Nike Giannis Immortality: Freakiness unleashed and expanded

It has always been nature versus nature, but the two actually don't have to clash. Talent still needs the right context or affordances to unfold. The team behind the Nike Giannis Immortality understand this, so they equipped the shoe with features the bring out the outlandish potentials of its wearer. Specifically, the shoe has the following benefits:

Supportive lightness. The upper is made of materials that are light without jeopardizing lockdown. The shoe is also equipped with an internal strap to further ensure stability.

Ease with footwork. Besides great traction, the outsole also provides flexibility and lateral support. It is able to do this because it is partially partitioned, allowing it to bend and flex more naturally during motion.

Enhanced responsiveness. Ensuring impact protection without sacrificing court feel and support is tricky business, but the Nike Giannis Immortality is able to do this in the heel area by alternating between foam for compression and rubber for response, all in a creatively soft wavy pattern. 

Giannis Immortality from Nike: A tribute to family

Giannis Antetokounmpo admits that without family, he will never be who he is today. To pay tribute, the Giannis Immortality bears the subtly engraved names of his mom, dad, brothers, and son. This move is very similar to Kyrie Irving's and even LeBron James's frequent featuring of their families in their own signature shoes.
