My family has always been based in the south, and long before we had sports stores in our main malls (Festival and ATC), we've always had Toby's Sports.
Last night, I celebrated with Toby's Sports as they marked their 40th year anniversary with a grand party called "It's Game Time". The event was held in a huge venue in Metrowalk Ortigas, graced by Toby's supporters from all walks of life: from the big bosses, employees, franchisees, partners, athletes, and us friends from the media. They commemorated all the people that were part of their four successful decades in the industry. It also coincides with the retirement of Toby's chief executive officer Mr. Bobby Claudio.
Sharing photos from last night's event, and my "if I have the money" list of stuff I am eyeing in Toby's!
Enjoyed the event with my forever buddy, Ava! Dress code is sporty, which I forgot, but buti nalang I am ALWAYS in sporty ootds! Haha!
Like a true sports brand, a party is not complete without a Players Lounge! They have this set-up in two corners of the venue!
Events hosts Vince and Michelle:
Barangay Ginebra Players were also there, can you spot Trice, Seph, and me in this photo? Haha! This was flashed in the huge screen onstage.
They awarded their employees who've been with them for 30 to 35 years! Grabe ang galing lang their dedication, which says a lot about this passionate brand!
We ended the night with good music from a local band discovery The Juans. They also had UST's Gawi and Gary V perform last night!
Today, Toby's Sports has over 50+ stores nationwide. They also extended their well-curated sports and fitness shopping experience online, through www.tobys.com. I browsed their website, and saw a lot of stuff that filled my "wishlist". And so, since they are celebrating their 40 years, I am sharing my FORTY personal favorites from their online platform.
Browse through, you might find something you need too!
1) To make my sneakers even more comfortable:
2) No more tripping on loose shoelaces:
3-5) White sneakers that are not only stylish, but also comfortable for long walks:
6) I've always wanted to own a comfortable pair of pink sneakers! 🌸
7) Chunky sneakers trend!
8-10) I will never have enough of black sneakers! Whenever I travel, I prefer black shoes since they are not dumihin, they match all my outfits, and I make sure they have mesh material for guaranteed comfort.
11) Cute lifestyle sneakers that I can wear with my skirts and dresses:
12-14) I've overused my Adidas slides for almost 4 years now, so I am sure di masasayang if I get these black pairs.
15-17) Lightweight and quality Adidas and Nike tights / pants for workout or for travels:
18-20) Since I am always in sneakers.

23-25) Still not over the fanny pack trend! So stylish and practical:
26) Neutral Adidas cap that I can sport during bad hair days:
27-29) Logo Mania! I love adding a statement sporty piece when I style my outfits:
30-32) Gym at home! Toby's Sports also carries exercise equipment like treadmill, elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and even pilates balls, weights, etc.
33) Shoe-care products from Crep:
34) Classic Nike sports bra:
35-36) Overnight and gym Adidas backpacks:
37-39) Oversized sports tees (men's and women's) that I usually wear with my skirts:
40) Cooling towel that I usually bring when I go to the gym and even for travels as they dry quickly!
What I like about this store is that they have ALL my favorite sports brands under one roof! I also appreciate that their pricing scheme is often times more affordable. Toby's is really one of my go-to when buying sneakers or tees.
