Anyone who’s played an intense game of Uno knows that the card game can be as passionate as a game on the basketball court! So it only makes sense that Uno is teaming up with Nike and the NBA’s Giannis Antetokounmpo for a collection of athletic footwear and apparel inspired by Mattel’s popular game.
Antetokounmpo, an avid Uno player himself, worked with Mattel and Nike to design and curate the new collection, which celebrates Uno’s 50th anniversary. The first element of the collaboration is a footwear line, which includes Nike’s Zoom Freak 3, Air Force 1 and Offline shoes in Uno colorways. There will also be a Zoom Freak 3 member-only black colorway featuring a 50th Anniversary Uno logo on the tongue and jokers on the toe.
The apparel capsule collection portion of this collaboration will include a cotton t-shirt and hat featuring Antetokounmpo’s number written on Uno cards, alongside the Uno logo. The shoes and apparel will be available on nike.com in the coming months.
Finally, there will also be an Antetokounmpo-branded Uno deck 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 Antetokounmpo’s deck. From November 1 to 30, players can get these cards and other themed rewards in the app.
