Singaporean sneaker designer Mark Ong may be a rock star in the sneaker world but after visiting the Philippines twice, he instantly fell in love with the culture and Pinoy College Hoops.

When a person has a thing for collecting and or wearing sneakers, you’re called a sneakerhead.

That’s true to those who play the game of basketball. And a hoops country like the Philippines is no exception. Although most Filipinos balled on a pair of Flip-flops/sandals/rubber slippers in the streets, having a pair of nice basketball sneakers can give any player a boost of confidence.

While they haven't forgotten about how to win games, they also haven't forgotten their loss to the National University Bulldogs last month. The Adamson Soaring Falcons waited patiently for the day to redeem themselves of the loss at the time. On a Thursday afternoon of August 18, they got their wish.

While "Thrashers" as skateboarders were called back in the 80's (the BMX bikers were known as "Riders" at the time), every thrasher/skater has his/her own custom board. Sure, a skateboard has a standard size and weight but for a thrashers, they like make it their own, jazz it up. Simply put, they have to standout one way or another.
