PACQUIAO FOR THE PEOPLE @NIKEVAULT

I was very fortunate to attend the "Pacquiao for the People" event at Nike Vault in Los Angeles. They transformed the Vault into a Pacquiao showcase with memorabilia and gear all over the place. Like with past Pacquiao fights Nike is releasing more Manny gear and shoes. This time it's the Nike Trainer 1.3 Max MP+ which was raffled off to because of such low quantity. There was an EA Sports Fight Night tournament, free food and drinks and a DJ to entertain the crowd. The night ended with a Q&A with the man himself Manny Pacquiao. It was even better hanging out with friends talking kicks. Enjoy the pictures!

EA SPORTS FIGHT NIGHT ZOOM HUARACHE TRAINER LOW

On the heels of the Playstation release, Nike has teamed up with EA Sports to make the Fight Night Zoom Huarache Trainer Low Premium. Even tough there is no Manny Pacquiao logo on the shoe it is considered a Pacquiao sneaker because of his endorsement of the EA Sports Fight Night game. The limited release of around 360 pairs has made these very difficult to get as the May 7th fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosely draws near.

PLAYSTATION X NIKE HUARACHE TRAINER LOW MLB THE SHOW JOE MAUER

Nike Trainers have been a hit lately and now the new Huarache Trainer Lows have gotten a boost with a recent collaboration with Playstation. The MLB "The Show" Joe Mauer editions were released last week. The limited numbers along with the popularity of Playstation helped these sell out quick. Comfortable shoe, great colorway and PS logo, what more could you ask for.

Obsidian is nice!

ZOOM KOBE VI CHAOS

Kobe debuting the Chaos VIs versus Blazers on 4/8/11

The Lakers have not been successful the past couple of years when Kobe wears the Chaos theme shoe. This recent version is considered a supreme which means a $150 price tag. The Ink/white/volt/grey colors blend well together with the infraredish color of the sock liner. 



CHAOS! CHAOS! CHAOS!



color blocking is on point


The Volt color is much brighter then the previous cyber

JORDAN 2011 BLACKOUT

In case you haven't noticed Jordan Brand has made a comeback with the Jordan 2011. The latest colorway is the "Blackouts" which features a black patent upper and icy soles. What sets this sneaker apart from other is what's on the inside. Two sets of insoles allows you to choose your comfort/performance. Great colorway on an excellent shoe.
