Last Sept 15, I was invited at the highly anticipated Sole Slam Manila event at One Esplanade, Manila. It is a yearly event for sneaker fans to buy, sell and meet sneaker enthusiasts. The event was hosted by Ben Baller, international model Christine Mendoza was also present. Being present in all 6 events that Sole Slam Manila organized, this packed the most crowd. Here are some of the photos.

My good friend Kim together with Cy, Cheng  and Calvin from Sole City showcased Sb’s

Michael Lau Janoski’s

Possibly one of the most expensive pairs at the event, this Nike Dunk Low Pro “Paris” which is rumored to cost around 5,000$.

The gates opened at 3pm.

Trilogy Boutique was also at the event selling Illest gear, The Ben Baller X Illest collab was the crowd favorite.

Ben Baller rocked a pair of Doernbecher Jordan 4’s.

Supreme SB’s

Vans and Supreme goodies.

These floral Solarsoft Moccasin’s looked way much better in person.

My favorite pair at the event, Oregon Ducks 4’s.
