Before being a household name, Giannis showed flashes of athleticism that only caught the eye of basketball purists. That was the case until the 2015-16 season, which saw Antetokounmpo grow into a highlight machine. While his highlights were diverse, his shoe game stayed about the same for two seasons, with Giannis rocking the Nike Kobe 10 through the 2016-17 season as well. The colorways that were worn even stayed consistent with white, black, or green renditions.
Giannis preferred the engineered mesh low-top Kobe 10, although there was an “Elite” high-top utilizing Flyknit as well. The heel Zoom Air unit on the shoe provided a responsive bounce, while the Lunarlon used in the forefoot gave off softer cushioning.
