The Greek Freak has been nicknamed “the Alphabet Soup” during his childhood days due to his hard-to-spell surname. For the same reason, along with the enormous number of letters in his last name, the two-time MVP got his “Letter Bro” nickname in China.
This iteration of the Nike Zoom Freak 2 will come in desert sand, sail, camellia, and gym red color scheme. The pair is infused with desert sand uppers along with red leather Swoosh and yellow heel tabs atop sail midsoles and outsoles. It then finishes with letters from Giannis’ long name highlighted throughout the tongue and the heels.
If you are wondering how the pair performs on the court, here is an in-depth review of the Nike Zoom Freak 2.
The Nike Zoom Freak 2 “Letter Bro” is set for release on January 22 at selected Nike stores for a price tag of US$120.
Here are more detailed angles of the new colorway of the Nike Zoom Freak 2.
