Only the best of the best athletes are awarded their own basketball signature shoe. With the launch of the Nike Zoom Freak 1 reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is now a member of a small and distinguished group of NBA superstars that have received this special honor from their respective footwear brands.
Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Donovan Mitchell, Damian Lillard, Steph Curry are all part of this elite club of handpicked players. Now they welcome the 24-year-old ‘Greek Freak’ as their first international member.
The latest colorway of the Nike Zoom Freak 1 has appropriately been named ‘Coming to America’ to pay tribute to one of Giannis’ favorite movies. The 1988 cult classic featuring Eddie Murphy portraying an African prince draws a fitting parallel to Giannis’ own journey to America to pursue his dream of becoming an NBA player.
The shoe itself comes equipped with double stacked Zoom Air Units which act like a responsive cushion. A special forefoot lockdown system adds stability while enhanced outsole patterns provide improved grip for quick cuts.
The Nike Air Zoom Freak 1 is the perfect blend for Gianni’s relentless up-tempo style of play. An unconventional basketball shoe for an unconventional player who is the pride of Greece, the king of Milwaukee & the future of the NBA.
