Nike X Titan To Launch The LeBron 16 Low “Agimat”

I’m a big Lebron fan. I hoop in his shoes and when I first got into sneakers I kind of O.D.’ed on the Soldier 10-12 and then went coo-coo bananas on the Lebron 16.

I’m over it and into more casual sneakers since I literally only hoop once a week now…

But this shoe right here is kinda dope. It’s a take on the Lebron 16 ‘Watch The Throne’ in the low silhouette.

Aesthetically I feel this can be worn more casually and design wise takes the Lebron 16 silhouette to a more refined place.

Titan is a Philippines based retailer who specializes in sport and street wear. Filipinos love hooping (Shoutout to Manny Pacquiao) and Titan has been on the forefront of making the sport/culture of basketball accessible to the nation.

This LeBron 16 Low x Titan ‘Agimat’ is inspired by Filipino folklore, where the greatest of warriors are tasked not only to excel in battle, but also to lead past the field of combat and to the pinnacle of their kingdom.  The shoe pays homage to LeBron James’ journey from Warrior to King.

“We are proud and excited that our partnership with Nike is on the Agimat, with its iconic relevance to the people of the Philippines. Since it first launched in 2017, the Agimat has rooted itself not just in basketball performance but also the culture around the game. We are proud to continue deepening that connection through design and storytelling true to Titan’s heritage, culture and spirit.”

-Levon Rondina, Chief Brand Officer of Titan.

This is Titan’s first Nike collaboration and hopefully not its last. The shoe drops 8/31 via Nike SNKRS and select retailers.

Will I cop?

YES! For the Culture. 🥰
