The Nike Hyperdunk has become one of Nike’s most consistent basketball shoe that they have to offer. Nike first launched to Hyperdunk in 2008 in which NBA players such as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and many other Nike athletes wore in the Olympics. It has been very popular amongst consumers and teams as well. Many different AAU, High School, and College’s wore the new Nike Hyperdunk that year for their team shoe.
The Nike Hyperdunk 2016 is this year’s new model that has been a very consistent shoe from Nike each year. It retails at a price of $140 and can be purchased from Nike.com and many other retailers such as Eastbay, Finish line, and Footaction. There is a low top version of the Hyperdunk that retails for $130 and a Flyknit version that retails for $200. The Flyknit version is made up of a knitted upper and has full-length zoom air for cushioning.
Some of the features that the Hyperdunk has is heel and forefoot zoom air units. It delivers a low-profile cushion. It provides impact protection when planting and landing hard on your feet. It will allow you to play longer with less pain on your body. It features a textile/fuse upper that is breathable and supportive. Allows for air flow throughout the shoe to keep your feet dry. It is a durable shoe and will last so you can play in them for a good amount of time throughout the year. Fuse is a soft and lightweight, but supportive material that allow for movement in certain areas and support in others. It also has Flywire cables which works together with you shoe laces that give you a nice tight/secure feel that keeps your foot from moving in the foot-bed. The Herringbone traction pattern provides multidirectional traction that will have you secured on any movement preformed on the court so you will not slip. The high-top version has a high ankle collar which provides support to the ankles without restricting the movement of the ankle. This feature can aid in preventing ankle injuries.
I bought the high-top version of the 2016 Nike Hyperdunk. I have enjoyed playing basketball in them so far. I have been playing in them a lot and they are holding up well. If I had to give these a rating, I would give them a 4.5 out 5. They are a great basketball sneaker, and if you are looking for a new shoe to hoop in I would highly recommend you getting the 2016 Nike Hyperdunk.
