Nike kicked off what figures to be a long line of LeBron retro sneakers earlier this year when they released the "Wheat" Air Zoom Generation that LeBron wore during his first All-Star game. 

Now, it looks like Nike is preparing to release the black colorway of the Nike Air Zoom Generation.

According to Sole Collector, the black/white-red kicks are reportedly slated to release in October, though a concrete release date and images of the retro have yet to surface.

LeBron will be taking the court next year in his 15th Nike signature sneaker, so the brand has plenty to work with if they want to begin the process of releasing his classic kicks. As of now, it looks like they're starting with the one that started it all and will then work their way up. 

Take a look at the original Air Zoom Generation in the gallery above and stay tuned for images of the 2017 retro.
