This Nike Zoom Freak 1 is a Shoe With a Story

Date: July 30 2019

By: Ged McMahon


There’s nothing quite like a shoe with a story, and this iteration of the Nike Zoom Freak 1 really packs in the feels – designed as a tribute to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s late father Charles. Dubbed the ‘Roses’ colourway, the silhouette is blessed with a striking white and ‘University Red’ colour scheme, while ‘Metallic Gold’ Swooshes provide a nice additional touch.

According to Giannis, ‘The roses are a tribute to my dad because he loved them. With every step I take, he’s always going to be there helping me.’ The rose theme continues on the outsole, with three large roses included within the multidirectional traction pattern – a feature that you can spot on more Freak 1s than just this colourway.

 The outsole also boasts the powerful message ‘I am my father’s legacy’, a further tribute to the NBA MVP’s dad who sadly passed away in 2017.

Want to stop and smell the roses? Pairs of this shoe with a story are set to hit Nike and selected stockists on September 7.
