With Nike well on their way to taking over the outfitting contracts for the NFL, you can expect the realm of Football related PE’s to get a lot deeper in the future. A quick taste of that was the Nike 2012 Pro Bowl Pack, a trio of trainers that didn’t find their way onto the field of Aloha Stadium but were quite a treat for the involved players nonetheless. With the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max Breathe, the Nike Free Trainer 5.0, and a slick colorway of the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse all included, it was the kind of pack that likely would have been snapped up pretty quickly in the event of a retail release. And while that didn’t go down you still have a chance at grabbing a pair, as the full set is up for grabs on eBay now. Hit the jump for the shots of them and check out the auctions from zoomkobepe on eBay.

Excited for the Pro Bowl? All-Star festivities in all sports are always a great fan-draw, but if you’re a Giants or a Patriots fan, don’t expect your team’s Pro Bowl selections to get any action, because they need to be well-rested and healthy for the game that really counts – the Superbowl. Not long ago, Sneaker News showed you the Nike 2012 Pro Bowl Pack, which featured the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max Breathe, the Nike Free Trainer 5.0, and the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse; all three feature the a sick ‘FTBL Maximus Athleta’ labeling around the shoe, the 01.29.12 date stitched into the inner lining, and a special graphic of the state of Hawaii on the soles of the Air Max 90 Hyperfuse and Free Trainer 5.0. Check out the detailed gallery of the entire set below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more information and updates on this sick season’s-end pack of Nike footwear. via NK.

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.

With “breathability” being a buzzword this year, it comes as no surprise that the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max is scheduled for a ventilation upgrade. No, its not getting the Hyperfuse treatment like so many other sneakers this year, instead it will evolved into the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max Breathe, featuring perforated paneling on the upper that encourages air passage. Of course the basics of the trainer remain intact, including the all important 360 Max Air sole. Take a full look at both of the Summer 2012 colorways after the jump and let us know what you think of this upgrade on the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max. via CK
