Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit

Every year around this time Nike’s Hyperdunk gets a bit of an update. Usually this means a slightly changed upper, or maybe a new outsole pattern. This year, however, Nike’s React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit feels like a completely different shoe.

From the bottom up, this basketball shoe is outfitted with some of Nike’s most advanced technology. The outsole, for instance, was developed in concert with Nike Sports Research Lab. Using pressure maps recorded by the in-house lab, the design team built a complimentary traction pattern that grips exactly where athletes need it most. Amazingly, the outsole isn’t even the coolest part of this shoe. Nike’s new Hyperdunks are the beneficiary of a brand new midsole cushioning technology called ‘React’. This foam manages to combine three highly sought-after traits – a lightweight feel, responsiveness, and durability. The result of over 2,000 hours of basketball testing and hundreds of different iterations, the shoe provides all of the responsiveness athletes need to explode into a fast break or make quick pivots. Look for these in stores and online on August 3rd.
