Nike LeBron Soldier 12 ‘Agimat’ to make debut in Philippines


The Cleveland Cavalier superstar LeBron James is set to unveil the Nike LeBron Soldier 12 “Agimat” that will be made available on June 15 worldwide.

A pair of the latest shoe sells for P6,745. The Lebron Soldier 12 has a simplified strap, lower collar, and a circular knit upper that is a “symbol of toughness,” and will be available at Nike Park and Titan Branches.

Compared to last year’s release of the LeBron 14 “Agimat” this year’s version also carries the line “Mula Mandirigma Sa Mandirigma” (From One Warrior to Another), making it James’ gift to Filipino warriors on the court.

The acronym “MNL” and the number 330 stand for Manila and LeBron’s hometown of Akron, Ohio.

While the blazing flame represents the country’s many volcanoes and LeBron’s intense passion. Four stars remind everyone of James’ four MVP awards. Finally, a steep mountain is a subtle nod to the terrain of the Philippines and James’ relentless drive to be the best to ever play.
