In a land where pronouncing their surname was as challenging as a mind-boggling crossword puzzle, Giannis Antetokounmpo and his siblings swiftly earned the moniker “Alphabet Soup.” This quirky label has since become synonymous with the Greek basketball sensation and his talented brothers. Right from the inception of his debut signature sneaker, the “Alphabet Bros” colorway has undeniably cemented its place as a cornerstone in the collection of the two-time League MVP.
Following the recent revamp of the budget-friendly Giannis Immortality 3 model, the Zoom Freak 5 is now jumping on board with a coordinating burgundy-based attire. Paying homage to the Immortality series, an opulent “Dark Team Red” shade envelops every nook and cranny of the shoe. From the breathable mesh upper to the meticulously crafted leather overlays and tongue, this crimson hue unequivocally reigns supreme. In delightful contrast, a creamy warm tone conquers the midsole, the inner side of the tongue, and the Nike Air branding embellishing the heel. To add an enchanting touch of whimsy, a delicate pastel lilac hue graces the inner heel’s swoosh and the laces of the right shoe. And in a departure from its predecessors, the alphabet letters are scattered subtly along the profile swoosh, lending an air of charm to the shoe.
Take a moment to marvel at the official images of the Nike Zoom Freak 5 “Alphabet” below. Mark your calendars for November 11th, for this sneaker will hit the shelves and inject a sprinkle of alphabet soup magic into your esteemed sneaker collection.
