Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has represented the Super Eagles of Nigeria with his latest signature shoe.
Giannis who plays for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Greek national team is of Nigerian descent.
His father played for the Super Eagles of Nigeria and now his latest shoes do.
A statement about the new Nike Air Zoom Freak 2 said, In Nigeria—the homeland of Giannis’ parents—boundless potential, youthful exuberance and infectious charisma fuel national pride.
“Soccer is seen as a uniting force for these passions, providing Nigerians with an outlet for self-expression. Giannis’ late father, Charles, bonded with his sons through the beautiful game, furthering Giannis’ own passion for the sport.
“This bright-hued homage nods to that connection by dressing the silhouette in the same colors and textures that grace the uniforms of the Nigerian national team. The result perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Naija: audacious, fast, fun, and stylish.
