LeBron's latest Agimat sneaker set for Philippine release
Carrying the line ‘Mula Mandirigma Sa Mandirigma’ (‘From One Warrior to Another’), the LeBron Soldier 12 Agimat is LeBron’s gift to Filipino warriors on the basketball court.

The mystic powers of the Agimat has long been a part of Filipino fokelore and has captured our strong belief in the supernatural. LeBron James seems to have captured some of its greatness and it is now packed in the limited edition LeBron Soldier 12 Agimat. 

The 12th edition in the LeBron Soldier line features a simplified strap, lower collar, and circular knit upper that, according to Nike Senior Footwear designer Jason Petrie, is a “symbol of toughness”, just like the Filipino.

Carrying the line ‘Mula Mandirigma Sa Mandirigma’ (‘From One Warrior to Another’), the LeBron Soldier 12 Agimat is LeBron’s gift to Filipino warriors on the basketball court.

Compared to last year’s release, this year’s highly-anticipated inspiration is enriched with unique symbolisms that stand out aesthetically.

Both MNL and the number 330 stand for Manila and LeBron’s hometown of Akron, Ohio, respectively. A blazing flame represents the country’s numerous volcanoes and LeBron’s intense passion for the game.

Four stars remind everyone of The King’s 4 MVP awards. Finally, a steep mountain is a subtle nod to Philippine terrain and James’ relentless drive to be the best to ever play.

The Nike Lebron Soldier 12 Agimat will be available worldwide as well as key Southeast Asian cities in the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia starting June 15. Pairs will be available in the Philippines at select Nike Park and Titan branches. Each pair will sell for PHP 6,745.
