Anyone who has played an intense game of Uno knows that the card game can become as thrilling as a game on the basketball court! So it makes sense that Uno is teaming up with Nike and NBA’s Giannis Antetokounmpo for a collection of athletic shoes and clothing inspired by Mattel’s popular game.
Antetokounmpo, an avid Uno player himself, worked with Mattel and Nike to design and organize the new collection, which celebrates Uno’s 50th anniversary. The first element of the collaboration is a line of shoes, which includes the Nike Zoom Freak 3, Air Force 1 and Offline shoes in Uno colourways. There will also be a black colourway reserved for Zoom Freak 3 members with an Uno 50th anniversary logo on the tongue and jokers on the toe.
The clothing capsule collection portion of this collaboration will feature a cotton t-shirt and hat with the Antetokounmpo number written on Uno cards, next to the Uno logo. The shoes and clothing will be available on nike.com in the coming months.
Finally, an Antetokounmpo Uno deck will also be available as part of this collection. It will feature a new rule where players can “force a turnover” to steal an extra card. This deck will be available from Mattel Creations and NTWRK starting November 11.
To help celebrate this new collection and Uno’s ongoing anniversary, the UN! The mobile application will also integrate the Antetokounmpo deck. From November 1 to November 30, players can get these cards and other themed rewards in the app.
