Giannis Antetokounmpo is a freak. If the pure physical tools of an agile 6’11” big man with a 7’3” wingspan weren’t enough, he also has the speed to beat you in transition, the ball handling skills of a guard, and an unbeatable command of the infamous Eurostep. His skillset is unheard of. Unprecedented. Unguardable.
It’s not just his unique skillset and physical power that sets Giannis apart though. With the release of the Nike Zoom Freak 2, Giannis is redefining the way we think about basketball shoes.
With it’s speed-first shape (check that pointed toe) and pronounced outrigger, the Zoom Freak 2 is a unique play on the standard basketball shoe. The design is inspired by Giannis’ unique movements on the floor, but the tech can be applied to anyone’s game.
Just as Giannis has smashed the conventional way a 6’11” forward plays, he is also making us reconsider the way basketball shoes look and feel. Let’s break down a few things that make the Nike Zoom Freak 2 a truly distinctive sneaker.
