After giving a glimpse of his shoe collection, comedy superstar Vice Ganda showed some of his favorite sneakers.

In his latest vlog entry, the It's Showtime host said he decided to show his sneaker collection after getting numerous requests from his fans.

He started by showing off his Nike Air Jordan collection. One was his Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Banned, which he said is one of his favorite pairs. 

"I bought it like a few years back, like two or three years ago when I was in the States. Ire-release 'to kinabukasan pero gabi pa lang malala na 'yung pila kaya meron kaming binayarang pumila. Mahal 'to nung panahon na 'yun kasi mahirap siyang kunin," he said.

He also showed his Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro Mid in Deep Royal Blue, which was an early Christmas gift from his boyfriend, Ion Perez.  

"Ito, deep royal blue. 'Di ako mahilig sa mid, usually ang binibili ko lang low or high. 'Yung mga mid, 'di ako masyado mahilig pero gusto ko 'to. Nakita ko 'to sa Instagram. Sabi ko ang ganda ng kulay niya. Tapos nung narinig ni Ion na gusto ko 'to, 'di ko alam na in-order niya pala 'ko. Kaya nung tumawag ako sa reseller ko, sabi niya, 'May in-order na pong ganyan so Sir Ion.' Kaya na-touch ako, sabi ko, 'Akin kaya 'yun?' Hindi ko malaman kung ica-cancel ko 'yung order ko kasi baka may ibang pagbibigyan si Ion. Tapos hindi ko muna kinansel agad, inantay ko lang. Tapos pag-uwi ko, andoon na siya. Regalo sa akin 'to ni Ion bago mag-Pasko, kaya this is very special to me," said Vice.

Another was his Nike Air Force 1 in Aurora Green. 

"Regalo [rin] sa akin ni Ion before Christmas. Ang sarap, binibigyan ako ng shoes. Dati rati ako lang nang ako 'yung bigay nang bigay ng shoes. Halos maubos 'yung pera ko kabibili ng shoes buti na lang dumating sa buhay ko bago ako matigok na may lalaking magbibigay sa akin ng shoes," he said, in jest.

Vice went on to show his sneakers from luxury brands Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Balenciaga, Gucci, Off-White, and Versace. 

Asked what he plans to do with his massive sneaker collection, Vice said, in jest: "Collect collect, 'pag may nanghihingi bigay. 'Yung iba pinapanakaw ko sa mga kaibigan kong mababait nung simula, nakiki-hiram-hiram pero wala nang balikan. Isang malinaw na budulan. 'Yung iba pabudol, 'yung iba pamana."

Turning serious, he said: "Nahihiya kasi ako mag-benta. 'Yung mga sneakerheads kasi, ang ginagawa, nagco-collect sila tapos nire-resell din nila. Pinapaikot lang nila 'pag may bago. Kaya lang nahihiya kasi ako magbenta. Alam mo naman sa Pilipinas 'no, iti-tsismis ka, 'Si Vice Ganda naghihirap.' Kaya kaysa ibenta, dino-donate ko 'yung iba. Marami na akong sapatos na na-donate tapos pinagkakitaan nila 'yung sapatos ko. Marami rin akong naipamigay, marami rin akong na-share. Marami rin naman akong ayaw kong i-let go, gusto ko lang siyang tingnan kasi pinaghirapan ko silang lahat, eh."

The comedian dubbed the "Unkabogable Star" said he considers his sneaker collection, along with his other luxury items, as an investment.

"Itong mga sapatos na 'to, kung sasabihin mo, parang ang worldly, ang evil na niya sa sobrang dami. Pero you must understand na it is my job to look good almost all the time. You have to be looking good kapag nakikita ka ng mga tao kasi siyempre binabayaran ka nila, eh. Kasama 'yan sa investment namin bilang mga artista, and at the same time pinaghirapan ko rin naman 'yung mga 'yan," he said.
