Nike has been doing an increasingly good job marketing Manny Pacquiao gear to fans in the U.S. after focusing primarily on the Philippines earlier in his career. Even so, his signature shoes are usually pretty cool and sometimes overlooked.
Manny has already had some limited edition Nike Zoom Huarache Trainers release this year in conjunction with the Fight Night Champion video game, but it seems he's getting an even newer model to commemorate his upcoming bout with Shane Mosley. As you can see in the pics here, his 'MP' logo is visible on the soles, the date of the fight is on the tongues, and the colors of the Filipino flag are prominent in the design as they are for a lot of his gear.
There's no release date for these yet, but since the online Nike Store is nearly completely sold out of its previous run of Pacquiao stuff, it would not be surprising to see these kicks as part of a new wave of items over the next few weeks.
(Props to Sole Collector for showing these off.)
