50 pairs of Pacquiao shoes to be released in Manila

Fifty pairs of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao's running shoes will be sold in Manila on Wednesday as a lead up to the boxing champ's next fight against Shane Mosley on May 7.

A lottery will be held for 50 pairs of Nike Trainer 1.3 Max at Nike Park The Fort on April 27, the sports apparel brand said in a statement released on Tuesday.
Ballots will be distributed starting 5 p.m. with the lottery to begin at 7 p.m.

Also set to be available starting April 27 are the Nike Zoom Huarache Low and other Pacquiao-inspired apparel.

Said to be designed for the "multi-sport athlete," the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max bears the signature "MP" logo on the tongue and includes the sports apparel brand's Flywire and Max Air technologies. Each pair is priced at P7,995.
It also features text and images associated with Pacquiao on the inside of every shoe -- from his boxing glove and the word "Kamao" to his well-known saying, "Don't tell God you have a big problem. Tell your problems that you have a great God."

"As Manny's daily running shoe, the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max provides a soft and comfortable ride after hours of rigorous, high-impact training in the gym," Nike said.

"With mesh zones for cooling, the shoe is ideal for year-round use in hot climates such as Los Angeles and General Santos, Philippines, where the Pacman has been training for his upcoming bout," it added.
Pacquiao signed an endorsement deal with Nike in 2007, making him the first Filipino athlete to promote the brand.

Among the products in the MP line are shirts, boxing shoes and jackets.
