One thing I noticed about the UAAP this season is that the arena has also become a fashion runway. It’s where players show off their sense of style. One trend in particular that is putting its best foot forward is the custom kicks that several players have strutting with on the hardwood. Here are some of our favorite sneakers we’ve seen so far:

Ricci Rivero: PG3 x Lion King

Kyrie Irving 5 x SpongeBob kicks

The Kyrie Irving 5 SpongeBob collection was released just last month and a number of stars have already rocked them on the court. From Thirdy Ravena and Juan Gomez de Liaño to Ricci Rivero, the SpongeBob shoes are clearly a popular choice.
