Unless you live under a rock, you probably have seen or at least heard about the crazy brawl that transpired during the third window match between the Philippines and Australia at the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.
It has been a week and we really need to move on from all that, so why don’t we instead show you some of the top pairs worn on court during the match. @kicksmvp made sure to list the most of the eye-catching colorways worn. Let us know if you agree with what caught our attention.

This edition’s top three is a special lot. Not everyday do you have athletes playing in their own signature shoes in this region, but this game saw the clash of fellow PEAK Sports endorsers face off against on another: NBA Champions Matthew Dellavedova of Australia brought on his Delly 1’s as he faced off against regional crowd favourite and first Asian to score his own signature shoe line, Terrence Romeo of the Philippines. Meanwhile, the top spot in the list goes to the special edition Nike LeBron Soldier 12’s which was meant to be a nod to the Filipino’s love for basketball and warrior mentality.
Want more? We will get another chance in September during the upcoming second round of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers to spot more on-feet fire. Let us know in the comments if there are any pairs we may have missed.
