Zoom Freak 1 'Coming to America'
FREAKISH SPEED, POWER AND CONTROL.
"Coming to America," the 1988 cult classic, remains an influential centerpiece in the upbringing of Giannis Antetokounmpo. A favorite from his youth, the film draws a glaring parallel between Giannis and Prince Akeem, the character portrayed by comedic icon Eddie Murphy. Akeem journeys from the fictional nation of Zamunda to America on a royal quest to find the woman of his dreams who'll be his future queen. Similarly, Giannis' hoop dreams from the European leagues in Athens, Greece to the greatest stage in the world, the NBA, have made his hopes of international crossover into a reality.
2 Zoom Air units under the heel stacked on top of each other provide extra cushioning for hard impacts and extra responsiveness for getting back down court.
Internal bands lock down over the forefoot when you lace up, helping to keep you stable and fully contained.
The geometric traction pattern provides grip for quick stops, starts, and changes of directions on court. A section of the outsole is inspired by roses in remembrance of Giannis' late father.
Family is what's most important to Giannis. Design details on the midsole and outsole honor his parents and 4 brothers.
A rubber clip extends from the outsole up the side for lateral support.
The padded collar helps lock you in at the heel.
