Mattel has teamed with Nike to launch an UNO footwear collection.
The range has been developed in coordination with the 2019-20 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player and UNO fan, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
“I want every product to be genuine and authentic, and playing UNO with my brothers is a big part of our lives,” said Antetokounmpo.
“The Nike team has done a great job bringing my ideas to life, and I think they’ve created something for every Nike, UNO and basketball fan in this collection.”
The range sees Nike’s signature Zoom Freak 3, Air Force 1 and Offline given UNO colourways with Giannis’s design. There will also be a Zoom Freak 3 Member-only black colourway with an UNO 50th anniversary logo on the tongue and wild cards across the toe.
Accompanying the footwear will be a Nike apparel collection featuring a classic cotton t-shirt and hat with Giannis’s number displayed, as well as a Giannis-branded UNO deck that will be sold on Mattel Creations.
“Working with Nike and Giannis to design and curate this collection was truly an honour, and this collaboration shows how UNO can bring people together, including the Antetokounmpo family,” added Ray Adler, Global Head of Games, Mattel.
“Partnering with this iconic brand and world-renowned athlete is the perfect celebration of UNO’s 50th anniversary.”
