Greek Freak, MVP, call him whatever, because Giannis is an absolute beast that just got his first signature shoe with the Swoosh. We’ve been covering the Zoom Freak 1 and it’s release, now that the first colorway has released, it was only a matter of time we receive a special edition colorway. Let’s take a closer look at the Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Coming To America’.
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s favorite film, “Coming to America” (he called it “The Prince”), is the basis for the reigning MVP’s first themed apparel and footwear collection. An official collaboration with Paramount Pictures, the Air Zoom Freak 1, along with a complementary T-shirt and cap, are embellished with animal print and rich gold accents to mimic the royal garb worn by Prince Akeem upon his formal entrance to the U.S. A track jacket and short complete the capsule.
This colorway pays homage to Prince Akeem, a pampered African Prince played by Eddie Murphy. This colorway has different design elements such as the ‘Coming to America’ tongue logo and the cheetah print on the upper, that give it that African Prince flare.
Look out for the Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Coming To America’ to release on the Nike SNKRS App, Friday, August 2nd, 2019, and will release globally Saturday, August 3rd.
