Manny Pacquiao’s got a lot on his plate right now, with the upcoming November 12th bout against Juan Manuel Marquez being his primary focus. It’s Manny’s hardcore training and dedication that makes him the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world – perhaps one of the best in the history of the sport – so it’s no surprise that he represents the leading athletic outfitter in the world in Nike. Earlier this year, Nike Training released a special PacMan-inspired colorway of the Trainer 1.3 Max, but this new edition is actually of the ‘Breathe’ variety, featuring additional ventilation on the upper. Additional details include the gradient scheme on the midsole, the special insoles, and the message of ‘Equality, Valor, Truth’ printed on the inner face of the tongue. These were originally an October 27th release, but it appears that they’ve been pushed back a bit – possibly for a date closer to the actual fight. Eastbay has them for pre-order right now (shipping on November 7th), so head there to reserve your pair.
