Out of the hundreds of players in the NBA, very few have their own signature shoe, and even less have had an iconic signature sneaker line that will be remembered after they stop playing. Giannis Antetokounmpo has only released his first shoe, but he is the latest talent with the potential and star power to create another massive sneaker line. ‘The Zoom Freak’…..
For a start, Giannis is signed to Nike, the most successful sneaker brand, and seen as he is only 24 years old, he has plenty of time to grow his shoe empire. Last year, the “Greek Freak,” was able to get his first MVP award, as well as become captain of the East in the all-Star game. With this kind of success, it’s no wonder fans from across the world have grabbed themselves a pair of his highly anticipated first model.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is also known for his fun and modest persona, after overcoming a tough childhood in Athens, and this humbleness has made him an easy player to cheer on.
Although Giannis is a very marketable player, for the Zoom Freak line to succeed in the future, its designers must keep producing stylish silhouettes. The Zoom Freak 1 received mixed receptions looks wise, as the reversed swoosh split sneakerheads down the middle, but it is a fine starting point for the signature line to expand from.
The Zoom Freak 1 currently stands as a decent first sneaker, and Antetokounmpo’s line can be Nike‘s next big thing, but although it looks like everything is going in the right direction, Jordan’s on to his 34th shoe, so Giannis has quite a way to go!
