Earlier today, basketball concept store Titan_22 officially announced the upcoming release of its second collaboration with Nike and NBA superstar Lebron James.
Describing this latest model up as a “product of shared passions and values,” the Nike Lebron XVII low Titan is “a representation of a country’s hoop dreams and an icon’s ascent from a small town to the world’s biggest stage”—as elaborated in the IG post of the startlingly red kicks.
This is the second collab between the store, the global sports brand, and “the king,” after the Titan Nike Lebron 16 low “Agimat” that was introduced last August. That 2019 navy blue model is a lot more subdued than this new release, which is filled with symbols and graphic elements.
A globe is mounted on the crown of the shoe’s tongue, surrounded by 17 stars, representing all of James’ 17 NBA seasons. Around the globe are the words “para sa kadakilaan,” our own translation of the player’s “strive for greatness” mantra. A lightning bolt, an element from Titan’s own logo, cuts through the graphic.
There are logos and symbols on the shoe’s upper, representing Titan’s first 10 years. The coordinates of our country’s capital appear at the base, and the words “Manila” and “world” are inscribed on the shoes’ opposing pairs.
The retail price of the sneakers, according to Titan, is P8,095.
The Nike Lebron 17 Titan drops on August 1, 2020 on Titan22.com and its app, seven days ahead of the global release.
