Original Posting (03/27/2020): During the Summer of 2019, the Swoosh officially unveiled the reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first signature shoe. Now, we have our first look at its successor model—the Nike Zoom Freak 2.
The Zoom Freak 2 looks to arrive with a completely new silhouette in comparison to its predecessor model. Materials look to be an upgrade, featuring a jacquard, woven mix, whereas the midsole is very aggressive with two green plates wrapping up above the midsole for lateral containment. Further details include an oversized Nike swoosh laterally with a Giannis signature logo stamped at the heel. The tongue material appears to have a glossy finish, hinting it may be a patent leather. Completing the look is a foam midsole that is likely to be decoupled due to the midfoot plate separating the heel and forefoot.
