Giannis Antetokounmpo is finally an NBA champion, and went as far as winning NBA Finals MVP for the 2020-21 season. To celebrate, the Greek-native has asked his family at NIKE, Inc. to reimagine the budget-friendlier Nike Giannis Immortality in a colorway appropriate to be alongside both the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy and NBA Championship Ring.
Akin to previously-seen commemorative iterations from the North American conglomerate, the upcoming sneakers indulge in a clean and regal “White/Black/Metallic Gold” colorway. The textile upper predominantly boasts a “colorless” arrangement that allows for accompanying hues to revel in the spotlight. There aren’t any mentions of a championship on the basketball shoe, but the shimmering golden detailing and the timing of official images surfacing suggest the tri-color style has been produced for the occasion. While history has yet to pan out, it’s unlikely #34’s ring chase stops at his first.
Enjoy official images of Giannis’ latest sneaker ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch soon.
