Nike Giannis Immortality Review

Pros:
Traction performed well.
Responsive and lightweight on foot.
Cons:
Support is inconsistent.
Materials could perform better.

Performance of the Nike Giannis Immortality:

Most reviewers felt that the traction on the Nike Giannis Immortality performed great. The rubber compound and the deep grooves on the pattern gripped nicely on indoor courts and didn't pick up too much dust on dirtier courts. The full-length Phylon cushion consistently surprised reviewers. The Phylon is firm but not as firm as the cushion found in other budget models. It has a slight amount of impact protection as well. Materials feel nice on foot, but the performance was inconsistent among reviewers. Reviewers also found the support and lockdown to be a bit inconsistent. The Immortality is lacking in heel padding, and the forefoot containment can be spotty at times. At the end of the day, the Nike Giannis Immortality is a budget-friendly model that performs quite well when taking the price into consideration.

The Nike Giannis Immortality is one of the best signature athlete budget models available. It performs just as well as some signature models despite lacking the same tech that they feature. Definitely a great bang for your buck type of shoe.

When you're playing in the Giannis Immortality, you feel very light and really quick. The traction is amazing, and the cushion is responsive. Support could've been a bit better, but it wasn't a deal-breaker. I really like this shoe.

The Nike Giannis Immortality is a pretty decent budget model. However, there are other shoes at the price point that do outperform the shoe. The cushion and materials feel nice, but I did have issues with support.

The Giannis Immortality is a solid performer in the subline of Giannis's Zoom Freak line with Nike. These also provide lateral containment and consistent traction while also feeling light.

Best feature is the support - foot feels very locked in. However the cushion is a bit lacking which is a little disappointing given the bulkiness of the heal. Court feel of the forefoot feels great, but my personal preference would be to have a less bulky heal. And if the heal is bulky, as in this case, would think it would have a little more cushion. Materials are good, especially the soft materials. Also think these are a pretty low profile shoe (again think the heal is a little much)

This shoe is terrible DO NOT BUY IT. I have had TWO PAIRS both ripped all over. From October of 2021 to January of this year I have gone through two of these. I don’t know why anyone else has talked about this. It is NOT JUST ME EXPERIENCING THESE ISSUES my friends have also bought them only to have the uppers ripped a month later. TERRIBLE DURABILITY. Great everything else. I WILL BET UR PAIR WILL BE RIPPED WITH IN ABOUT A MONTH OR SO.

I wore one size bigger than my actual shoe size (13) but still felt secure and traction felt good but pick up little bit of dust and one wipe did the job, cushion felt funny at first but I got use to it after an hour or so. (First time wearing it) Also first tournament tmrw wish me luck (Aug 25)

I am a wing/forward and overall liked the shoe quite a but my feet were too wide; so after a couple of months I ended up tearing them at the seams. The shoes arent destroyed or unusable but I still feel like they are far too wide for some fits but its obviously negligible if you have regular or narrow feet.

The performance on these shoes are great, I’ve been using these for eight months on dusty outdoor courts and the traction is freaking good still bites just like the day I got them, the only problem is the material, the edges are tearing and the cushion seems ok but overall a good shoe.

No surprise that herringbone traction gets the job done. The Immortality performed very well. Wiping wasn't needed because of the deep grooves in the traction pattern.

The traction is top-tier. It's one of the best patterns that you can get right now. The bite is insane on clean courts, and it wasn't picking up much dust on dirtier courts.

The traction is just ok despite being herringbone. It performs well on clean courts, but on your average court, you'll find yourself sliding quite a bit.

Being a budget option, the cushion used is just Phylon. Regardless, it performs decent enough, especially after a short break-in period.

There's nothing special in terms of the tech used for the cushion. It's low to the ground and still provides impact protection.

The Giannis Immortality features a full-length Phylon cushion that's just okay. It's more on the firmer side, but you'll still get some impact protection.

Even though the materials are comfortable, they are also thin. Lots of mesh and synthetics were used on this model.

The textile mesh is thin, but I love the way it feels for the price. However, the synthetic materials used towards the back half of the shoe aren't the best.

The curved edge at the back of the shoe helps with rolling into your stride, but it also makes the shoe feel a bit wobbly. At the front of the shoe, the outrigger is amazing.

The torsional support isn't the best. The lateral containment wasn't bad, and the shoe did its job stability-wise.

There's not enough heel padding in the back of the shoe, which caused heel slippage. I also felt my foot sliding off the footbed, but the shoe does have a wide base and a decent outrigger.

There is solid lateral containment since side-to-side coverage is a focal point for Giannis's playstyle.

It should be fine for most, but if you have wider feet, you may want to go up half a size.

I would recommend staying with your true size with these because the materials stretch out.
