Mass-produced, government-sponsored sneakers seem to be a thing nowadays.

When Makati launched the so-called "Air Binays" last month, it was only a matter of time before another LGU took the idea and ran with it.

Mandaluyong is all in on the trend with the release of the so-called "Air Abalos" shoes (or, as someone on social media quick with the pun gun said, the "Jumpman-daluyong.")


Like the Binays, the Abaloses are a family of politicians long associated with Mandaluyong. Its current mayor, Menchie Abalos, is the wife of her predecessor, Benhur. Benhur, meanwhile, is the son of Benjamin Sr., who had held the post in the 1990s.
