Nike Zoom Freak 3: Unleashing Potentials
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a basketball prodigy. He has the ability to transfer energy from leg to leg in just a split second, leaving defenders wondering what just went past them. The Nike Zoom Freak 3 is about unleashing the incredible skills and talents of Giannis and whoever wears it. Specifically, it delivers the following:
Solid traction. A stable and full-force grip on the floor is made certain by a computer-generated pattern on the outsole. It looks like a topographical map, and it maximizes contact with the the floor.
Strapped-down feel. The laces are reinforced by a TPU strap to ensure high levels of support and containment.
Lateral support. Side-to-side footwork like the Euro step is an important part of Giannis's game. The Zoom Freak 3 ensures proper execution of such on-court moves because it has a lightweight and sturdy TPU overlay on the lateral side.
Fueled steps. Two Air Zoom units are placed right under the forefoot, and they compress with the weight of every step before they spring back in place to deliver reliable energy returns.
