Manilla’s TITAN is a bastion of basketball culture in the Philippines, and now it’s linked up with Nike Basketball for a special take on LeBron James‘s LeBron 17 Low. The fourth collaboration between TITAN and Nike after “Agimat” LeBron 16 Lows in 2019, LeBron Soldier 12s in 2018 and LeBron 14s in 2017, the regal red and gold style breaks from its predecessors in color, nods to key moments from TITAN’s 10 years in business and salutes a deep love for the game shared by King James and the archipelagic country.

Made almost entirely of red, the uppers present an undeniably vivid look. A one-piece Battleknit base is overlaid with a synthetic mudguard, itself rife with debossed details that salute ten years of TITAN memories. Tongues continue the story with a special crest that places a globe atop LeBron’s recognizable crown logo, adds TITAN’s lightning bold graphic and equips 17 stars in honor of the King’s 17 NBA seasons. This special embellishment wraps up with a “Para Sa Kadakilaan” motif, which translates to “Strive For Greatness.”

Regal gold thread is used for the midfoot Swooshes and heel’s crown logos. Insoles feature Manilla’s geographic coordinates, and “MANILLA/WORLD” hits, a reminder of TITANS’s roots and its global intentions. Red midsoles combine Air Max and Zoom Air cushioning units, and are speckled with gold to round off the look.

“LeBron has always had a deep connection with Filipinos, as we all share his unique love for the game,” said Nikko Ramos, Titan’s Brand Connections Director. “This shoe’s design and storytelling is a true testament to the partnership.”

The TITAN x Nike LeBron 17 Low will release at TITAN’s retail locations and webstore on August 1, then hit Nike’s Park Fort location in the Philippines on August 8. The MSRP is set at $160 USD.
