Nike’s Hyperdunk has certainly evolved since its introduction in 2008. Flexing the latest in Nike tech, it sets the standard as the best all-around combo for the serious baller who likes to work out on both hardwood and blacktop. Sporting a gang of country-inspired colourways in previous years, the Hyperdunk family has been a proud representative throughout Olympic campaigns and NBA rosters. Updated for 2014, the all-new model takes on seriously teched-out dimensions. Lunarlon cushioning provides an ultra-soft responsive ride, Flywire construction dynamically aids the natural motion of the foot, and a solid-rubber herringbone outsole handles the business underneath. Traction, durability and performance are a step ahead of the rest.
SNKR FRKR was lucky enough to road test the new Hyperdunk 2014 earlier this week, getting a good look over these four introductory colours that are now landing at select Foot Locker doors. Check out the break-downs below for a look at each model, and find them them landing on shelves right now.
NIKE HYPERDUNK 2014 (BLACK/METALLIC SILVER)
Coated in an illusive armouring of black-on-black and paired with ferocious reflective hits, this Foot Locker exclusive Hyperdunk 2014 is one serious piece of court weaponry. A completely Hyperfused construction in black murders out the upper, utilising subtle hits of metallic silver as the spare bullet in the chamber – killer! These will make a statement every time you step onto the court. If you're chasing a pair, they are dropping in limited numbers, so don't be stally!
NIKE HYPERDUNK 2014 (WHITE/UNIVERSITY RED/OBSIDIAN):
We saw a sneaky preview of these a couple weeks back when they emerged in the e-world, but these USA-inspired joints need to be seen in person to be believed. White sets the tone through the base layer, but it is down low where all the serious stuff pops off, dipped in a magnificent star spangled red and navy lathering. Murica!
NIKE HYPERDUNK 2014 (LUCKY GREEN/SONIC YELLOW/GORGE GREEN):
Nike revisits the famed 'Green and Gold' combination worn by the 2008 Australian OIympic Basketball Team, delivering a second take with the updated 2014 silhouette. Proudly fly the flag for the country you hail from!
NIKE HYPERDUNK 2014 (UNIVERSITY RED/UNIVERSITY GOLD/TEAM RED):
Crafted in this racy red and yellow combination, the China-inspired cues run deep with this one. Dipped almost completely in University Red, golden hits bring the shine down below, but it's the secondary hit of Team Red that really sets these boots off. If the upper wasn't enough to keep your opponents stunned, the heavy yellow dosages underneath are sure to get them jaw-dropping when you're gettin' above the rim.
