PORTLAND, Ore. — 2019 NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo recently saw the launch of his Nike signature shoe, the Air Zoom Freak 1, earlier this summer.

On Friday, Nike released a new shoe and apparel collection paying homage to Antetokounmpo’s favorite movie, “Coming to America.”

The collection features plenty of animal print and gold accents, which Nike says is a nod to Prince Akeem, played by Eddie Murphy in the 1988 comedy.

The collection is available now at Nike.com. View photos
