It’s been a long time coming. Upon hearing the concept a few months back, I liked the idea. It was too good to be true. And after a couple of months waiting and wondering, the wait’s almost over. This August, TITAN, the first ever basketball-dedicated retail store in the market will open its doors to the general public. It makes sense to do this, as the store was designed specifically with the Filipino basketball player in mind. Located in the up and coming Forbeswood Retail area at Burgos Circle (corner of Rizal Drive) in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig – TITAN will house the first and only basketball specialty store in the Philippines as well as a traditional 4-chair men’s barbershop.
“We wanted to create a space that would be perfect for anyone who loves basketball”, says Jeffrey Cariaso, co-founder and one of TITAN’s owners. “We wanted a store that would give basketball consumers the power of choice with the products that he wants. And with the barbershop, it was about having a space where if you’re into basketball and you love the game and the culture that comes with it, you’ll feel right at home.” The store will carry the latest and most innovative performance basketball footwear, apparel and accessories from Nike, adidas, Brand Jordan, And1, Converse, Reebok, K1X and New Era.
TITAN’s barbershop services will primarily focus on haircuts and shaves. TITAN will open on August 4, 2010, with 3 exclusive shoe releases from Nike slated on that day. The Nike Zoom Kobe V “Big Stage” Edition (Home and Away) and the Air Max LeBron VII NFW “MVP” shoe will be available in limited quantities on Opening Day.
More release information will be made available soon. Don’t worry guys. It’ll be real soon. Just a couple more days.
