An upcoming colorway of the LeBron Soldier 12 brings back the "Agimat" theme used on past models like the LeBron 14 to celebrate King James' fans in the Philippines. The "Agimat" nickname translates to the Filipino word for amulet or charm.

Like the LeBron 14, this pair is covered in an all-blue upper with gold accents used on the branding, embellishments on the tongue, and heel tab. A knit material makes up a majority of the upper and is accented by a leather overlay on the heel and suede on the toe. The Soldier 12's criss-cross strap closure system snakes its way up the shoe donning both a Swoosh and LeBron's "LJ" crown logo.

Additional details that act as a further homage to Filipino culture include an "MNL" hit to represent the capital city of Manila, a special pattern on the inner lining symbolizing the volcanoes and terrain of the country, and "Mula Mandirigma Sa Mandirigma" phrasing, which translates to "From One Warrior to Another."

A tentative release date for the "Agimat" Nike LeBron Soldier 12 is set for June 15 at $130.
