Another Pigalle and Nike collaboration is headed our way and this time a LeBron James silhouette is being used as the canvas.

In a recent basketball clinic held in Shanghai, members of Nike Rise along with Pigalle's Stephane Ashpool and players from his own basketball program were on hand as the Pigalle x NikeLab LeBron 12 Elite was officially unveiled.

The collaboration is Ashpool's vision of the LeBron 12 choosing to design the shoe from a more lifestyle, off-court perspective than an athletic one. Ashpool's decision to work on the 12 comes from his appreciation of the shoe's "futuristic style" while adding [the LeBron 12 Elite] is "the ulimate in comfort and aesthetics." For his iteration, Ashpool chose a white/metallic silver color palette - which contrasts the brighter offerings from recent LeBron 12 models - and incorporated a speckled print on the upper which not only references the pattern used on the Pigalle x NikeLab collection from earlier this summer, but also is meant to represent the basketball shot clock and meant to convey the passage of time.


The collaboration is slated to release initially on Tuesday, August 18 at NikeLab X158 in Shanghai, then the next day, August 19, in Hong Kong at NikeLab PS7, followed by global release at remaining NikeLab locations and nike.com/nikelab on Thursday, September 3.
