Giannis Antetokounmpo’s off-season may have started a little earlier than expected thanks to Kawhi and the Raptors, but the Greek Freak can ease some of the pain with the release of his highly anticipated first signature sneaker: the Nike Freak 1.
To match Giannis’ big (albeit sometimes unpredictable) playing style, Beaverton have highlighted the sneaker with an oversized backwards midsole Swoosh. His ‘34’ jersey number comes embroidered on the heel with unique blue stripes, creating a logo inspired by the Greek flag. Meanwhile, a rose petal pattern on the outsole also pays homage to Giannis’ Greek heritage, as well as his late father. Last but not least, a double-stacked heel Zoom Air unit packs plenty of performance-geared cush.
The Nike Freak 1 arrives at select retailers and Nike on July 3.
