Now here’s something different – celebrate UNO’s 50th anniversary with wild, new UNO gear from Nike!

Working with 2019-20 NBA MVP Giannis Antetokunmpo, Nike and Mattel have teamed up to create a new line that incorpoarates the UNO game’s iconic colors, design elements and a special card deck into the following products:

  • Footwear line featuring Nike’s signature Zoom Freak 3, Air Force 1 and Offline with UNO colorways and Giannis’s design. There will also be a Zoom Freak 3 Member-only black colorway with an UNO 50th anniversary logo on the tongue and wild cards across the toe, plus fun primary color hits to complete the UNO look.
  • Special-edition Nike apparel capsule including a classic cotton t-shirt and hat with Giannis’s number displayed. The footwear line and apparel capsule will be sold on Nike.com in the coming months.
  • Giannis-branded UNO deck featuring a new rule where players can “force a turnover” to steal an extra discard. The deck will be sold on Mattel Creations and NTWRK starting November 11.
  • As a part of the collaboration, the UNO! Mobile app will integrate the Giannis-branded UNO deck to use on iOS and Android devices. With the cards, players can use the “force a turnover” rule and decorate their profiles with themed rewards. The cards and other rewards will be available during the UNO x Giannis in-app event from November 1 through November 30.

In a press release, UNO fan Antetokounmpo said:

“I want every product to be genuine and authentic, and playing UNO with my brothers is a big part of our lives. 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.”
