New: Titan unveiled their 3rd collaboration with Nike Basketball and LeBron James

Posted on Aug 21, 2022 in Nike

Have you ever heard of the Ultramar? The half-lion, half-dolphin seen on the City of Manila’s coat-of-arms? Well, that mythical creature means ‘Over the Seas’, a nod to the Spanish crown’s influence and authority despite being far from it all.

Over time, the Ultramar has evolved, but still present in our everyday lives. It’s still around us, seen across flags, logos, government seals, and so on. To banner in their third collaboration with LeBron James and Nike Basketball, TITAN celebrates the Philippines’ unique and incredible passion for basketball.

Forever flipping the script from its previous collaborations, the TITAN x Nike LeBron 19 Low ‘Beyond the Seas’ is done in royal white with gold accents. This represents our love for the game that’s so ingrained and so fundamental that we sometimes overlook it. Wherever it may be, that distinct spirit and love for the game is the same all over.

LeBron shares that same passion. Bron’s appreciation of the Filipino love for basketball can be seen on the quotes inscribed on the shoe’s forefoot:

On one side, it reads “The passion for basketball in the Philippines is incredible.” and on the other, “I look forward to returning to Manila again.”

The TITNAN x Nike LeBron 19 Low “Beyond The Seas” is a tribute to the universal love for basketball that is uniquelyshared by so many around the world, a passion for the game that can only be describe
as ‘incredible.’

To further highlight the shoe’s unveiling, the shoe was debuted earlier this afternoon by a selection of 22 boys and girls from around the country who were invited to special 2-day camp headed by TITAN co-founder and basketball legend Jeffrey Cariaso while being assisted by Nike coaches. The campers were exposed to elite level individual and team development, aimed to make them have a better appreciation of what it takes to succeed at a high level while celebrating their unique passion for basketball.

To round out their camp, they were a part of a co-ed All-Star scrimmage that also featured national standouts RJ Abarrientos, Camille Clarin, Camille Nolasco and DVT athlete Gian Mamuyac. The scrimmage was attended by other TITAN and Nike athletes, select media and the campers’ families and friends. A short film about the campers, the weekend and the collaboration between TITAN and Nike Basketball is under production and will premiere on September 3, 2022.

The TITAN x Nike LeBron 19 Low ‘Beyond the Seas’ will be available in all TITAN stores, & the TITAN App on September 4, 2022 and in select accounts around the world including SNKRS, the NBA Store PH on September 8, 2022. Download the TITAN App and follow @titan_22 on Instagram for more updates.
