Scottie Thompson’s fans can now share with him his golden triumph with Gilas Pilipinas in the 19th Asian Games through the newest colorway of his sneakers.

World Balance’s ST2, the newest iteration of Thompson’s signature basketball shoe with the brand, is set to be released in the ‘Hero’ colorway which pays homage to the Philippines’ colors.

“Sobrang saya kasi ilalabas ng World Balance yung ST2 Hero colorway. Very historic and very special 'yung sapatos na yun para sa akin,” said Thompson, who actually debuted the colorway during Gilas’ stint in the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

“More than the history with the colorway, quality talaga ito kasi 'yung traction and performance, sobrang ok niya ipanglaro,” continued the Barangay Ginebra guard, who also sported the kicks during their victory over Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and the Jordan men’s national basketball team in the Asiad’s championship round.

ST2 Hero will be available in June in selected stores and on World Balance’s official website www.worldbalance.com.ph. The ST2 Hero retails for P3,999, with limited availability.
