New PH-inspired LeBron shoe hits stores shortly after NBA restart
MANILA, Philippines—Another Philippine-inspired shoe for four-time MVP LeBron James will be on its way just days after the NBA restart.
After surfacing in May, the LeBron 17 low “Titan” got its release date with the shoe available to the market on August 1, just two days after the resumption of the suspended 2019-20 NBA season.
Although previous LeBron shoes that had Philippine inspirations were called “Agimat,” the new joints will be called “Titan” in honor of the local sneaker retailer that worked with Nike to create the colorway.
The new colorway sports a bright red upper, with gold accents on the Swoosh and the LeBron logo on the heel and tongue.
The phrase “Para sa Kadakilaan” or “Strive for Greatness” in English also features on the tongue as a background for the LeBron logo.
Previous Philippine-inspired sneakers under the LeBron line include the LeBron 14, LeBron Soldier 12, and LeBron 16 low.
