Manila Sneaker Expo returns for it's 5th straight year






MANILA -  Another huge sneaker convention is returning to Manila for it's 5th consecutive year. Which means it's that time of the year again where you break your piggy banks and save those payday cheques (That's if you're into sneakers or streetwear fashion, of course.)

The Manila Sneaker Expo is perhaps, if not, the biggest sneaker event in The Philippines. Many resellers, shops, and collectors gather together at this event showcasing their exclusive collections and "deadstock" (Sold out, meaning hard to find) and sample pairs up for sale. You don't need to be a sneakerhead or into fashion if you want to go, as there will also be various exhibits of sneaker art and looking at the unique designs of each sneaker, limited or not, is already appealing to the eye.

The event isn't just about kicks, but also streetwear fashion with many products ranging from jackets to pants. Popular brands such as Supreme and BAPE are among the brands that MSE has to offer.

The infamous "Sneaker Arcade" machine will also be present, which is a keymaster machine loaded with different sneakers from different brands as the prize for those who will be lucky and accurate enough to score.

Like last year's event, there will be a pair of Adidas Yeezy Boost V2's raffled, the only difference being it will be the "Zebra" colorway up for grabs instead of the "Beluga" colorway from last year. The winner get's to keep the pair of his/her size for free. Anyone can join the raffle as long as they have purchased tickets to the event. The stub will come with the ticket and you can drop it at the admission table before entering the event hall.

There will also be a sneaker auction. Various sneakers in different sizes from Jordan Brand, Adidas, and Nike will be up for grabs in an ascending-open auction style. Last year's auction included pairs like the Adidas Triple Black Ultraboost and Jordan 1 "Banned".

And of course, the event wouldn't be complete without a special guest. Last year featured sneaker personality and performance tester Chris Chase a.k.a. Nightwing2303 of weartesters.com. This year will feature musician/actor/sneaker personality Jacques Slade a.k.a. Kustoo, who is well known for his videos and reviews of early releases, sample pairs, Player Exclusives (PE's) and limited edition sneakers. 




       Kustoooooo!

How Much are the Actual Ginebra Championship Bonuses?

Barangay Ginebra celebrated a back to back Governors Cup Title and the principals were in the mood for giving

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got. The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
