Giannis didn’t have too many highlights during his (2013-14) rookie season, but he did showcase flashes of the freakish athleticism that would define his career. Case in point is the sequence in the video where Giannis ran the length of the court to block a shot from behind – before running full-court the other direction to sky for the dunk.
The sneaker Giannis wore for this early moment was the Nike Hyperfuse 2010. This model was a game-changer for the industry, forgoing the leathers of past performance sneakers for synthetic uppers that provided more durability and breathability. The Greek Freak does appear to get attached to shoes, seeing as this shoe was three years old.
The Nike Hyperfuse 2010 is currently unavailable at retailers.
