In recent years, LeBron James' connection with the Filipino fanbase has been marked with special "Agimat" sneaker releases in collaboration with Manila's Titan. First, there was the LeBron Soldier 12 in 2018, then last year's LeBron 16 Low—both pairs navy-based. Thanks to James' right-hand man Frankie Walker, we now have our first look at this year's shoe.
The "Agimat" Nike LeBron 17 Low switches things up with an all-red upper, which features a complete embossing with symbols and logos tied to the Philippines, such as the returning shield and bolt. The shield is symbolic of the Bagobo tribe's traditional armor, while the lightning bolt represents power. Contrasting hits of metallic gold appear on tongue and lateral branding.
As of now, a release date hasn't been announced for the "Agimat" LeBron 17 Low. We'll keep you updated here at Sole Collector.
