Maybe having a strong set of folkloric beliefs is to be blamed for the country's lagging modernization. On the other hand, the famous Cleveland Cavalier is known for his proverbial chalk toss and social media blackout come playoff time—rituals the superstar athlete adheres to for personal reasons.
The reason we're bringing this up is because the King recently paid homage to the power of mystical connections, through a fresh colorway of his latest signature shoe, the LeBron 14, which Nike aptly named the 'Agimat.'
Carrying the same innovative specs as the earlier 'Chase Down' version, the tribute sneaker also features significant elements, such as the code "MNL" (for Manila) and tagline "Para sa kadakilaan," that Pinoys will be proud of.
The Nike LeBron 14 Agimat is said to be the three-time champion's way of recognizing the unwavering love for the game of his fans in these parts, which he experienced firsthand during his previous visits to the country.
LeBron has actually already laced up these babies on the road, in Games 3 and 4 of the Cavs-Toronto Raptors series. During this time, his per-game averages of 35 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists led Cleveland in their second-round postseason sweep. It was a pretty effortless performance for the basketball royal.
Now, if that ain't supernatural, then we don't know what is.
The exclusive pair, retailing at P8,895, will have its Philippine release on May 20, ahead of its worldwide launch. Available only at TITAN FORT, TITAN22.COM, Nike Park Fort BGC and Nike Park Glorietta 4
