Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo comes from a basketball family, and Nike is acknowledging his lofty lineage in proper fashion on the Zoom Freak 1 “All Bros 3.” A second follow-up to 2019’s “All Bros” launch colorway, the “All Bros 3” uses warm pastel hues to nod to Giannis’s four brothers and best friends — Kostas, Thanasis, Francis and Alexis.
Cool teal shades coat the mesh upper, and are accented by sturdy sport blue bottom eyestays with anchoring systems visible under the upper’s outer layer. A small blue Swoosh appears on the medial midfoot, and a small black Swoosh is present at the bottom of the throat. Black Giannis-centric branding graces both the tongue and heel, and “All Bros” is stamped on the sockliner.
Things are then ramped up a touch on the midsole, which boasts a signature backwards Swoosh on the lateral side, dressed in black and speckled with pops of coral. The rest of the midsole’s EVA foam shows a summer-y sorbet fade, going from teal on the heel to coral on the forefoot and featuring the names of Giannis’s parents on the medial side. Finishing touches are provided by a fully translucent outsole that allows you to see the heel’s double-stacked Zoom Air cushioning.
If this mixture of hues appears somewhat familiar, that’s because it is: it’s adjacent to the combos present on Nike Sportswear‘s “Have A Nike Day” pack, which offered colorful iterations of classics like the Air Max 1, Air Max 95 and Air Force 1. However, this family first colorway is about the ballin’ Antetokounmpo brothers, not a throwback Swoosh Brand marketing slogan.
