Manny Pacquiao x Nike - Trainer 1 - Lights Out

The first version of the Nike Trainer, as limited as it is, caused a stir among sneaker collectors, and it now fetches a pretty penny on ebay. This version is sure to be as coveted, as the stark black, gray, white, and glow in the dark green combination is striking enough in the light, but the glow in the dark stitching, midsole, swoosh, and laces take this shoe to an amazing technical level. These will only be released next Friday, September 25th at the Nike store in Fort Bonifacio, Philippines, and customers are only allowed one pair. "Lights out" in the title is an obvious double meaning of glowing in the dark, and knocking out Hatton on 5/2/9--a time revealed with a glowing sole on the heel (as well as the time of the knockout in the second round). The embroidered eagle on the heel and the "MT" insignia on the tongue complete the Manny Pacquiao   theme. An amazing example of clean design and innovative technology, this trainer will be on the want list of many a collector. via: KC31.
