Nike Zoom Freak 4
The Nike Zoom Freak 4 upgraded last year’s Zoom Freak 3 enough to bring us a more promising performance basketball shoe.
Colorway: White/Black/Barely Volt/White
Release Date: August 2022
Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best players in the NBA today. He has two MVPs, a Finals MVP, and a championship under his belt and it’s still relatively early in his career. He also boasts his fourth signature sneaker, the Nike Zoom Freak 4, which he’ll wear during the upcoming 2022-2023 NBA season. His previous signature wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great, either. Nike’s design team changed things just enough this time for us to call the Zoom Freak 4 an upgrade.
