The left shoe’s upper comes swathed in blue with Total Orange appointments playing heavily at the laces and insole. The right shoe is green with Dynamic Yellow hits.
The new “Roots” colorway pays homage to the player’s heritage and family, specifically his parents – Charles and Veronica – who hailed from Nigeria before moving to Greece, where Giannis grew up. Their names come emblazoned on the outer midsoles. His brothers’ names also appear on the heels.
A staple in Zoom Freak design, the Total Orange and Dynamic Yellow sneakers’ outsoles feature the line’s exclusive rose-inspired traction pattern in honor of the player’s late father, who loved the flower.
Large lateral reverse swooshes in Dynamic Yellow and neon pink punctuate the Zoom Freak 1’s see-through mesh overlays in alternating blue and green. The right, green shoe gets purple EVA inserts on both sides, along with a purple-colored rose traction pattern on the outsole. The left blue shoe features blue EVA inserts.
The collection’s signature “GA” logo is stitched at the tongue and featured on the sneaker’s outsole along with the phrase “I Am My Father’s Legacy.” The number 34 is embroidered on each heel.
