Giannis gets his first signature shoe, now available to the public ($120 at Eastbay in black/white with more colorways and customization for $140 at Nike.com), the Nike Zoom Freak 1. The Nike Zoom Freak 1 was designed with Giannis’ rangy movements in mind, with multidirectional traction being particularly aggressive at the pinky toe section.
The traction extends up in this area with rubber clips, similar to the midsole on the Kyrie signature line. This was done up to aid with Antetokounmpo’s extremely long-striding euro steps, providing control when Giannis goes side to side.
Further performance features include two stacked Zoom Air units in the heel for extra bounce when landing.
The low-cut and lightweight Zoom Freak 1 can be compared to another signature line with the Kobe models. This seems intentional as the Greek Freak has played in Kobe sneakers for most of his career, as you can see in Giannis Antetokounmpo’s locker.
