- Shoe Story: The Zoom Freak 1 is Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first signature shoe. The design takes cues from his favorite signature line, the Kobe series and caters to the 6’11” forward’s unique game. The Zoom Freak 1 has the extra-responsive cushioning, forefoot lockdown, and multidirectional traction needed to complement the ‘Greek Freak’s’ freakishly athletic game. Ancient Greek Fret patterns heavily influenced the design for the primary logo featured on the tongue, an interlocking “G” and “A” that are meant to symbolize his journey, strength, and strong connection to his family. This simplistic black and white pair with green accents matches his Bucks uniform and is anything but simplistic in performance.
