2018 is the year of Saint Vincent Saint Mary… LeBron James’ alma mater. Not only we’ve got the SVSM Soldier 12s as a General Release, but also the upcoming Retro version of the Air Zoom Generation.
In the case of the AZG it’s more special because the OG version was never released to public and remained as a Player Exclusive item very popular among Nike LeBron collectors. Sadly I expect Nike to attach the Quickstrike tag to the SVSM AZG’s.
Below there’s a comparison between the OG and the Retro. Apart from the obvious difference… the peel off foil… the Retros seem to have a slightly different shade of Green. Not a big difference, but I’m sure owners of the OG’s will be pleased about not having a 1:1 copy releasing to public. I know I would If I owned a pair.
The Nike Air Zoom Generation Retro “SVSM” is scheduled to drop on May 26th, but that may still change per the QS nature of the drop. If previous retro AZGs are any indication here, expect a retail price of $175-200.
