Nike has played its cards right, and it’s now swooped up its first-ever collaboration with UNO. The fun collection of apparel and footwear, which coincides with UNO’s 50th anniversary, was created with 2019-20 NBA MVP and UNO fan Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Embodying the game’s design motifs and spectrum of red, green, yellow, blue, and black are Nike’s Zoom Freak 3, Air Force 1, and Offline Mule silhouettes. This visual treatment appears on a cotton T-shirt and hat branded with Antetokounmpo’s number too.

“Playing UNO with my brothers is a big part of our lives,” says the Greek basketball star. “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.”
A members-only Zoom Freak 3 sneaker in a black colorway features wild cards on the toe box and an UNO 50th-Anniversary logo on the tongue, with accents of primary colors throughout. UNO you want it.
And what’s UNO without its playing cards? As part of this partnership, an Antetokounmpo-branded deck will retail exclusively on Mattel Creations and NTWRK from November 11, with an extra rule thrown in that lets players “force a turnover” and steal another discard. A digital version of the spread will be playable on the UNO Mobile App for iOS and Android users through November.
As for the apparel and footwear, Mattel says fans can finally get their game on and nab the collection on Nike.com in the coming months.
