a boot brush in your back pocket. Almost.
