Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao was seen sporting a pair of new kicks days after athlete apparel giant Nike severed ties with him over his controversial comments on same sex marriage.

The orange shoes the eight division world champion was rocking turned out to be that of Under Armour.

Photos of Pacquiao tying and wearing the Under Armour sneakers surfaced on social media after being posted by a member of his inner circle, GMA News reported.

However, there is no confirmation whether he is now officially affiliated with the Maryland-based company.

It was not the first time that fans of Pacquiao got a glimpse of him wearing the popular shoe brand.

Fans also posted edited images of Pacquiao wearing Under Armour gear while training.

Some of his fans also clamored for Pacquiao to be an official Under Armour endorser so he could be among the brand’s elite lineup of ambassadors which includes NBA 2015 MVP Stephen Curry, who's also a devout Christian.

Pacquiao was in hot water last week following his controversial stand against same sex marriage, in which he called members of the LGBT worse than animals.

This prompted Nike, a known supporter of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community to drop him as one of their top product endorsers.

Pacquiao is scheduled to face off with Timothy Bradley Jr. for the third time for his retirement match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 9.
