After receiving his contract extension from Nike last year, Giannis Antetokounmpo — the Greek Freak — has now hinted at a potential signature sneaker with Nike.
When the story of the extension was first announced last year, rumor had it that the Bucks star will be treated to a signature sneaker in the 2018-2019 season. Antetokounmpo’s tweet from yesterday seems to confirm the rumor, and the timetable matches perfectly.
It will be interesting to see what his sneaker will come to be due to Antetokounmpo’s eccentric play style; his mixture of guard skills and the frame of a big man will certainly call for some pretty unique features to support his needs.
In an interview with NBA.com, Giannis mentioned that his dream shoe will be somewhat of a hybrid of the Kobe line and the Kyrie line. Judging from his descriptions and his current rotation on court, we might get a low cut Giannis sneaker in the near future.
