am i the only one thinking that its a bit weird holding an even like this in the Philippines?
I would have thought most of the people attending could only be tourists, the rich or celebrities. Its pretty damn expensive for the average filipino to afford legit shoes let alone be into the whole limited edition scene.

I used to think like that too until i decided to visit here after 21 years. Then i found out that the whole sneaker/streetwear culture is definitely on the up up here and it seems like its gonna keep progressing. Thats why i decided to stay here longer and start making moves. It doesnt really matter if the consumers here are tourist, celebrities or locals....just know that there is a scene here and its growing.

If you think back 5 years ago or longer there werent too many heads willing to buy kicks that cost more than $200 or camp out...but the culture there blew up and now you got kids camping out for days just to purchase over priced sneakers.

Obviously the cost of the limited/exclusive products are not for everyone...but there are people that will make it happen no matter what it takes to cop the hottest shit....just like everywhere else.

Philippines is just a lil late but best believe that the sneaker/streetwear culture here exist and is on the rise. In fact, this is the second time the Sneaker Pimps event visited here and i don't think its will be the last time. They've seen the drastic growth of the culture from the last time they visited here which was 2 years ago.

thats nice that there is a scene there. smokeyface I haven't visited in 2 years and when i do i don't stay long in manila. I'm mostly in Batangas. I definitely have to check it out when i go back over there. Due to the rich/poor divide being so prevelant i never thought the culture would flourish there. That being said i know there are many serious toy collectors over in the Philippines (i used to be one).
