The PBA Finals is the best platform for players to shine. It's also the biggest stage to show off what they want to wear on the court. The action in the best-of-seven series, which San Miguel won, was hot, but several players had heat on their feet as well.
Check out all of the best sneakers from the 2019 Philippine Cup finals. Let us know what your favorite pair is in the poll below.
Ask anyone who the PBA's sneaker god is and there's an extremely high chance they'll say Chris Ross. The man has become a legend in the shoe game with the kind of heat he brings on the court. Recently, Chris has been rocking the Jordan 11s. In the finals we saw him wear the "Legend Blue" and the "Win like 96". Some players have tried to give Ross a run for his money, but with the red drip to match San Miguel's colors, Chris continues to come in strong.
Not a lot of PBA players can say they have their own signature shoe. In fact, among active players today, only Terrence Romeo can say that. In the finals, he rocked the white colorway of his very own Peak TR7. Previously, even after his sneaker released, Romeo was seen wearing other sneakers. In the Philippine Cup finals, though, he has stuck to his own. Look-wise, the TR7 keeps it simple. It's probably best because it allows Terrence's game to bring the flash.
Justin Melton, on the other hand, chose a different route and went with something eye-catching. The "Imma Be A Star" colorway has been a staple of James Harden's signature sneaker line. For the Harden Vol. 1 and Harden Vol. 2, the base color of the shoe was black and it had adidas' three-stripes in gold. In the Harden Vol. 3 though, the sneaker goes all out in gold to celebrate The Beard's run as league MVP. It also switches things up by renaming the colorway as "Imma Star". Because no doubt, Harden is already.
The Kyrie 5 has long been out in the market but PJ Simon felt like going with the Kyrie 4 in the Philippine Cup Finals. He brought out the 'Power is Female' colorway, dressed in light aqua and neo turquoise. Simon may not be the biggest sneakerhead among players but he certainly turned heads with this one.
