Team Pacquiao

2 12 2009

Couple weeks ago we all seen Manny Pacquiao defeat Miguel Cotto in a 12th round TKO. Earlier that day, Nike released the third edition of the Manny Pacquiao Air Trainer 1. Like the past two shoe releases, this shoe was limited to only a certain amount of stores and in limited quantities around the nation and around the world. The shoe commemorates Pacquiao’s homeland by lacing the shoe with the Philippine’s national colors. The shoe was white, with red and blue accents, and a set of yellow laces. In the Bay Area, the shoe released at Champs San Francisco, Niketown, and Fatlace. There were people lined up waiting to get their pair. My friend Mark was able to get his pair by lining up in front of Fatlace at 4am, he was 9th in line; the store only had 14 pairs. It crazy to see how Manny Pacquiao went from being sponsored by No Fear to being on the cover for Nike Sportswear. If the Mayweather fight does happen, one of the most anticipated fights of the year, then you can be sure that Nike will have something planned to market their pound for pound champion. Hopefully this time I can get lucky and get a pair.
