#KicksStalker: LeBron James’ sneaker gets ‘Agimat’ treatment anew
For the third straight year, a signature sneaker by LeBron James will release a Philippine-inspired colorway.
This time, Nike linked up with Titan, one of the premier sports retailer in the country, for their first footwear team-up to produce the LeBron 16 low ‘Agimat,’ which pays homage to the great Filipino warriors.
“Titan’s love of the game has helped established them as an authentic and vital lifeline of Manila’s basketball scene. We are confident that the Agimat aptly inspires athletes to raise their game on and off the court; to the next level and beyond,” said Nike Philippines country marketing manager Jino Ferrer in a press release.
Last year, it was the LeBron Soldier 12 that got the ‘Agimat’ treatment.
The Filipino folklore-inspired theme was first introduced in the LeBron 14 and was debuted on court by Gilas Pilipinas two years ago.
