Nike Zoom Freak 3 R&D
FREAK, THE 3RD.
There has never been a player like Giannis. His freakishly athletic game combines massive strides, misdirecting Euro steps, and the ability to play any position—and get by anyone on his way to the rim. The new Zoom Freak 3 is built to enable Giannis to get the most from his unique skillset. It gives him a fine-tuned fit, forefoot responsiveness and multidirectional traction to help him stay in control.
The lightweight, molded midsole is hollowed out under the forefoot, where 2 Zoom Air pods are positioned. This allows the Zoom units to move like pistons through a shaft, with space to compress under your weight then expand and return your energy.
A sleekly molded hook-and-loop strap is made from flexible, durable TPU. It wraps over the lower laces to help reduce internal foot movement by harnessing you over the cushioning.
Euro Step Stability
An external piece of lightweight, durable TPU is built into the outer-side midsole. It helps keep your foot stable over the footbed, specifically when making quick side-to-side directional changes like the Euro step.
Traction to Run
The computer-generated outsole has a pattern like a topographical map. It optimizes ground contact to provide stop-and-go traction in multiple directions.
Additional cutouts in the foam under the toe and heel help reduce overall weight.
Molded grooves in the rubber outsole let it flex for optimal traction and control.
