Pigalle Nike LeBron 12 Elite

The Pigalle x NikeLab LeBron 12 Elite will be the latest collaboration from Stéphane Ashpool’s Pigalle and Nike Basketball, this time using the Nike LeBron 12 as the silhouette.

On Sunday in Shanghai, LeBron James hosted a basketball clinic for young athletes. The goal: to instill in them athletic fundamentals and inspire creativity. Sharing James’ desire to use basketball for good, Stéphane Ashpool, founder of Parisian label Pigalle, joined the group, which united local standouts from the Nike RISE initiative with young Parisian players from Ashpool’s own program.

The event, part of James’ summer tour through Asia, marks James and Ashpool’s second meeting. The first occurred in 2009, when the two convened in Paris for the dedication of the Pigalle community basketball court.

James and Ashpool introduced the new Pigalle x NikeLab LeBron 12 Elite at the Shanghai clinic. Ashpool’s creative take on the performance silhouette features aesthetic elements geared for off-court wear. These include a muted White and Silver color scheme that contrasts the brighter colors recently featured in James’ signature series. In addition, the speckled print on the upper alludes to basketball’s shot clock and the passing of time – and references the broader NikeLab x Pigalle collection that dropped in June.

The vertical wings, which wrap the foot for lockdown and stability, are treated with an anodized chrome finish to give the shoe a high-tech aesthetic. Additional premium details include extra memory foam in the collar for superior comfort, a leather tongue with a rubberized Pigalle logo and a geometric lace lock. The pull-tab on the heel features both the LeBron and Pigalle logos as well.
