Shoes and Party. I may be too old to party but I love Converse shoes like my son so I joined in the fun yesterday at the Converse Block Party SM Mall of Asia's Music Hall attended by celebrities and famous models.
The Converse Block Party like the Fourth of July Block Parties in the United States was more than just a street party with live performances of the best bands, The Philippine All-Stars, KrumPinoy, Callalilly, Gloc-9 with Pointblanc, Beatbox Philippines. Hosted by Kat Alano and other famous DJs of the country, I really enjoyed the music with the games played by participating universities in basketball, skateboarding and watched the amazing visual artists create artworks inspired by Converse.
I had a great time enjoying the party with media friends and the rest of the community since the event was free for all. The block party is not just a perfect showcase for Converse as the preferred urban outdoors apparel - it is also an opportunity to show the not-so-obvious reality that the community is most united when members gather outdoors to celebrate. Converse's iconic street-wear status bridges the gap between individuals. Like most Filipinos who love the Chuck Taylors or sporting the Star Chevron logo, I've also enjoyed watching all families who participated posing with the big rubber shoes in the photobooth and the art design booths.
Basketball and Skateboarding most Filipino teens enjoy was also featured with universities participating for exhibition. It was hard taking pictures of young kids enjoying the Open Skate sessions being a mom but the Skate Clinic teaching old and new skateboarding tricks wowed the audience.
The block party also showed designs of the new Converse shoes fit for any type of occasions. I had a great look on what to buy for my son's school shoes and I can't wait to head for the malls this week.
It was a great community block party that created an inspiring and memorable experience Converse we all enjoyed yesterday. Who wouldn't love a classic and comfortable Converse rubber shoes?
