The Araw Cup tournament was held last June 12, coinciding with Independence Day, at the NBA Community Court located in Mandaluyong.

The BYW Select ‘Jalen Green Philippines ID’ is inspired by the Philippine flag, featuring the color combination of Vivid Red, Royal Blue, Cloud White, and Yellow elements.

Both the left and right shoe have mismatched uppers to pay respect to the national flag, while the logo and lacing are in reversed colors on the pair. White accents are seen on the heel and sockliner and the BOOST midsole has a pop of yellow.

Lastly, the shoes are also engineered with the Lightstrike cushioning and BOOST that allows users to feel comfortable and returns energy with every step taken.
