Before Giannis Antetokounmpo reveled in his first ever NBA Finals this summer, or his first ever MVP award in 2019, he drowned in the pure ecstasy that was his first-ever smoothie. Based on an epic tweet that the then Bucks rookie unleashed in 2014, Giannis had never tried a smoothie in his life – and it’s safe to say that his life was forever changed and transformed, never to revert back to his smoothie-deprived life.
For this newly released colorway of the impressive Giannis Immortality sneaker, Nike recalls this viral moment of the future HOFer’s life in America by applying a fruit-flavored colorway that matches a smoothie blend, while a mosaic of fruits are featured on the medial side. On the left tongue is a “Super Smoothie” label, further calling out the Greek Freak’s unabashed love of drinkable blended fruits.
This new colorway of the Nike Giannis Immortality (which Nike is calling the “Force Field”) is available now at Nike for $80 (the cost of about a dozen smoothies). If you’re more interested in the signature shoes, the Zoom Freak 3 is hitting US retailers in August.
