Greece Native, Giannis Antetokounmpo recalls one of his favorite movies for inspiration on his latest signature shoe. In collaboration with Paramount Pictures, check out the official images of the Nike Zoom Freak 1 “Coming to America”.
Giannis out of anyone would know what coming to America for the first time would feel like. As he was born and raised in Greece, Giannis is actually still fresh to American soil. Drawing similarities between himself and Eddie Murphey’s character Prince Akeem in the movie “Coming to America”, a Nike Zoom Freak 1 was born.
The upper comes dressed in a subtle leapord print thats a nod to Prince Akeem’s shawl that plays on to the “Freak” role Giannis has taken on. Another exotic feature is a black fury tongue that displays “Coming to America” embroidery in gold. A metallic gold Nike Swoosh matches on the midfoot as a white midsole and a transluscent speckled gold outsole completes the design.
