The Lights Out Nike Air Trainer is set to hit the states tomorrow, 9/25, at a handful of Nike accounts. Here is some background on the sneaker:
“In honor of the number one ranked pound-for-pound boxer in the world, Nike will launch the limited edition Manny Pacquiao Nike Trainer 1 on Friday, September 25. The sneaker features a translucent rubber bottom with the date of Pacquiao’s last fight (5/2/09) – a win over Ricky Hatton – as well as the time of the fight in which Pacquiao scored a knockout over Hatton (2:59). The back heel is laser etched with an eagle symbol that pays homage to his native country, the Philippines. In addition, the tongue tab features Pacquiao’s “MP” and “Pac Man Knows” logos while the shoe incorporates glow-in-the-dark stitching and laces.
Inspired by the popular Nike Air Trainer worn by world-class athletes Bo Jackson and John McEnroe, who ignited the athletic training boom 20 years ago, the new Nike Trainer 1 was designed to provide today’s athletes with lightweight comfort and support as they prepare for competition.
To address the needs of athletes and the demands of today’s dynamic training, the Nike Trainer 1 features Nike DiamondFLX, a patent-pending outsole system that provides flexibility and support through multi-directional movement – ideal for any training regimen.
A lightweight upper, with midfoot and forefoot overlays connected to the lacing system, works with an inner Dynamic Fit sleeve to provide a secure, glove-like fit and the lock-down support a foot needs. The mid-sole also features a Nike Max Air unit in the heel to provide impact protection and comfort.
The limited edition MP Trainer 1 will retail for a suggested price of $110. The shoe will be sold at the following retail locations.”
The Nike Air Trainer 1 x Manny Pacquiao “Lights Out” is set to release tomorow on Nike.com, at Niketown NY, Niketown San Francisco, 21 Mercer (New York), Undefeated (Las Vegas), Kicks Hawaii, Fatlace, and The Montalban (LA).
