    Quick question/rant...

    Did the PI just pick up on Kid Robot?

    In this video, they show Futura/Subware (STASH) figures. On MYX, they have/had a Dunny for their icon/reading cards, and a store in Greenbelt I think is nowselling Munnies as table decorations...

    wow pretty cool that Nike sponsors musicians.. i think their sponsored ball players easily get a yearly budget thats about 6figures.
    have you guys seen the billboard of (I think) KC Concepcion for Human along EDSA. If im right shes wearing a pair of Bapestas.. but they could beFAPES.

    I thought they were just sneaker heads cause i remember seeing raimund and mong rockin out with AF1's.. but being endorsed never stepped in my mind. Andi used to think only blue chip players and some select teams were some of the few who were asked to endorse the swoosh. But then again i just heard that Adidasendorses Sponge Cola. Maybe Nike is really going for local market.

    Back in HS i remember if Nike really saw potential in a player who could make it big in the College scene they'd give that player a pair or two a year!Now? Blue chip college players get like a hefty early budget that you could probably get every shoe that dropped in a year.

    Sponge Cola and Up Dharma Down are with the 3 stripes while Francis M., Sandwich, Kamikazee and I think even Lougee of Mojofly and Mark of Rivermaya are withthe swoosh....and also I know a lot of stylists who use fake stuffs for pictorials because they're gonna return them to the store after the shootanyway...they'd tell that the size is too big blah blah blah[​IMG]

    There are a number of local celebrities who are with the swoosh and stripes. I don't think they are signed under each label, but they just getsent free stuff. For Mong, I think he started out as a plain sneakerhead, then just got picked up by Nike after.

    Top of mind, I remember BJ Manalo being Adidas-sponsored when we were in our sophomore (or junior) year in high school. Jai Reyes got Nike stuff in highschool, switch to Adidas when he set foot in college.

    Like in the US, coaches here are being signed as endorsers too. Norman and Chot are with Nike (so are the Pumarens).
