Almost exactly one year ago Nike released the ‘Agimat’ colorway of the Nike LeBron 14… a special nod for LeBron James’ fans in Philippines. Agimat is a Filipino word for “amulet” or “charm”.
Just a couple of days ago a similar make up applied onto the LeBron Soldier 12 has been spotted at one of Footlocker stores located in Las Vegas.
It’s very similar to the aforementioned LEBRON XIV with a deep navy base, gold branding, and even that special graphic lining on the inside.
Several stores already have them but keep your eyes peeled for a wider release. I’ll let you know.
The last time we got a chance to but a St. Vincent – St. Mary colorway at retail was the Zoom LeBron VI… almost 9 years ago!
Nike has turned things around and seems like we get another shot this year. It’s funny how Nike used the House of Hoops platform to kick off the Solider 1 with the first High School releases. Now they’re back to using HoH for the LeBron Watch releases and back to releasing school PEs to public.
The presented ‘SVSM’ SOLDIER XII offers a simple White and Green look, but I’m sure fans will appreciate the details including the IRISH on the strap, the Dunkman logo on the heel, and the Fighting Irish logo on the insole.
Check out the gallery below and stay tuned to NIKELEBRON.net for release information once available.
Three days ago, on April 12th, Nike was supposed to launch the Nike LeBron Soldier XII in the initial ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ colorway. If you can’t find them… you’re ain’t the only one. For some reason only the Big Kids’ version is available for purchase.
Turns out the SOLDIER XII has been delayed in both U.S. and Europe markets. Footlocker Europe dropped some info that we should expect them in May. I’m not sure if this only applies to the initial colorway because there’s the second version – ‘Hazel Rush’ – coming out next week. It is still scheduled to drop on April 19th.
Retailers in Asia didn’t get the memo, it seems, and some stores have released the shoe to public. At least we get some detailed pictures including a first look at the SOLDIER XII box, which for the first time gets a brand new design. Check out the close ups below and keep checking back for updates on the actual release date for the Soldier 12.
