While Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first signature shoe with the Swoosh has only been available since the early Summer of 2019, the shoe has taken off with high success. Releasing in several different eye-catching colorways, the Greek Freak’s first signature shoe has been worn by a multitude of NBA players on the hardwood. Ahead of the 2020 NBA All Star weekend, the Freak’s first signature shoe is set to release in a special colorway honoring his favorite film, Coming to America. Here’s all we know of the upcoming Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Employee of the Month’, releasing for the NBA All Star weekend.
The shoe itself will pay tribute to McDowell’s from Giannis’ favorite movie, Coming to America. We’ve seen the Zoom Freak 1 already release in its first Coming to America colorway this past Summer, as well as the most recent ‘Soul Glo’ release. Now, a third colorway paying homage to the movie will be releasing.
