The rise of customized kicks has given athletes—especially basketball players—the liberty to put a personal touch to their shoes. This UAAP season saw just that as superstars like Ricci Rivero, Thirdy Ravena, and Jerrick Ahanmisi have brought fire to the hardwood with their own specialized kicks. Halloween was no exception for these star players, who donned the most creative freaky fest sneakers:
