If you are aware of the full extent of the international basketball scene, you will know that the Philippines ranks among the biggest fans of the games. An unquenchable thirst for a deep connection to the game is still apparent across the country with the first Filipino basketball concept store – TITAN – at the center of the hoops ecosystem. Collaborating for its third opus with The Swoosh, the international brand is inspired by the legendary mythical creature, Leon de Ultramar, translated into English as Sea Lion. With new colorways of the heavily adorned Nike LeBron 20, time in the sun isn’t quite over with the 19th signing of the Nike LeBron 20, with TITAN recruiting the low-top version for its latest partnership.
