Countless sneakerheads are probably anticipating and awaiting the release of Nike’s latest, new woven model, the NikeLab Free Inneva 2, which hits the shelves on August 22nd, 2015. However, apart from their new silhouette, NikeLab is also enticing collectors by unveiling another upcoming sneaker. Pigalle, the Parisian clothing, shoes and accessories brand, has had collaborated with Nike Basketball several times on sneakers like Air Force 1 PPP Collection. Now, Pigalle and Nike are teaming up once again for another collaboration that will hit the shelves on one of the upcoming Nike release dates in the form of a new redesigned Nike LeBron 12 Elite colorway.
Not so long ago, LeBron James and Stéphane Ashpool, the founder of Pigalle, teamed up to establish a basketball clinic in Shanghai, China. The aim of the basketball clinic is to firmly establish “athletic fundamentals” and serve as a source of creative inspiration. Apart from those who are a part of Stéphane’s own program, members of Nike Rise also attended the event, where the Pigalle x NikeLab LeBron 12 was unveiled as a collaboration sneaker by the two brands.
Stéphane’s inspiration and perception behind the Pigalle x NikeLab LeBron 12 Elite is to transform the twelfth signature LeBron James basketball shoe to a lifestyle one. Stéphane himself describes the sneaker as a “futuristic style” of the Nike LeBron 12 Elite. Stéphane, who has won an Andam Award, chose to dress up the entire base of this new sneaker in white, adored with chrome accents all over. To make this LeBron 12 Elite version resemble other NikeLab collaborations, the upper also sports a speckled print pattern, which represents a basketball shot clock.
The fact of the matter is that several upcoming Nike release dates 2015 will be marking the retail debut of the unique Pigalle x NikeLab LeBron 12 Elite. For instance, August 18th will be marking the arrival of this sneaker at the Shanghai-based NikeLab X158 and August 19th will be marking its arrival at the Hong Kong-based NikeLab PS7. Finally on September 3rd, the sneaker will hit the shelves at the remainder of the NikeLab locations and will be up for grabs on Nike.com as well.
