However, the deal was upgraded to around $10 million per year back in 2017. Giannis was also promised a signature shoe under Nike. The first Giannis signature shoe made its debut back in June 2019. After the success of the first shoe, Nike also released the Nike Air Zoom Freak 2 recently in July 2020.
