Giannis couldn't care less about the haters.
Thus far, it appears as though the Nike Air Zoom Freak 1 has been met with approval from the sneaker community - but, as always, there are some haters. In regards to the latter, Giannis seems completely unbothered by their lack of support for his first signature shoe.
According to Nike, the Air Zoom Freak 1 pulls on inspiration from Giannis' love for the Nike Kobe line, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering the Greek Freak rocked Kobes throughout all of last season. The kicks feature a double-stack Zoom Air unit along with a multidirectional traction pattern that aids positioning at the extremes of his lateral strides — the big toe and pinkie toe — as well as meeting more traditional needs of a sound defensive stance.
The first "All Bros" colorway is set to launch this Saturday, June 29, followed by a black and white rendition and a white "Roses" colorway that nods to Antetokounmpo's late father.
