Sunday Sneaks: The "kilig" shoes

Paul Lee's Kobe 11s are nice but these are not his "kilig" shoes.
You know the phrase "Happy Wife, Happy Life"?
Well you better believe that Paul Lee abides by that to the tee.
Magnolia's star Hotshot, who has a lovely wife in Ms. Rubie Chua, scored more than 21 points in his team's win Sunday in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup.
Paul Lee scored extra husband points with a kilig-worthy Nike ID creation that he just got over the weekend. It didn't stop him from wearing it right away though.
Choosing the Dualtone Racer as his canvas, the Leethal weapon created a simple black, white, and gold colorway.
Sa wakas dumating na din yung Nike ID ko 😍😍😍 If you take a closer look, pinalagyan ko ng numbers yung sa tongue ng shoes. Pinalagay ko sa left shoe 1025/October25 yan yung araw na nag I Do siya sakin 😍😍😍 at sa right shoe naman 0621/June21 yan yung araw na sinabi niya OO tayo na ❤️❤️❤️ One of my simple ways para hindi mawala kilig ng wife ko sakin 😘😘😘 Tips mga parekoy kalimutan niyo na lahat wag lang yung anniversary date niyo 🤣 kung ayaw niyo ng away 🤣 #MyNikeID #DualToneRacer #BlackAndGold #Nike #SwooshLove #Lethalweapon #AngasNgTondo
However, the special details lie in the tongue of the shoes where Lee put "0621" on one side and "1025" on another.
"0621" or June 21, is the date Ms. Rubie said yes to Paul about being an actual couple. "1025" or October 25, is the date they got married.
"One of my simple ways para hindi mawala kilig ng wife ko sakin," Lee said on his Instagram post.
"Tips mga parekoy, kalimutan niyo na lahat wag lang yung anniversary date niyo kung ayaw niyo ng away," he added.
Paul Lee everybody. Okay now back to regular scheduled programming aka Sunday Sneaks.
*Sunday Sneaks on a Monday ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
We are sticking with Paul Lee for the performance part of this week's Sunday Sneaks as the Leethal weapon picked up another W in the Nike Kobe 11 EM in the "Philippines" colorway.
Unlike the Agimat LeBron 14s, these pair of Kobes have nothing whatsoever that would link it to the Philippines except for the fact that they share the same colorway of deep royal blue and metallic gold.
But the Kobes released first though so you would think there's something in there but there's not.
Anyway, the Kobe 11 EM lows feature engineered mesh (that's why it's called EM) and a drop-in lunar midsole that has been standard for Kobe models now.
Lee likes his Kobes so it's no surprise he wore this one.
Up next is the adidas Dame 4 in the "Rose City" colorway worn by NLEX's Alex Mallari.
This release pays homage to Portland's favorite flower and sports a white and grey knitted upper. Red accents can also be found throughout the shoe.
The Dame 4 is one of the most solid budget performers out there as it features full-length Bounce cushion and improved overall fit.
Finally, the Nike LeBron 15 makes an apperance here by way of Alaska's Jeron Teng.
Built like a tank, it makes sense for Jeron to go for the LeBrons, which are basically tanks in shoe form.
The 15s, seen here in the original "Ashes" colorway, has a Battleknit upper in black, white, and grey that sits on top of a white midsole.
As for cushioning? A combination of max and zoom air. Oh and in case you didn't know, that's beastly.
