An image of what netizens are calling the "Air Abalos"—which references Mayor Carmelita Abalos—has emerged on social media, barely two months after photos of the government-issued pair from Mandaluyong's neighboring business district spread like wildfire and even got positive reviews.
And just like its predecessor, the Champion-looking shoe that was distributed by the Mandaluyong LGU prompted everyone online, sneakerhead or not, to give their hot take on the latest footwear craze. Here are some of the amusing comments from Reddit:
A sneaker rivalry is brewing

Appreciate the review, brotha
At the end of the day, Kobe would be proud
