Another LeBron James PE is releasing soon with the upcoming Nike Air Zoom Generation “Court Purple” colorway rumored to arrive this summer.
The King wore the “Court Purple” Nike AZG during Summer League 2018 months ahead of his debut in the purple & gold threads. Commemorating his new chapter as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Nike Air Zoom Generation “Court Purple” was made for The King with its luxurious all-suede upper in a monochromatic purple hue.
Although the pair was designed to be a Player Exclusive (PE), Nike gave fans the chance for the Nike AZG “Court Purple” to go into production as a part of the SNKRS “Vote Back”campaign, which highlighted some legendary LeBron James PEs including the Nike LeBron 2 “Beast” (which is releasing this fall) and the Nike LeBron 10 “Ring Ceremony” colorway, which was crowned the winner by fans….
The Air Jordan 11 “DMP” is rumored to be the Air Jordan 11 for Holiday 2023.

The brand’s first-ever two-shoe drop created a commotion like no other. Retailing at $295, the Air Jordan “DMP” tandem was a collector’s dream with its special packaging, golden dog tags, and limited availability. In addition to its obvious lure, the black & gold color scheme of the Air Jordan 6/11 “DMP” delivered a sense of luxury that further justified the nearly-$300 release.
The Air Jordan 6/11 “DMP” didn’t only define Jordan’s greatness but defined a new chapter in sneaker culture. Camping out would become commonpractice. Reselling for 2-3x over retail price would become reoccurring. Backdooring would become a basis…..
