Once a PE, the Nike Air Zoom Generation “Purple Suede” will be released for the very first time this Summer 2023. 

Viewed as one of the most coveted colorways of the Zoom Air Generation, this offering debuted back in 2018 as LeBron wore the pair prior to Game 3 in the 2018 Finals and also to the NBA Summer League. While we hoped for a release back then, of course, it never came but in 2023 that all looks to change with the offering being slated for a summer 2023 release. Now an early look of the ’23 offering has yet to surface, we expect the offering to feature the same dark purple suede upper which features tonal branding and accents as a purple midsole and shimmery translucent rubber outsole are placed underneath to complete the design.


The Nike Air Zoom Generation will be released this summer via select Nike retailers and A retail price has yet to be revealed as Nike has yet to officially announce the offering. Enjoy the 2018 PE below thanks to an on-foot look by LeBron himself and be sure to follow JustFreshKicks for updates on this release and of course more of the latest daily sneaker news from your favorite brands.
