ICYMI: Here’s the rest of Titan’s recent Nike Basketball releases
Although we are on MECQ these days here in Manila, I think brands and retailers are inching closer back to a more suitable way of operating amidst the pandemic. Retailers such as Titan are slowly getting their inventories in and we’re expecting more in the coming weeks as we all continue to maneuver in the new normal.
After debuting their second collaboration with Nike Basketball and LeBron James last weekend, they’ve been releasing a boatload of other silhouettes this past week. Here’s a rundown of what’s available in-store, online and on-demand at Titan:
Nike LEBRON XVII ‘Command Force’
LeBron James and Nike Basketball took a brief break from #LeBronWatch this past season, seems like they decided to pursue the program but in a more limited capacity. Back in the ’90s, Nike introduced us to Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood as a launch pad for the Air Command Force. The shoe then gained mainstream popularity as Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) wore them in White Men Can’t Jump. The key elements of the Air Command Force are now reinterpreted to the LeBron XVII, complete with LeBron’s name done in the FORCE logo.
The Nike LEBRON XVII ‘Command Force’ is now available and retails for Php 9,895.
Nike LEBRON XVII ‘Uptempo’
Another addition to this year’s #LeBronWatch is the ‘Uptempo’. Back in ’97, Scottie Pippen wore the Air More Uptempo during that season and now we see a revamped XVII taking some elements of the sneaker to 2020. The Uptempo logo can be seen on the throat.
The Nike LEBRON XVII ‘Uptempo’ retails for Php 9,895.
Nike LEBRON XVII Low ‘White/Black-Metallic Gold’
With the release of the ‘Titan’ colorway this past weekend, why not add another pair to the mix? The LeBron XVII Lows come in so many great colorways and this is no exception. The Low comes in a very attractive White/Black & Metallic Gold color blocking and this sneaker works both on and off the court. A sheriff badge can be seen on the shoe’s insole for added detail.
The Nike LEBRON XVII Low ‘White/Black-Metallic Gold’ retails for Php 8,095.
Nike LEBRON XVII Low ‘Black/White’
While this XVII Low looks pretty basic compared to recent releases, the beauty is in its simplicity. The pebbled texture of the upper adds another dimension to the sneaker, while the crown logo on the heel features multiple colors, a nod to the Olympic rings (ideally in time for Tokyo 2020). A blue mini Swoosh sits right by the side to go with his signature on the tongue.
The Nike LEBRON XVII Low ‘Black/White’ retails for Php 8,095.
Nike KD 13 ‘Hype’
An homage to hip hop. It’s quite unfortunate that we’ve only seen KD rock the 13s during his rehab but at least other Nike athletes such as Jaren Jackson Jr. and Jamal Crawford are wearing his kicks at the bubble. The ‘Hype’ colorway takes inspiration for KD’s love for hip hop which he plays to hype himself up before each game. A gold chain is printed on the textile upper, to go with some butterflies as a nod to him gettind rid of his nervousness before each game. The gold Swoosh completes the look for this blinged-out KD13.
The Nike KD 13 ‘Hype’ retails for Php 7,645.
Nike KD 13 ‘Home Team’
It’s Brooklyn in the House! With KD moving addresses to the BK, it’s only fitting for Nike to come up with a colorway to fit his new digs. The colorway seems pretty straightforward as it meshes well with the Nets’ home whites. the pop comes care of the shoe’s outsoles, loosely inspired by their City Edition ‘Bed-Stuy’ unis.
The Nike KD13 ‘Home Team’ also retails for Php 7,645.
Nike KYRIE 6 ‘Midnight Navy’
Just like his teammate, Kyrie’s relying on his Nike brothers to rep his kicks on court. Ja Morant’s been wearing his at the Bubble and we’re getting a couple more colorways for the 6. Coming with a unique playing card-esque design on the lining and the throat, the ‘Midnight Navy’ colorway is a no-brainer.
The Nike KYRIE 6 ‘Midnight Navy’ retails for Php 6,745.
Nike KYRIE 6 ‘Shutter Shades’
Who rocked shutter shades back in the 2000s? Nike Basketball and Kyrie Irving take inspiration from that trend by adding a glow in the dark hamsa heel and the iridescent Swoosh. Additional pops of green and yellow are found on the tongue and the base of the lacing system.
The Nike KYRIE 6 ‘Shutter Shades’ go for Php 6,745.
Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 ‘Cotton Shot’
We’ve seen the colorway before across Russ’ signature pairs and this is the latest addition to the set. The ‘Cotton Shot’ continues to pay homage to Westbrook’s father, Russ Sr., as they would practice at the driveway with the soft floaters that they would call ‘cotton shots’. If you’re completing the set, add this one to the collection.
The Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 ‘Cotton Shot’ also retails for Php 6,745.
Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 ‘KB3’
No, it’s not inspired by Kobe Bean Bryant, but actually Westbrook’s best friend Khelcey Barrs III who passed away when he was 16. The tan-clad upper is highlighted by the volt strap and black hits throughout the shoe.
The Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 ‘KB3’ goes for Php 6,745.
Nike PG4 ‘Digi-Camo’
The PG4’s been a player favorite, especially with the versatility it brings with the various ways you can wear them. But more than that, the cushioning on these are great, especially for a highly accessible sneaker. The PG4 now comes in a digital camouflage upper using Racer Blue and Team Orange color combo paired with a Light Cream midsole. Could this be a colorway initially made for George had he stayed with the Thunder? Maybe.
The Nike PG4 ‘Digi-Camo’ is now available at Titan for Php 5,795.
Nike PG4 ‘Bred’
To round out the Nike Basketball releases is another PG4 colorway. The classic Black/Red-White combo works with so many basketball team colors that it’s a necessity for Nike to create one for the most affordable signature sneaker in the market. The Nike PG4 ‘Bred’ also retails for Php 5,795.
These Nike Basketball releases are all available at Titan22.com and the TITAN app. Select stores should have these pairs but best to make a reservation for your store visit during these times. You can also try to use TITAN On-Demand so that you don’t have to trouble yourself from going to the stores.
