When it comes to innovation in Nike Basketball shoes, the Nike Hyperdunk usually leads the way. First introduced in 2008, the Hyperdunk seamlessly combined light weight, cushioning and advanced tech, which continue to be hallmarks of the 2013 version.
Says Nike Basketball's press release:
Now in its new 2013 edition, the Nike Hyperdunk continues to evolve. Designed by Peter Fogg, a trailblazing Nike footwear designer, the Hyperdunk lives up to his impeccable reputation for design. Over the past two decades, Fogg has created some of the brand's most coveted shoes for running and All Conditions Gear (ACG), including the Nike Air Zoom Tallac, Nike Air Terra Humara, Nike Zoom Terra Sertig, Nike Ashiko and Nike Structure Triax.
“Although basketball shoe design has greatly transformed over nearly a century, it's the small, crafted details that make a noticeable difference on the court,” said Fogg. “The Nike Hyperdunk 2013 moves intuitively with the foot, while the tailored tweaks we've made lead to an incredibly lightweight, breathable and durable shoe for both indoor and outdoor play.”
The 2013 model features Dynamic Flywire, Hyperfuse construction and Lunarlon cushioning, making for a comfy fit and ride. "“When I first put the new Hyperdunks on, I didn't want to take them off,” said NBA Kyrie Irving of the shoe, which he consulted on. “The performance was great and I feel like the shoe's versatility benefits my game.”
