Giannis Wears Roses on the Soles of His Shoes

 Nike Zoom Freak 1 Roses edition sneaker

Giannis Antetokounmpo's first signature sneaker collection, Nike Zoom Freak 1, includes this edition called "Roses" which was introduced last September as a tribute to his dad Charles who passed away unexpectedly in 2017 at the age of 54. Giannis, for those of you who don't know, plays for the Milwaukee Buck's and was named the NBA's MVP at the end of the 2018/19 season. Born in Athens, Greece, the Bucks selected him as the 15th overall pick in the first round of the 2013 draft.
