Following the successful launch of their first themed collection, “Coming to America”, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nike continue with the second part inspired by the 1988 film. The Nike Air Zoom Freak 1 Soul Glo draws inspiration by the Soul Glo hair spray commercial that made Price Akeem change his haircut.
Rich gold yellow and red tones, as in the commercial, are highlighted on the black mesh upper. The tongues are now dressed in patent leather and the original GA wordmark on the right shoe tongue is swapped with the Soul Glo logo complete with the two Jheri-curled actors from the commercial. Giannis’ family nods are still present as the “I am my father legacy” and the names of his brothers can be found on the outsole.
Retailing at 119€ , the Nike Air Zoom Freak 1 “Soul Glo” is available at Fuel .
