* 8.4.13 UAAP FUNday Sunday

UAAP games for Men's basketball is on a two week break except the Women's and Junior's game which is held during weekends because of the FIBA Asia Championship happening in our country. I was assigned to cover the four Women's basketball game today.


I woke up early and still thinking of what happened yesterday for not getting my pair of Jordan 3 Fire Red. I arrived aroun
d 10am at San Juan Arena and covered the first game between UE and UP where UP won. I also covered the next games between UST and  NU where NU won, Ateneo against ADMU where Adamson won and DLSU vs FEU which is the team that fight during the championship last season and FEU won and remain unbeaten for the first round.

The games ended around 4pm and while covering the games and I checked my facebook sneaker group, I found a few resellers of the shoe and I contacted three of them, One of them is selling the pair for 800 pesos more from the SRP but the pair got bought right away and there is this seller who is selling it for 9,000 pesos. I called his number and we almost closed a deal to meet in Tomas Morato, I was starving and skipped lunch because of my shoot that I decided to dropby Robinsons Galeria to eat first before going to meet the seller. Before I ate, I thought of dropping by at the Nike Park store in Robinsons, I saw a size 15 on display for the Jordan 3 Fire Red and I asked the staff if they have a size 10, 10.5 or 11 maybe for me, he said they only have size 12. I asked to fit the size 12 pair and when the staff came back he said they have a size 11.5 which is fine for me, I fitted the pair and it's fits fine because my Jordan 4 Fire Red and Jordan 11 Concord are both size 11. To end the story I cop the pair and went home happy for the SRP 8,195 pesos and I'm happy because it's a legit pair from Nike.

This maybe my last pair before my wife delivers our baby which is around the end of August or first week of September. I'm thankful for my wife for supporting me for my collections even though it is expensive.

* SADurday Jordan 3 Fire Red Release

I started collecting Jordan shoes this year, I already have three which is my Jordan 4 and 5 (Fire Red) and my Jordan 11 Concord. I missed getting the Jordan 13 He Got Game and Jordan 8 Playoffs release but I told myself that I will be getting the Jordan 3 Fire Red colorway which will be released today.

Me and workmate Bry who is also into Jordan shoes decided to go to Titan22 store at The Fort after work to get a pair. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go online and get a reservation for the shoes.

We arrived at the store around 11am and I see people getting their pairs. I asked for a pair from the staff in Titan but he said all pairs are for RSVP only. We went to the nearest Nike store in Bonifacio High Street to check and we saw a short line, unfortunately the size left are 8.5 down and size 13 up. It was a sad day because I was really waiting for the release of the shoes and I have the money and I didn't get one. I can say I'm still new with the shoegame and now I learned my lesson.

I might just get the next Jordan 10 Steel Grey and Jordan 12 Taxi release and make sure to get a reservation. I felt sad by my only option is to get one from resellers. I told myself to just cheer for the Philippine team game today against Chinese Taipei for the FIBA Asica tournament,

Till the next Jordan release....
