Nike releases two more colorways of the Zoom Freak 1 this weekend
Nike’s definitely keeping the spotlight on the reigning MVP as we roll into August. After debuting with the All Bros and Black/White colorways, Nike Basketball adds two more colorways to the mix with ‘Coming to America’ and ‘Roses’.
Coming to America
Growing up, Giannis loved the ‘Prince Akeem’ movie (yes, in Greece, they called Coming to America ‘Prince Akeem’). In a way, the movie somewhat represents Giannis’ own journey in America and the NBA. The new colorway is done with a leopard print upper, which is Akeem’s royal garb in the movie. The gold Swoosh is seen on the shoe’s midsole while ‘Coming To America’ is embroidered on the tongue. The faux fur tongue and heel tab add detail to the sneaker. The Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Coming to America’ retails for Php 6,295 and is now available at Titan (Fort).
While Giannis has paid homage to his favorite movie and his brothers, he definitely knows how to look back and pay homage to the one who introduced the game to him — his father. Coming in with a clean white upper with red and gold accents, the ‘Roses’ colorway is a touching tribute to his late father and hero, Charles Antetokounmpo. During his funeral, Giannis let a single white rose on his father’s grave as a means to honor him and express hope for the future. The rose graphic can be seen on the shoe’s outsole, right beside the inscription ‘I am my father’s legacy’. The Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Roses’ is now available at Titan (Fort, UPTC, Shangri-la) and retails for Php 6,295.
The Nike Zoom Freak 1 is now available across other retailers around the metro. Drop by your favorite Nike store or stockists for availability for these new colorways.
