Becoming just the third-ever NBA player of Filipino descent, Jalen Green has been embracing his Southeast Asian roots since storming into the League in 2021 as the second-overall pick. Traveling back to Manila last summer for his tour with adidas, the 3-Stripes are paying further homage to Green’s heritage for the start of AAPI Heritage Month with a colorful tribute via the adidas BYW Select.

Having worn the titular pair throughout a number of games in March, the Lightstrike cushioned ensemble enjoys a mismatched color blocking utilizing the hues of the Philippines flag for a vibrant “Vivid Red” right foot and striking “Royal Blue” left foot. Offset by the opposing tint along the laces and presiding loops, a synonymous wave of crisp white crashes atop both pair’s neoprene heel counter and BOOST midsole while hits of yellow strike the tread and shank underfoot.

Scheduled to release on May 15th for a retail price of $150, in the meantime enjoy official imagery of Jalen Green’s adidas BYW Select “Philippines” below.
