The soft giant and his journey from Adidas to Nike
Robin Lopez is a big man standing at 7 feet with gigantic feet as he wears shoe size 20. He is also a heavy NBA player who has always used his height and weight to dominate the courts. After being drafted out of Stanford University, Lopez signed a shoe contract with Adidas, and he had always rocked the stripes until 2020 when he switched to Nike.

The most popular kicks that Lopez has laced over the years are:
Nike Zoom Freak 1
Giannis Antetokounmpo received the Nike Zoom Freak 1 as his first signature shoe after a long wait.
