Nike x Manny Pacquiao – Trainer 1 – Lights Out | U.S. Release Information

By - September 25th, 2009


2, 5 and 9 might be Manny Pacquiao’s lucky numbers. On May (5) second (2) of this year (oh 9), Pacquiao became the first man to knock out England’s Ricky Hatton. He did it in 2 minutes, 59 seconds. If there were only 259 or 529 of these amazing Nike Trainer 1s, we’d understand, but instead we find the numbers under a panel of translucent outsole. Those panels are among the scant few details on these kicks that aren’t black, grey or neon green. In the right light, the glow in the dark grey elements shift to that same shade of green. The “Lights Out’ theme is a perfect way to commemorate the Philippines’ native son in grand fashion, and previously we thought they’d only be released there. As it turns out, there’s going to be a release tomorrow, Friday, September 25th at a smaller-than-Tier-Zero list of US retailers.
