As far as budget is concerned, it’s been tough for Filipino K-Pop stans in recent months with idol groups coming over one after another to do a concert.

After Blackpink put on another spectacular show at the Philippine Arena last month, another girl group in the industry’s upper echelon in Red Velvet announced it will visit Manila in May for the quintet’s first solo concert here.

Sneakerheads can relate. Footwear brands continue to release the dopest kicks one would not be able resist.

Save for your aching bank accounts, everyone’s happy at the end of the day, right?

Nevertheless, we listed some of the hottest pairs that will hit the shelves very soon.

Luka Doncic

The Dallas Mavericks star debuted his Jordan Luka 2 signature silhouette last April 5 against the Sacramento Kings.

Not much details have been released yet but the black and purple pair features the return of an IsoPlate support.

Too bad we won’t be seeing more from Doncic this season as the Mavericks were eliminated from play-in contention.

Austin Reaves

While the Mavericks are on a downward spiral, the Los Angeles Lakers are on a roll, thanks in part to Austin Reaves.

Reaves has proven time and again he is a crucial piece in the proud franchise’s bid to win another ring this season with LeBron James and Anthony Davis looking healthy.

That’s why it’s only fitting for the hard-nosed cager to get his first signature shoe from Chinese brand Rigorer.

Check out AR1, which hits the shelves soon.

Daniel Gafford, Hamidou Diallo, and Terance Mann

It’s probably not a pair from your favorite player. While most fans tend overlook the invaluable contributions of these guys on the floor, their signature shoes are worth the second look.

Daniel Gafford, Hamidou Diallo, and Terance Mann are rocking these ZUP 1s from Anta, which will be available in stores this month.

Cop or drop?
