A First Look at the Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Coming to America’

A first look at the Nike Zoom Freak 1 based on the cult classic film “Coming to America”.

While the Nike Zoom Freak 1 has yet to release in the US, it looks as if they’re available on shelves overseas.

The colorway is one we didn’t see coming as they point to a movie that is rumored to get a long awaited sequel over 30 years after its original release: “Coming to America”. We’re assuming it’s one of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s favorite movies for it to be prominently featured on his signature shoe.

This version of the Zoom Freak 1 has the film’s title embroidered on the tongue while the colorway features an animal print printed onto the textile build — similar to the animal clothing worn by Eddie Murphy on the film’s poster.

There is no official word on when the Nike Zoom Freak 1 will release, but we’ve been told by a friend working at a popular retailer that they have the Zoom Freak 1 slated for a July 5 release.

Let us know what you think of the Nike Zoom Freak 1 ‘Coming to America’ below and stay tuned for official updates regarding the shoe’s release.

  1. Shoot, is it just me or does that price tag look like $165? I hope that’s just a special edition one, because if it’s Euros it’s going to be 185ish.

  2. Eh. They’re ok. The cw is kinda awful. The title name on the tongue looks like something you get done at a mall kiosk. Shoe looks ok. Some angles are better than others. Definitely going to be a shoe that’s save by cw’s

  3. This colorway is super ugly. The orange one and the grey one previously shown are much better
