Manny Pacquiao is in Vegas right now, making his final preparations for his Saturday night showdown against workhorse Timothy Bradley. We previewed what Manny will be wearing to the ring just the other day, but here’s a look at the fully wearable Nike Free HyperKO Shield built with Manny’s hardcore training methods in mind; it features a Reflective Silver/Game Royal-White colorway, which should give the shoes even more visual punch with the candlelight power, but it’s the personal details that bring these to another level. A silhouette of the Philippines adorns the medial ankle, while commemorative detailing summarizing PacMan’s boxing accomplishments provides a special touch on the insole. The high-cut boxing-specific Trainer features a Free sole, while the upper takes advantage of the weather-ready Shield fortification, giving the Free HyperKO Shield the added ability to be used outdoors. These are set for a release tomorrow, June 8th, on the eve of Manny’s fight, so check the details below and let us know what you think.
