Nicknamed the Alphabet Soup growing up, due to his hard to pronounce last name, Antetokounmpo and his accolades are being honored with the sneaker’s new design in alphabet lettering. The shoe comes in a Desert Sand/Sail/Camellia/Gym Red color scheme where the neutral tones are seen throughout the silhouette. The alphabet-detailing is accented in an array of colors and is printed on both the tongue and the heels. Warmer tones are used to emphasize the details of the shoe, including the Nike Swoosh, adorned in a bright red on the side, the deep orange laces, and an eye-catching yellow heel tab. To finish off the shoe, support ridges are highlighted in a light blue, while the soles of the shoe stays with the desert-tan theme. Etched into the heel is the word Freak vertically scrawled in handwritten-font, to further pay tribute to the famed MVP star. The decoupled outsole for additional shock-absorption capabilities is designed specifically for the Greek Freak‘s signature euro-step.
The Nike Zoom Freak 2 Alphabet Soup is retailed at $120 USD and releases on January 22, 2021 on Nike.
